PERRIER-JOUËT PRESENTS THE PERRIER-JOUËT BLANC DE BLANCS AT BRAND NEW WORLD SALON IN ZURICH
A perfect illustration of the Maison’s distinctive floral signature, this elegant new cuvée pays tribute to the vibrant freshness of the Chardonnay grape.
Vivacious and unrestrained, the Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs showcases the unique freshness of the Maison’s emblematic grape. To create it, Cellar Master Hervé Deschamps has selected an elegant blend of floral Chardonnays from the Champagne region’s best vineyards. The result is a wine of exuberant energy and vitality, characterized by wild hedgerow flower aromas of elderberry, acacia and honeysuckle, with a hint of citrus fruit. It is the perfect wine to accompany all the exciting pleasures of contemporary life – from the latest garden rooftop bar to boutique hotel lounges in the world’s most happening cities.
Its design is an ode to authenticity, the wine’s luminescent greenish-gold hue accentuated by a unique transparent bottle with festive notes of silver and gold. International chef Akrame Benallal has developed a selection of original recipes that complement its vivacious personality. This new cuvée is the second Blanc de Blancs creation by Cellar Master Hervé Deschamps, following his mythic Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs. It offers a perfect illustration of the unique style that is the Maison’s signature.
The use of discs made of polished and brushed brass creates elegant light reflections that captivate the viewer with their multiplication effect. Nicolas le Moigne reinterprets his “Podium” collection, which he designed in 2011 for the design gallery Helmrinderknecht in Berlin as part of Design Miami / Basel. His installation becomes a true sensory experience in honor of Perrier-Jouët’s new Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs cuvée.
Nicolas le Moigne’s designs are a celebration of juxtaposition. They show an understanding of, and capacity for, complexity and contrast: seemingly fragile yet resilient, at once artisanal yet also industrial, assuredly sophisticated yet without guile. Like a master swordsman he parries and ripostes between opposing materials, forms and conventions to produce designs that are rigorous and balanced.
This equanimity has brought the Swiss designer, a professor at ECAL/University of art and design Lausanne, to the attention of both manufacturers and design galleries alike. Working between industrial companies such as Eternit or Atelier Pfister and galleries in London, Paris, Berlin or Mexico, le Moigne’s dexterous approach is an elegant counterpoint to the chaos of a supersaturated design culture.
