Perrier-Jouët unveils new-look Champagnes28th March, 2014 by Patrick Schmitt
Perrier-Jouët has launched two gift boxes in time for Mother’s Day, following the launch of a limited edition vintage cuvée to celebrate spring, and a new cuvée for nightclubs in the US.
Most recently, in advance of Mother’s Day this Sunday, the Champagne house, which is owned by Pernod Ricard, has unveiled the Grand Brut limited edition gift box comprising a bottle of Perrier-Jouët’s brut NV and a pair of Champagne flutes.
Similarly, it has also introduced a Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque 2004 gift box containing two brand branded flutes along with the house’s prestige cuvée in time for the same occasion on Sunday 30 March (pictured, left).
Both Perrier-Jouët gift sets are on sale at Harvey Nicholls, with the Grand Brut special edition costing £47.50 and the Belle Epoque priced at £160.
Meanwhile, Champagne Perrier-Jouët has released a limited edition vintage cuvée to celebrate spring, called Belle Epoque Edition Première 2007.
Unlike the standard Belle Epoque, which contains on average 50% Chardonnay in each vintage release, the Belle Epoque Edition Première has as much as 90% of this grape, all which comes from grand cru vineyards selected “for their freshness, finesse and liveliness”, according to cellar master Hervé Deschamps.
The special springtime edition is also available in the UK from Harvey Nichols Bar & Wine Shop – as well as Selfridges – and retails for £240.
Elsewhere, in the US, Perrier-Jouët launched in September last year a new brut NV cuvée called Nuit Blanche, which is a sec style Champagne that has been blended particularly for nightclubs.
