Champagne in Champagne

Experience Champagne like never before with Perrier-Jouët's Belle Epoque Society where champagne, art and history all come together for an unforgettable and enchanting moment.

A 45-minute train ride will take you from the French capital to Champagne country and straight into the bubbly world of Perrier-Jouët. For the first time in the house's history, Perrier-Jouët has opened the doors to its historic site and unveiled Belle Epoque Society, a celebratory experience where different spaces welcome you into the world of the champagne house.

On the historic site of Maison Perrier-Jouët the Cellier Belle Epoque, the house's new champagne bar, is where you are invited to sip on Perrier-Jouët cuvées curated by Cellar Master Séverine Frerson and pair with tapas-style dishes created by head chef Sébastien Morellon. Set in the maison's courtyard, the al fresco bar is a wonderful way to relax under the sun and sample the celebrated cuvées including the house's rosé champagne. The menu also includes two champagne-based cocktails, making sure every drink is as festive as possible for the occasion of being in one of France's most iconic regions.

Overlooking the courtyard is an exhibition space where you are invited to stroll through to take in works of art by international artists. The free entry to the exhibition space is a ticket to see works inspired by the house itself with the artists imagining and creating pieces that are at once an ode to Perrier-Jouët as well as a celebration of the relationship the house has forged with contemporary artists. Included in the pieces on show is the romantic Enchanting Tree by Tord Boontje, with the Dutch designer creating a tree with its branches delicately hooking and holding onto champagne flutes, creating an original champagne service with the flutes appearing to be hanging from the tree ready to be picked.

Across from the Cellier Belle Epoque on Avenue de Champagne is where the Perrier-Jouët founding family's home is located and where the UNESCO World Heritage listed mansion is now welcoming you for a unique culinary experience. With chef Sébastien Morellon working alongside renowned French chef Pierre Gagnaire, a 7-course meal has been designed to transport you to a magical time made complete with champagne pairings curated by Séverine Frerson. The champagne culinary experience can be appreciated al fresco, seated at a table overlooking the property's enchanting garden from where you can admire the delicate flowers and trees as they are met by a colourful sunset at dusk, or in the mansion's dining room surrounded by the largest private collection of French Art Nouveau in Europe for an evening full of art, history and culture.
