Being so mesmerized by the beauty of Autumn, Perrier-Jouët Cellar Master Hervé Deschamps decided to create a special seasonal cuvée in tribute to the colours of fall with the Belle Epoque Edition Automne 2005 to celebrate the coming of Autumn.
Autumn is one of the most dazzling and enthralling seasons. With flaming reds, glistening yellows, oranges and rustic browns and the gentle bathing of light on vast landscapes, it presents an almost picture perfect image of the season. It is no wonder that one can’t help but be taken in by this season of enchantment.

“The richness of the 2005 vintage inspired me to create this cuvée in tribute to autumn’s allure and vitality as a way of savouring the beauty of an ephemeral season.” Says Hervé Deschamps, Perrier -Jouët Cellar Master.
Bringing together a unique blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, Deschamps has created a rare, ephemeral cuvée like no other. It is a marriage of allure, voluptuousness and vitality that conveys all the elements of this season of enchantment. This ephemeral cuvée is unique to the Perrier-Jouët brand, the only known champagne house to create bespoke cuvées inspired by the seasons and nature.
The Art of Nature on Perrier-Jouët Bottle
Perrier-Jouët has always drawn inspiration from nature with the desire to infuse beauty into daily life. In 1902, Emile Gallé, one of the Art Noveau movement’s most celebrated artists, designed a swirl of anemones wreathed in gold for the Perrier-Jouët bottle. An unusual bottle, it was a true homage to nature as a source of inspiration, where the swirls of the white flowers echo the floral and delicate style of the wine, and become the emblem of the House.

The Japanese Connection
Since its 1902 collaboration with Art Nouveau pioneer Emile Gallé, creator of the anemone design for the house’s Belle Époque prestige cuvée. Emile Gallé had always been interested in plants, with his hometown of Nancy being a centre for horticulture in late 19th century France. This interest eventually grew into a source of inspiration in his art.
Gallé soon discovered the art of Japan, which had often been associated with the representation of flowers. He thus shared a sensibility with Japanese art due to his own familiarity with motifs inspired by nature. Eventually, the influence of Japanese art began to be felt in his work. The anemone that adorns the Perrier-Jouët bottle is itself a Japanese flower.
A Haiku for Every Season
In joining to celebrate the 50th year of relationship between Japan and Singapore together with this strong connection to nature and Japan, Perrier-Jouët presents ‘A Haiku for Every Season’. Starting of with the Season of Enchantment with the launch of the Belle Epoque Edition Automne 2005 with a celebration of a Japanese autumn and its beauty.
Perrier-Jouët will continue to celebrate this incredible relationship with haikus for every Perrier-Jouët season.
The limited edition Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Edition Automne 2005 is available for private purchase.
