Perrier Jouët & Daniel Arsham
On the occasion of Perrier-Jouët’s 200th anniversary we have been invited to discover their collaboration with artist Daniel Arsham.
Inspired by heritage and values that are handed down over generations, Daniel Arsham has created a sculptured case, which reunites two magnum bottles of the 1998 Belle Époque, Perrier Jouët’s prestigious vintage.
LThe two cases, which fit together, are destined to be passed on – one to the buyer and the second to the heir of their choice, along with a message, which will be kept in an enormous safe beneath the Perrier Jouët cellars at Epernay for the next 100 years.
The buyer is of course free to choose the handover date, which doesn’t necessarily have to be 100 years time. A case to offer a family member, a protégé, a mentor…
The key is held by Hervé Deschamps, who is in charge of the label’s wine cellars and also the unique holder of the code to open the 100-year-old safe. We tried in vain to open it by listening to the clicks, but Mr. Deschamps finally whispered in our ears that instead of 4 combinations, it required more than 10, all intertwined… For those of you who will visit the cellar, it’s supposedly about the name of one of Napoleon’s sons who stayed at Perrier Jouët.
