Twelve lucky people were recently treated to the world’s oldest champagne courtesy Perrier-Jouët. The famous champagne house offered a taste of the world’s oldest champagne certified by the Guinness Book of World Records. The lucky people were leading wine and champagne experts, and we are sure they were definitely not disappointed. Perrier-Jouët Vintage 1825 was one of 20 historic vintages at the tasting, organized to mark Perrier-Jouët Millesime 2002, the house’s first vintage of the 21st century. The delicious event was hosted by Perrier-Jouët Chef de Cave Hervé Deschamps and Head of the International Wine Department at Sotheby’s Serena Sutcliffe.
One of the vintages on offer was the exquisite the PJ 1874, the most expensive champagne at auction in 1885. We bet this tasting experience was like no other that these experts have ever been treated to. A classy evening, it will remain etched in the minds of the guests for years to come.
