The 19th century neoclassic private mansion of the House of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin located in Reims (France), has been entirely restored.
The Hotel du Marc has had a complete freshening up, from the façade which was severely damaged in the First World War, to the updated interior design.
The renovation work has involved many different talents, ranging from professionals who specialize in historic preservation to artists and renowned designers such as Mathieu Lehanneur, Pablo Reinoso, Fredrikson Stallard and the Campana Brothers.
Established in 1811, as one of the first houses of champagne, Perrier-Jouet debuts a suite collaboration with paper artist Jo Lynn Alcorn.
Since it’s inception, Perrier-Jouet has treated the process of making champagne as an art form, and this flowery champagne campaign is no different.
Through the art of finely hand cut paper, Jo Lynn Alcorn highlights the essence that corresponds with champagne maker’s five, distinct cuvees, and the quality and flavor notes found in each.
