Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Brut 2007 Limited Edition “Small Discoveries” By Mischer Traxler
This collectible, limited-edition wine was produced in an exceptional year and highlights Perrier-Jouët’s precise style.
The inspiration of beauty and art come together in champagne Perrier-Jouët thanks to the shared passion and dedication of Pierre Nicolas Perrier, a cork supplier from a family of winegrowers, and Rose Adèle Jouët, the 19-year-old daughter of a respected calvados producer. Married in 1811, this young couple founded the House of Perrier-Jouët and set about acquiring the most prized vineyards in the Côte des Blancs. Over 200 years later, Perrier-Jouët is known throughout the world for its incredible line of Champagnes. Since its establishment in the early 19th century, the company has had just seven cellar masters, each trained by his/her predecessor (the current Chef de Caves is Hervé Deschamps). Each production is limited in volume, and five times throughout the company’s history — in 1879, 1882, 1902, 1908 and 1910 — Perrier-Jouët has decided not to release any bottle due to poor harvests. Perhaps most notably, Perrier-Jouët is recognized for its finest luxury cuveé, Belle Epoque, which comes in an elegant flower bottle originally designed by Emile Gallé in 1902. Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Brut 2007 Limited Edition “Small Discoveries” by mischer’traxler is a floral and elegant champagne from an exceptional and unique vintage, crafted by Cellar Master Hervé Deschamps to express the singularity of the Perrier-Jouët style. “Belle Epoque 2007 is a crystalline vintage whose subtlety and generosity highlight the precision of the Perrier-Jouët style,” says Deschamps. “It is an epicurean wine.” Based in Vienna, artist duo mischer’traxler developed Small Discoveries as a tribute to Perrier Jouët’s Art Nouveau heritage and strong connection with nature. The two artist met whilst studying at Kingston University London and have since won several awards including the Wu Guanzhong Art & Science Innovation Award 2012, the Austrian Experimental Design Award 2009, and an honorary mention at Prix ArsElectronica 2009. “Nature provides a constant spectacle of miniature surprises and exquisite visions, revealing the beauty of a flower as it opens or a butterfly taking flight. In so doing, it establishes a lively, deferential dialogue with mankind.” — Katharina Mischer and Thomas Traxler Made from a blend of 50% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir and 5% Pinot Meunier grapes, and aged for six years, Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Brut 2007 Limited Edition “Small Discoveries” has a beautiful floral nose dressed in freshly ripened peach and pear.
