The special series of tasting sessions at our Central restaurant space brought together the best of Perrier-Jouët and expert knowledge for a truly priceless experience

Since 2014, Priceless Hong Kong by Mastercard has been instrumental in creating memorable moments and connecting consumers with unique discoveries in the cities in which they live. In 2021, that has never been more relevant as our lifestyles are now, more often than not, focused on what we can experience in our current locations. With a revitalised programme that aims to create exclusive moments that can enrich our horizons and bring us closer to our families and friends, Priceless Hong Kong has created new ways of enjoying life in the city.

On the evenings of 27 and 28 September, wine enthusiasts were treated to a special champagne tasting masterclass by Perrier-Jouët, with four premium cuvées to be tasted alongside an in-depth exploration of the maison’s history and progress. With only ten seats available each night, each champagne session was truly intimate and exclusive. Guests were immersed into a world of nature upon arrival, with the Tatler Dining Kitchen space transformed into a verdant indoor paradise resplendent with greenery and flowers. At the entrance, the Curiosity Cloud—a sparkling interactive art installation by Vienna-based design duo Misher’Traxler—welcomed guests into a world of whimsy as tiny manmade butterflies came to life, fluttering in their suspended lightbulbs. This dialogue between human and nature is a direct reference to the harmony that must exist between winemaker and their terroir, a concept that comes to life in the glass.

For the masterclass led by brand ambassador Isabelle Piffard, guests embarked on a journey through a flight of four Perrier-Jouët champagnes: Grand Brut, Blanc de Blancs, Blason Rosé and Belle Époque champagnes. In addition to the Sensory Experience column where guests could scan a QR code to find out more about each cuvée and take in a series of isolated scents connected to the notes of each champagne, a special selection of perfume vials were passed around to each guest to further enhance their olfactory experience of the champagnes.

As a surprise to guests, the final tasting glass was upgraded to a Belle Époque Rosé champagne, for a truly priceless experience.

Please enjoy responsibly.
