Perrier-Jouët launches "most extravagant" wine

11 September, 2014

Champagne Perrier-Jouët has released unveiled a £248 Cuvée Belle Epoque Rosé 2005 which it describes as “the most extravagant wine of the Belle Epoque Collection”.  

The limited-edition bottle was designed by Brazilian visual artist Vik Muniz, who created “a fairy-tale fusion of a brilliant golden hummingbird with the iconic Perrier-Jouët anemone motif”. 

The producer said a glorious Indian summer in 2005 led to a complex wine that has achieved a perfect balance during nine years of aging.

Cellar master Hervé Deschamps chose the 2005 vintage of the prestige cuvée Belle Epoque Rosé because he feels that it is the most extravagant wine the firm has created.

Muniz said: “Much as Perrier-Jouët has long embraced Art Nouveau’s love of nature and enchantment, I took the idea of captivation in a natural setting as the inspiration for this motif.”

The wine is on sale at Selfridges and Harvey Nichols.
