The Royal Wedding Perrier-Jouet Bottle
Perrier-Jouet is now planning to put its latest limited edition champagne on sale for the public – if you are lucky enough to live in Monaco that is.
The bottle was created for the Prince Albert II of Monaco and Miss Charlene Wittstock royal wedding that took place earlier this year.
It was also a symbolic choice for Perrier-Jouet as the brand was born from a love story between founder, Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Adèle Jouet over 200 years ago. This made the limited edition version an ideal addition to the royal wedding with its romantic background.
The champagne was served in magnums at the official wedding dinner, which was held on the beautiful terrace of the Opera Garnier in Monaco.
There was also a dinner served by Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse and the Monte Carlo SBM teams. There were around 500 guests including European royalty, Heads of State and other notable personalities.
The champagne chosen for the occasion was describes as the “ultimate expression of elegance and refinement of Perrier-Jouet distinctive signature style” by Hervé Deschamps – the cellar master of the Perrier-Jouet house.
The bottle is labelled with “Marriage of HSH Prince Albert of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock Miss – July 2, 2011”.
This limited edition will only be sold in Monaco, with the Cuvée Belle Epoque 2004 costing 118€, and the Grand Brut at 31€. There will only be a limited amount of bottles sold, so you may have to be quick for your chance to toast the Royal couple of Monaco.
