Champagne Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque 2014 120th Anniversary
Maison Perrier-Jouët celebrates the anniversary of a flower. More than a flower, it is a symbol of the Maison’s connection with art and nature since 1811. The founders, Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Rose-Adélaïde Jouët, have perpetuated their passion for botany, their attachment to terroir, their love of art-and their vision of champagne.
In 1902, brothers and art collectors Henri and Octave Gallice met Emile Gallé, a noted botanist and leader of the Art Nouveau movement, who took nature as his inspiration. To keep the Maison’s heritage alive, Emile Gallé decorated a Perrier-Jouët with a spray of Japanese anemones, evoking the floral style of the Maison’s champagnes. An icon was born, an emblematic flower that time would never wither. 120 years later, it makes Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque vintage cuvées instantly recognizable worldwide.

The anemone of biodiversity
The Japanese anemone designed by Emile Gallé was transformed by the duo’s creative vision. Seventy species from the vineyards of the Champagne region mix and mingle to make up the anemone, in a vibrant, colorful, multilayered representation of their interdependencies. This biodiversity anemone illustrates the role that all species, including humankind, play in the biological balance of the ecosystem to which they belong. It is this magnificent and complex whole that Maison Perrier-Jouët is helping to preserve, both in its vineyards and beyond. With this limited anniversary edition, Maison Perrier-Jouët shares its joyful, positive and conscious vision of nature.
