This nearly $57,000 bottle of Champagne Perrier-Jouët just set a record


Before the auction, Tim Triptree, international director of Christie’s Wine & Spirits Department, said it was believed that no one other than Perrier-Jouët was in possession of any bottles of Champagne Brut Millésimé 1874. He explained several reasons. due to its merits: “It has spent almost 150 years in ideal conditions… It has no movement and cellar darkness, 11 to 14 degrees Celsius temperature and 98 percent relative humidity. , ideal for growing up” (via Food & Wine).

Perrier-Jouët famously created “brutal” Champagne, aka dry, in a time when most Champagnes so sweet (every Pair of grapes). What does this nearly 150-year-old Champagne taste like? Triptree says it will likely be flat rather than bubbly, but will likely retain its “vibrant acidity and freshness”. The color will mature” from pale lime green to golden amber, and it will also develop other complexities, changing from citrus and green apple notes commonly found in young champagne to mature palates. more of butter, caramel, and honey.” Another expert said Champagne will have aromas of incense, cognac, vanilla, tobacco, marmalade, and possibly chocolate.

The question is: What occasion deserves this 147-year-old treasure? Furthermore, its anonymous new owner will drink it Or keep it as an investment? We imagine that the longer it is intact, the more valuable it will be – but it would be a shame not to taste it.
