Lavish Libellule: A $100,000 artistic fusion of champagne and craftsmanship from the collaboration between Maison Perrier-Jouët and French embroiderer Atelier Montex, limited to only 10 bottles.


Champagne, art, and nature – what’s not to like in this unbeatable combination? Maison Perrier-Jouët has mastered the art most can only dream of for over two centuries. Perrier-Jouët has joined hands with the prestigious French embroiderer, Atelier Montex, to create Libellule, a beautifully adorned edition of its Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque 2008. This edition is a striking part of the Perrier-Jouët Objets Extraordinaires Collection, a motley of exceptional objects crafted from the finest materials by the most skillful artisans, showcasing an unmatched savoir-faire that complements the House’s rare and precious Belle Époque vintage cuvées.


It doesn’t take a connoisseur to admire the majesty of the intricate Jeroboam bottle of Belle Époque 2008. It’s sheathed in a mystical, almost enigmatic network of metalwork and embroidery, which, upon closer inspection, reveals a pair of dragonfly wings. The intricate work posed a challenge even for a seasoned genius like Atelier Montex. Artistic Director Aska Yamashita called upon the expertise of Montex partner Studio MTX, a specialist in architectural embroidery, to perfect a delicate yet complex structure. The process involved several stages, including 3D printing, galvanizing with nickel, plating with 24-carat gold, and finally, meticulously hand-painting the masterpiece with the green of nature.

Jewel tones, inspired by the stained-glass windows of the Maison Belle Epoque, were converted into an exquisite design featuring insects and flowers, all emblematic of the Art Nouveau movement. No less than a year of research and development, along with the tireless work of a single Atelier Montex artisan who devoted 75 hours of craftsmanship, resulted in the dazzling Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque 2008.
