Art Nouveau emerged across Europe in the late 19th century, creating – with its extraordinary inventiveness and freedom of expression – a stylistic revolution that anticipated the avant-garde movements of the 20th century. Its ideal was to bring beauty to everyday life through the rediscovery of authentic craft techniques and the celebration of nature as both a science and a source of inspiration. The parallels with Maison Perrier-Jouët are striking: not only were its founders fascinated by art and nature, and Charles Perrier a keen botanist who published treatises on viticulture, but its vision is founded on crafting nature into intricate floral champagnes that are an expression of elegance and refinement.
“The Maison Belle Epoque is an invitation to a certain art de vivre, to a moment suspended in time, a moment beyond time. It is an invitation to savour, not only champagne, but all the refinement that goes with it.”
Axelle de Buffevent, Style Director
