BELLE EPOQUE ROSÉ 2013 LIMITED EDITION
120th Anniversy Celebration
In celebration of the 120th anniversary of Perrier-Jouët’s Belle Epoque Rosé, the Austrian design duo mischer’traxler partnered with the champagne house to create a limited-edition gift box for its 2013 Belle Epoque Rosé to toast the symbolic milestone. Wine lovers can expect the rosé’s pale pink and copper bubbly sheen when poured into their glasses, as well as the pronounced notes of rose, peony, wild strawberries, raspberry, and pink grapefruit. But it’s mischer’traxler’s transformation of master art maker Emile Gallé’s 1902 Japanese anemone engraving that is the real draw of this special edition bottle. The design studio crafted its unique vision of the classic brand emblem, entitled the Anemone of Biodiversity, which features 70 species from the vineyards of the Champagne wine region mixed and mingled in a vibrant, multi-layered representation of their interdependencies. The collaborative design illustrates the role all species—including humankind—play in the biological balance of the ecosystem to which they belong. And it is this magnificent and complex whole that Maison Perrier-Jouët is actively working to preserve, both in its vineyards and beyond. Since its formation in 1811, founders Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Rose-Adélaïde Jouët’s shared passion for art, nature, and champagne have been passed down through generations—believing creative freedom and unconventional observation of nature is intrinsic to the history of champagne. These values shape Maison Perrier-Jouët to this day.
