Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Rose-Adélaïde Jouët shared a love of nature and the arts. She was a cultured young woman from a Norman merchant family; he a masterful vintner and botanist. A year after their wedding, in 1811 they founded Maison Perrier-Jouët: born of their desire to create a Champagne House with a difference.
The founders’ passion for art, nature and champagne has been passed down through the generations. Their son Charles Perrier, a botanist like his father, took over the House in 1848. The family philosophy of creative freedom and an unconventional observation of nature is intrinsic to the history of champagne. These values shape Maison Perrier-Jouët to this day.
Art Nouveau, inspired by the graceful, sinuous forms of nature, bloomed across Europe in the late-19th century. The movement’s exuberance and creative freedom paved the way for 20th-century avant-garde art. The ethos of Art Nouveau was to reinvent nature to re-enchant the everyday.
Maison Perrier-Jouët’s affinity with the Art Nouveau movement is best expressed by the emblematic anemone motif illustrated for the House in 1902 by Emile Gallé. Today, the House’s enduring bond with art and nature translates to an extravagant universe which reinvents luxury as a meaningful experience with artistic collaborations.
