Limited edition, limitless potential

From its inception in 1902, Japanese anemones have been the emblem of the Belle Epoque cuvee.

As a result, the champagne house has had strong ties to the art world ever since.

Emile Gallé’s choice of Japanese anemones displays not only his love of botany, but also his admiration for Japanese art.

Which is why well-known Japanese floral artist Makoto Azuma was the natural choice to come up with the first-ever artwork for the Belle Epoque cuvee.

Makoto Azuma has created a delicate composition that recalls the original design—an ethereal arabesque dotted with white Japanese anemones, flowers that are “as calm as they are beautiful”.

In this extraordinary dialogue through time, the bottle carries the work of two artists separated by one hundred years. And celebrates the freshness, elegance and floral accents of the Belle Epoque cuvée.

The limited edition bottle that has been out since this September, will encase the 2004 vintage, as selected by Hervé Deschamps, Perrier-Jouët’s cellar master. Deschamps explains that it is “the perfect expression of an exceptional year, the absolute essence of Perrier Jouët”. The 2004 boasts a long finish and a taste that hints at flowers and white fruit, before evolving into slightly spicy notes of fresh marzipan.

Watch the interview with Makoto Azuma on the video below.
