MAISON PERRIER JOUET
Founded in 1811 in Epernay, Maison Perrier-Jouët is one of France’s most historic champagne houses, but also one of its most distinctive, renowned for its floral and intricate champagnes which reveal the true essence of the Chardonnay grape and an enduring tradition of savoir-faire – an unparalleled expertise of only seven Cellar Masters since its foundation. A boutique house with a family spirit, Perrier-Jouët has been profoundly influenced by its founders’ love of nature and art – twin inspirations which allow it to create exceptional experiences and moments of wonder that enhance everyday life.
Since its 1902 collaboration with Art Nouveau pioneer Emile Gallé, creator of the anemone design for its Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque prestige cuvée, Perrier-Jouët has commissioned work from established and emerging artists, including Daniel Arsham, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, Miguel Chevalier, Makoto Azuma, Tord Boontje, Studio Glithero and Simon Heijdens, and more recently Vik Muniz, mischer’traxler, Ritsue Mishima, Andrew Kudless and Luftwerk.
SEBASTIEN MORELLON PERRIER-JOUET HEAD CHEF
Sébastien Morellon sums up his passion for his job in a few words: “Cooking is my whole life”. A simple and authentic statement just like his attitude to cooking. With a professional cookery and culinary arts diploma in his pocket in 2009, Sébastien Morellon left his native Picardy for Paris. He joined the kitchens of the capital’s finest restaurants at the Four Seasons George V, Park Hyatt Vendô me and Hotel Barriè re where, for four years, he crossed paths with Pierre Gagnaire. The latter offered him the post of Sous-chef at the restaurant La Grande Maison de Bernard Magrez in Bordeaux in 2019.
Under the triple-starred chef, Sébastien Morellon developed a new vision of cuisine: a sincere, offthe-beaten-track approach, in which respect for even the humblest ingredient is essential. He has been applying this philosophy at Perrier-Jouët since his arrival as Executive Chef in January 2021. He invents a nature-inspired cuisine that gives full rein to creative freedom, echoing the House’s two founding pillars – art and nature.
