Savoir’ Faire & Savoir’ Vivre

World Travel Magazine - - Just In - CHRIS­TINE LEE

At the cross­roads of Mai­son Per­ri­er­jouët’s 200-year-old her­itage and the leg­end that is champagne, a party like no other cel­e­brated their unique vi­sion and his­tory. That the joyous li­ba­tion has been born in fer­tile soil, makes this leg­end sweeter still - the grape a metaphor for Eper­nay’s abil­ity to fos­ter the world’s joy and cel­e­bra­tion.

On an en­chanted evening in early July, set among the re­gion’s beau­ti­ful rolling vine­yards and gen­tle hill­sides, Mai­son Belle Epoque in Eper­nay re­opened af­ter a two-year ren­o­va­tion. Per­rier-jouët cham­pagnes wel­comed su­per­mod­els and celebri­ties as hosts greeted them in cos­tumes evok­ing the Belle Epoque. Per­rier-jouët Blanc de Blancs and leg­endary Per­rier-jouët Belle Epoque cu­vées were paired with in­no­va­tive del­i­ca­cies by Miche­lin-starred chef Akrame, in­clud­ing lob­ster hot­dogs and roasted pineap­ple. The night cel­e­brated art de vivre and fo­cused on the mag­i­cal in­ter­sec­tion be­tween art and na­ture, the vi­brant present and thrill of a land­mark past cul­mi­nat­ing in the exquisitely ren­o­vated Mai­son Belle Epoque against the back­drop of the world’s largest pri­vate col­lec­tion of French Art Nou­veau.
