Maison Perrier-Jouët announced the upcoming arrival of Séverine Frerson, who will be working alongside Hervé Deschamps, the Maison’s Cellar Master, who is preparing for his succession after 35 years at the Maison.
Hervé Deschamps arrived at Maison Perrier-Jouët in 1983. A decade later, he became the seventh Cellar Master since the Maison was founded over 200 years ago. As a guardian of Perrier-Jouët’s style, he has maintained the floral and intricate character of the Maison’s cuvées: the non-vintage Classics range, as well as the Belle Epoque vintage collection. For over twenty years, he has shared his passion for champagne all over the world; his influence spreads from the Maison to French culture itself, a contribution which was officially recognised in 2016 when he was named a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
Hervé Deschamps is now passing on the values of Maison Perrier- Jouët to Séverine Frerson. Over the coming years, they will work closely together to preserve the elegance and quality of the Maison’s champagnes.
