Joseph Perrier

This family-owned estate is the only champagne house in Châlons-en-Champagne, and has a remarkable history that has left its mark on the Champagne region. It has been producing exceptional champagne for over six generations. Enjoy a champagne tasting tour and explore its Gallo-Roman cellars which date back to the 4th century.

An exception Champagne house

A remarkable history

Joseph Perrier champagne is exceptional in more ways than one.

In the 19th century, Châlons-en-Champagne had several hectares of vineyards and ten major Champagne labels. Today, Joseph Perrier is the only Champagne House to remain in Châlons-en-Champagne.

Founded in 1825, the House rapidly expanded throughout Europe. Its champagne even became the official champagne of the British royal family. Indeed, the “Royal” distinction was awarded by Queen Victoria and King Edward VII. Some of the cuvées still bear the name “cuvée royale”.

This family-owned business, which has been in existence for six generations, produces the highest quality champagne thanks to its grape varieties classified as Grand Cru and Premier Cru, harvested on the hillsides of the villages of Chouilly, Cumières, Damery and Hautvillers

Gallo-Roman chalk-mining pits

2,000 years old

Of Gallo-Roman origin, the cellars extend over three kilometres. Retrace the history of these magnificent cellars featuring ogive-shaped vaults reaching 10 metres in height, light shafts and walls that bear witness to the work performed by thousands of men.

What makes them special? The cellars are on one level as they have been dug out of the hillside overlooking the house. The trees act as a natural climatic regulator, maintaining an optimal moisture content and temperature for the ageing process. These cellars house millions of bottles that mature for a minimum of three to five years.

After two years of intensive work to enhance the tour route, the cellars of Maison Joseph Perrier reopened at the end of 2020.
The Joseph Perrier guides greet you in a sleek and refined setting for a tailored tasting tour in the centre of Châlons-en-Champagne.

The Joseph Perrier collection

From the cellar to the table

The fruit of Joseph Perrier’s heritage is expressed today through 10 cuvées. Joseph Perrier champagne is especially enjoyable when served at the table, thanks to its full flavour and vinosity. At the end of the tour, you will have the opportunity to sample the cuvée of your choice. You can also take a detour via the shop to purchase some bottles, cases or souvenirs from the House.
