Champagne maker Perrier Jouët has updated its classic Belle Epoque bottle for the first time in more than a century, launching the new design in Tokyo earlier this month. They commissioned Japanese artist Makoto Azuma to reinvent the signature floral motif first created by Emile Gallé in 1902.

Perrier-Jouet Redesigns Their Champagne Bottle For The First Time In Over 100 Years

The limited edition bottles of Belle Epoque Florale Edition 2004 vintage, are described as a “reverential homage” to Gallé’s original Art Nouveau design, which was inspired by Japanese art. They will be available worldwide in September at a price of €300. Makoto said:

I wanted to make something extraordinary, taking inspiration from the sensation of champagne inside the mouth, and the delicate movement of the ivy and leaves with a special attention and tribute given to Emile Gallé’s anemones.
