Domain: Joseph Perrier Joseph Perrier founded this small champagne house in Châlons-en-Champagne in 1825. Laurent-Perrier was the proprietor for a brief period before Alain Thiénot took over in 1998. The company produces a range of high quality wines from non-vintage Brut (Royale) through to one of the most refined prestige cuvées in Champagne, Joséphine, which is systematically bottle-matured for more than a decade. The house owns 21 hectares of vineyard which provide 25% of its needs. The remainder comes from 30 crus in Montagne de Reims, Côte des Blancs, and the Vitry region.
