Luxury Champagne house Perrier-Jouët have finally released their latest vintage, and it's a corker.

Fans of posh champagne rejoice - there's a new bottle in town, and its so exclusive only 200 of them have been released. Designed by Brazilian artist Vik Muniz, the Belle Époque Cuvée 2005 Rosé bottle features a golden hummingbird, along with Perrier-Jouet's classic anemone motif. When asked about his inspiration for the bottle, Muniz explained:

“Much as Perrier-Jouët has long embraced Art Nouveau's love of nature and enchantment, I took the idea of captivation in a natural setting as the inspiration for this motif”.


Aesthetics aside, the champagne itself tastes fantastically fruity with hints of candied orange, white peach and cocoa emerging from the combination of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes used.

This isn't your average celebration bottle however - Perrier Jouet Cellar Master Herve Deschamps has described it as the 'most extravagant wine of the Belle Epoque Collection'. It's only on sale in Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and at the newly opened Searcy's Champagne Bar on the 39th floor of the Gherkin, and will set you back a cool £248!
