Perrier-Jouet’s Enchanting Tree of champagne

Mar 27, 13 Perrier-Jouet’s Enchanting Tree of champagne

Posted by in Champagne

The Enchanting Tree lives up to it’s name, that’s for sure. The invitation promised an “enchanting champagne moment” and I have to say I was immediately charmed by the tree dripping with full champagne glasses as I walked into one of the darkened gallery rooms of the Saatchi Gallery. Set in the middle of the...
