Is there a prettier bottle than Perrier Jouet's Belle Epoque

by Jeff B » Sun Nov 18, 2012 9:15 pm

The cynical will say that it's irrelevant, it's what's inside that counts. That's true but what is your vote for the most beautiful wine bottle/label?

No 1 Family Estate Adel Cuvee Methode Traditionelle must go close. $NZ125, getting well into champagne price area. The white spots are Swarovski crystals.

Speaking about bottles, I just bought Huet´s 2009 Cuvée Constance. Who on earth has designed this hideous monstrosity? A pink paper ribbon!?

I disagree that it's what's inside that counts. Setting, music (which is part of the setting),food and the bottle all add to the experience of the liquid wine itself. I have to agree that the Adel Cuvee bottle is pretty gorgeous!
I just wanted to inform you that I find you to be very attractive. Thank you and have a nice day.

I believe that he was referring to the packaging and not the contents, Matt! :lol: I'll happily stare at any of those labels at our next shindig, though!

p.s. I vote for this label:

A few years ago I purchased two bottles of Meeker handprint merlot. Drank 1 and the other is resting in the cellar. It is a delicious merlot and we use the empty bottle as a candle holder.

Well, it's definitely not this! (Cornelissen's MAGMA.)

I love the label on Haut Brion. (And almost always, the wine inside.)
I also love the labels on Egon Muller and Willi Schaefer's bottles. Both very elegant and understated.

FX's Unendlich is also pretty cool, though in a very different way.

Also, I might be inclined to agree with tooch on how lovely the Overnoy labels look, but it'd be nice if I could actually see one in person (or in my cellar) a bit more often. :P
