Following the wedding ceremony which will take place in the magnificent Courtyard of the Prince’s Palace, some of the House’s most prestigious cuvées will accompany the receptions, including the official dinner. A personalised cuvée will be served in honour of this historic event.

Lionel Breton, Chairman and CEO for Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët, commented:” The Perrier-Jouët Champagne House was born of the love union of its founders Pierre Nicolas Perrier and Adèle Jouët 200 years ago. In this special year of the House’s bicentenary, we are proud and delighted to accompany the celebrations for the wedding of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco to Miss Charlene Wittstock with our prestigious Cuvées”.

Since its foundation in 1811, Perrier-Jouët has always been associated with royal events. In 1861, HRH Queen Victoria granted Perrier-Jouët a Royal Warrant of Appointment. She was followed by the Swedish Court and by Leopold I of Belgium. Napoleon II and the Empress of Russia, Marie of Hesse-Darmstadt, were also honoured patrons of the House.

Perrier-Jouët are extremely proud to accompany this prestigious event and this is a great tribute to the Champagne House, whose remarkable 200 year-heritage has been marked by only seven cellar masters, and is embodied by the iconic Belle Epoque Cuvée.
