Tiffany Mimosa

Which wine was used to celebrate Duke Ellington’s 70th birthday?

It was the Perrier-Jouet “Flower Bottle” Champagne, a prestige cuvee bottling inlaid with enamel arabesques and white anemones. Originally designed by Emile Galle in 1902 to honor the Belle Epoque era, this Art Nouveau bottle was first reproduced in 1964 at the Alacazar restaurant in Paris, where guests gathered to honor the legendary jazz great.
