Hidden in between the big names. Moët to the right, Moët to the left, but right in between the these two buildings, A vintage mansion, between the modern giants, La Maison Belle Epoque, the home of the champagne house of Perrier-Jouët. The house established back in 1811 dates back to a romantic love story of the Épernay based cork producer, Mr. Perrier, and his wife, the daughter of a regional Calvados producer (Apple & Pear Brandy) Mrs. Jouët. The two got married in 1810 and established Perrier - Jouët. They seemed to make the perfect couple. Rose Adélaide Jouët, raised in the beverage production industry, focused on the wine making to this extraordinary champagne, while Pierre Nicolas Perrier used his relations and connections from his cork business to take care of sales and marketing. The perfect combination and perhaps the reason why still today Perrier - Jouët is regarded as one of the worlds finest champagne.
Later directors of the Perrier - Jouët house, Henri and Octave Gallice were big art lovers, in particular the "Belle Epoque" , which of course later had immense impact on this winery, dedicating its prestige brand, Belle Epoque to this. To incorporate the art of this epoque, each bottle of Perrier - Jouët Belle Epoque is a hand painted piece of art. The Belle Epoque, or in English, the Beautiful (time) period, took place in France from 1880 to 1914. It has characteristics of several aspects, such as peace, economic prosperity, optimism, science, technology, cultural innovation and economic prosperity, a bond of nature and art . Much French art during that time period was dedicated to just that and it, including Perrier - Jouët Belle Epoque. In addition to the this prestige wine and its hand painted bottles, a design was created by Emile Gallé for the Maison Perrier-Jouët. Maison Perrier-Jouët once was the home of directors, but is now open to the public and home to Europe’s largest private collection of French Art Nouveau.
