Art Nouveau : Perrier-Jouët champagne opens up the Maison Belle Epoque

Summary

Registered on the UNESCO list of world heritage, and carefully restored, the Maison Belle Epoque is the pride of Champagne Avenue, in Epernay.

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.
