If you’re an appreciator of art or like me, have a slight addiction to champers, you may have already heard about the limited edition bottle that has been created for the release of Dom Pérignon’s Vintage Rosé and Vintage 2004. The brand of vintage bubbly, produced by Champagne house Moët & Chandon and who had once worked with Andy Warhol in the past, has now teamed up with Pop Artist du jour, Jeff Koons – one of the most recognized and solicited contemporary artists out there, who has earned worldwide acclaim with his large-scale sculptures.
For the packaging, the artist chose to create a miniature replica of his fushia balloon Venus of Willendorf, that’s now on view at the Gagosian, which serves as an elaborate protective case for the bottle. If you happen to be privileged enough to get your hands on one of these beauties, you will not be disappointed with the taste of these two vintages, “To be honest, this particular vintage, specifically the vintage Rosé 2003, will remain historic. It’s about as bold, as provocative, as full bodied, intense and sensuous as can be.” claims Dom Pérignon’s Chef de cave Richard Geoffroy. The same actually rings true for Mr. Koons current show at the Gagaosian Gallery in NYC.
