La Maison Perrier-Jouët has come up with a concept ideal for sipping on vintage champagne. And for enjoying fine cuisine by Michelin-starred chef Akrame Benallal. HyperNature as the experiment is called, is a rooftop restaurant and clearly a must for the month of June. But hurry, it’s only there until Sunday, June 23.
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. To this day, nature has always been a great source of inspiration and the root of the history of Maison Perrier-Jouët. The historic brand is known for its fine selection of vintage champagne, complete with floral notes and complex flavors.
Which is something that HyperNature — a unique culinary project — is staying truthful to thanks to an ephemeral rooftop setting in the heart of the French capital. The pop-up rooftop bar is made up of a series of champagne and fine food tastings. Akrame Benallal — French Michelin-starred chef and one of Maison Perrier-Jouët’s Artisans of the Wild — will be cooking up a storm with delicate recipes dreamed up to fit perfectly with the floral notes detected in the different champagnes. The Cellar Master, Hervé Deschamps, will be guiding guests through a champagne tasting designed to examine the range and quality of the Perrier-Jouët brand. Additionally, British artist Laura Wood designed a tree of sorts, where guests can come to pluck a champagne flute while enjoying a spectacular view of Paris. Need we say more?
