Independent Champagne Houses

Joseph Perrier Champagne

Founded in 1825, Joseph Perrier are still family owned (fifth generation). Based in Chalons-en-Champagne, they have Roman cellars over two miles long. There are 21 hectares of vineyards in the villages of Cumières, Damery, Hautvillers and Verneuil, and these are planted with the three traditional grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. The grapes are harvested by hand and Joseph Perrier ages its wines for around 3 years to ensure the round, enjoyable house style. Joseph Perrier also buys in grapes from a further 20 vineyards based nearby to their own.
