Perrier-Jouët is a Champagne producer based in the Épernay region of Champagne. The house was founded in 1811 by Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Rose Adélaide Jouët, and produces both vintage and non-vintage cuvee, approximately 3,000,000 bottles annually, with its prestige label named Belle Epoque.
Perrier-Jouët owns 266 acres of vineyards in the Champagne region. Today the house is under the Pernod Ricard umbrella of brands. Perrier-Jouët owns over 160 acres of vineyards, with more than half in the Grand Crus of Cramant and Avize.
This origin story of those house dates to 1810, when the Épernay-based cork supplier Pierre Nicolas Perrier married Rose Adélaide Jouët, the daughter of a Calvados producer. Perrier’s family owned vineyards in Dizy, Chouilly, Aӱ. Having been married just one year, the newlyweds begin producing champagne under the name Perrier-Jouët. Adèle focused on vineyards and winemaking; Pierre Nicolas focused on sales and marketing. Shipments to Great Britain began in 1815 and to the United States in 1837.
