Debra Meiburg meets Herve Deschamps, Chef de Cave of Champagne House Perrier-Jouët.
A true veteran of the Champagne game, Debra catches up with Herve Deschamps, Chef de Cave of Perrier-Jouët since 1983 (yes, 1983!). They discuss exactly what it takes to get to that enviable position, along with a chat about blending and how it is possible to predict what each blend will become (hint: it requires a lot of tasting and absolutely no computers!). They go on to muse about Perrier-Jouët’s Design Miami – where the idea comes from, what the motivation was and whether Herve thinks the feminin bottle design has affected the market. Finally they talk about the fruit behind the bubbles.
