World’s First Living Legacy Champagne from Perrier-Jouët
Perrier-Jouët proudly celebrates its 200th anniversary in Paris with the unveiling of the world’s first Living Legacy Champagne – Perrier-Jouët Bi-Centenaire.
In Paris, Champagne House Perrier-Jouët recently celebrated its bicentenary with the unveiling of Bi-Centenaire—the very first Living Legacy champagne designed to be passed on to future generations.
An exclusive guest list gathered for the unveiling of a new kind of Champagne experience by the house renowned globally for its Belle Époque Cuvée.
Guests were also treated to the unveiling of a new work of art commissioned from American artist Daniel Arsham, designed to embody the spirit of Bi-Centenaire—A true invitation to celebrate life.
Perrier-Jouët Bi-Centenaire tells the unexpected tale of a great vintage wine with two stories. The first takes place today: a champagne-lover treats himself to a magnum of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque 1998. Many years later, a descendant in turn enjoys a magnum of Belle Epoque 1998, passed down through the generations, preciously stored in a private cellar in Perrier-Jouët for up to 100 years.
To achieve this elegant defiance of time, the vintage has been carefully chosen for its exceptional ageing capacity by current Cellar Master Hervé Deschamps, the only seventh cellar master in the house’s 200 year-history.
Speaking on the night, Chairman & CEO of Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët Lionel Breton: “We are very proud celebrate tonight the Bicentenary of Perrier-Jouët with this unique champagne experience as a real tribute to the house’s remarkable craftsmanship and passion for passing on a sense of French art de vivre to future generations”.
Perrier-Jouët Bi-Centenaire is available in very limited quantities (100 pieces only) at the Champagne House’s Boutique in Epernay and by appointment only including a privileged hospitality experience.
Perrier-Jouët Bi-Centenaire is also available through the exclusive Pernod Ricard network for an average RSP of 10 000 euros.
