    Beautiful Era Champagne Gift Basket

    Belle Epoque is French for “Beautiful Era.”  It was a period of Western European history that began towards the end of the Franco-Prussian War in 1871 and ended around the outbreak of World War I. This was the era of the French Third Republic and characterized by regional peace, optimism, and cultural innovations. It received its name after it became, in retrospect, a “golden age” in comparison to the horrors World War I was causing. The Beautiful Era Champagne Gift Basket is a wonderful engagement, new house, job promotion, or thank you gift for all alike!

    Our Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque Gift Basket is the best of the best. The hand-painted glass bottle has matching hand-painted crystal champagne flutes, which are almost just as valuable as the champagne itself. We’ve set these stunning items in a luxurious wooden trunk. Chocolate covered pretzels, nuts, and gourmet chocolates fill the voids in the basked, making it the ultimate upscale present.

    Since they started in 1918, Perrier Jouet has continued its quest for a creative spirit and perfection. The rarity and quality of their products has been guaranteed since 1958, including a cork with the year of the vintage and approval seal. The hand-painted bottles of Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque were designed by Emile Gallé who was a huge part of the art nouveau movement in 1902. The flowers are Japanese anemones.

    A mixture of chardonnays, pinot noirs, and pinots meuniers make up the blend of Belle Epoque.  Temperatures in April in the vineyard felt like those of summer and the beginning of summer had a rainy start with cooler temperatures for that time of year. Luckily, a strong sun in August brought the grapes to full maturity. The grapes received an early harvest and let to a generous vintage. Once the fermentation process is complete, the liquid is aged over six years in Perrier-Jouët’s cellars. Master Blender Hervé Deschamps emphasized this cuvées unique character.
