Art Nouveau : Perrier-Jouët champagne opens up the Maison Belle Epoque
An Art Nouveau gem, the Maison Belle Epoque opens its doors in Epernay, with the complicity of Perrier-Jouët Champagne.
Registered on the UNESCO list of world heritage, and carefully restored, the Maison Belle Epoque is the pride of Champagne Avenue, in Epernay. Throughout this sober building, one discovers the treasures of leading artists, from Majorelle to Daum as well as Lalique and Gallé. Rare pieces of furniture and its period interior decoration are testimony to the refinement of the early 20th century.
Maison Belle Epoque, the window-display of Perrier-Jouët
From the ground floor to the upper level, the same unique touch. This exceptional home is the perfect example of a period that sparked a multi-faceted art revolution. 150 artisans were necessary to rehabilitate each intricate detail. The rooms once again feature mural fabrics, carpets, mosaics, curtains, luminaries, and even door knobs in order to bring back their original splendor.
An elegant bottle, symbol of the romantic period
Everything begins in 1902 with a special order meant to decorate the bottle of the vintage wine of kings. Emile Gallé, ring leader of the Art Nouveau movement and the Ecole de Nancy, imagines a simple decor. Enameled and featuring Japanese anemonies, green and white, it was to become the image of Perrier-Jouët. Since, the drawing continues to showcase the colours of this sparkling upscale brand around the world.
