Perrier-Jouët House of Champagne unveils the 2005 vintage of its celebrated Cuvée Belle Epoque Rosé in a limited-edition bottle designed by internationally acclaimed Brazilian artist Vik Muniz. The artist has conceived a fairy-tale encounter of a brilliant golden hummingbird with the Perrier-Jouët anemone that has graced every Belle Epoque bottle for over a century. Originally created from scraps of gold the entire scene was photographed and applied to the Belle Epoque bottle via a gold plate. The bottle’s clear glass allows the wine’s salmon hue to offset Muniz’s sensual depiction.
The artistic collaboration between Perrier-Jouët and Vik Muniz is born a common devotion to craftsmanship and from a shared belief in nature’s power to inspire. Perrier-Jouët’s Cellar Master Hervé Deschamps chose the 2005 Vintage of the Belle Epoque Rosé for this limited-edition cuvée. Chardonnay, Perrier-Jouët’s grape of choice, is predominant in the blend while the cuvée owes its richness and pure, salmon-pink hue to the Pinot Noir variety. After nice years ageing in the house’s cellars, the result is a perfect balance between the year’s character and Perrier-Jouët’s floral, elegant house style.
The Belle Epoque Rosé Limited Edition by Vik Muniz provides the perfect match for special year-end celebrations. A luxury presentation case sets the seal on the ultimate gift for lovers of craftsmanship and artistry. This exclusive edition will be available from mid-October only in limited quantities.
