The champagne House Perrier-Jouët, known for its refined craftsmanship and artistry since 1811, partners with National Gallery Singapore as the official champagne of the museum. The collaboration with National Gallery Singapore is an expression of Perrier-Jouët’s long engagement with the visual arts. Since its beginnings, it has continuously imbued the everyday with art.
The announcement was made during a special ‘The Art of Pairing’ luncheon held at AURA, which saw a seafood-cetric menu being paired with three distinctive Perrier-Jouët champagnes – namely the Grand Brut, the Belle Epoque and Blason Rosé. The four-course menu consisted of a refreshing tuna tartare for starters, and worked its way to richer dishes like a champagne risotto with curried scampi and Hokkaido scallops. The afternoon ended on a sweet note with strawberry, pistachio and chocolate profiteroles.
“As champagne House of Perrier-Jouët believes in preserving artistic heritage, we are very pleased to collaborate with National Gallery Singapore. Perrier-Jouët's Maison Belle Epoque in France has the largest private collection of Art Nouveau pieces in Europe. Similarly, the National Gallery Singapore houses a substantial modern Southeast Asian art collection. Through this collaboration with National Gallery Singapore, Perrier-Jouët extends in Singapore its long support for the visual arts,” says Mr Gaurav Sabharwal, Managing Director, Pernod Ricard Singapore.
