Champagne JOSEPH PERRIER
The house was founded in 1825 by Joseph Perrier.
Always family owned, 5 generations later it is managed today by Jean-Claude FOURMON. The only remaining House making champagne in Chalons-en-Champagne, its cellars are carved straight into the chalk hillside. These Gallo-Roman galleries incorporate skylights and a reflector to bring to some a little daylight.
Joseph Perrier owns some beautiful vineyards around 21 hectares in the heart of Champagne, on the right bank of the Marne Valley, around Hautvillers and Cumières, two villages classified 93% in the echelle des crus, where Pinot Noir is mainly planted but also with two hectares of Chardonnay.
Each separate champagne cuvee created by Joseph PERRIER has a clear and distinct character while retaining a recognizable House style.
In addition to the Cuvées Royales, a distinction used to celebrate the era supplying Queen Victoria and King Edward VII, the House has created many rare and precious vintages and in the prestige cuvee Joséphine, the ultimate expression of the cellar master’s art.
Our Cellar Master is the current guardian of the House style.
Champagne Joseph Perrier is proud of its history and unique situation as the sole Champagne House in the ancient city of Chalons-en-Champagne.
