Dom Perignon links with artist Michael Riedel
Dom Perignon has teamed up with German artist Michael Riedel to celebrate the power of transformation for its Blanc 2006 and Rose 2004.
Dom Perignon’s Chef de Cave, Richard Geoffrey, believes that each vintage undergoes three peaks of maturity, or ‘plenitudes’, and in between the years between these peaks, when the bottles are ageing on their lees, the wine is undergoing a gradual transformation and metamorphosis.
Similarly, Riedel explores the subject of transformation in his artworks. With this particular collaboration he has taken the ‘D’ and the ‘P’ in the Maison’s name, and created what he refers to as a “poetic optical metaphor for the passage of time”, via a complex layering of the two letters across both the box and the bottle labels.
The limited edition bottle and coffret by Michael Riedel will be priced at £155 for the Blanc 2006 and £345 for the Rose 2004. The wines will be available from leading specialists such as Selfridges, Harrods, Hedonism and Jeroboams.
Dom Perignon has a history of investing in creative projects, with previous collaborations including Bjork, Chris Cunningham, Jeff Koons, David Lynch, Karl Lagerfeld and Iris Van Herpen.
