We here at Wheelers Luxury Gifts would like to present a new Limited Edition bottle of Dom Pérignon. This 2006 vintage bottle is the 2016 Creator’s Edition; it was formed in partnership with the German artist, Michael Riedel. Riedel was mostly known for his affinity for transformation relating to the transformation of different wine over the years. He permutes and transfers existing materials creating something new.
Riedel transforms his creations by using restaging cultural events which include art exhibitions, concerts and film screenings; he then manipulates his materials using text, video, publishing and audio.
For the prestigious luxury champagne brand Dom Pérignon, Riedel chose to take the ‘D’ for Dom and ‘P’ for Pérignon to create a poetic optical metaphor for the passage of time. He layered up the two letters together with overlapping techniques across both the box and the bottle’s label.
The artist perfectly captures the harmonious energy and unique taste of the vintages of Dom Pérignon in this Limited Edition bottle.
Overall the weathe rin 2006 was dry and warm yet July was sweltering hot and August cooler but wet. The summery period in September made the vintage possible; this was good for drying out the last few patches of botrytis and maturing the grapes far more than usual. The harvest began on September 11 and lasted nearly four weeks.
The champagne was made in France and is 50% chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir, and has a cork closure which conceals all the flavour inside.
Nose – You get an immediate impression which is of mild, pure, airy bouquet. A floral and fruity pastel tone then unfolds and quickly darkens into the candied fruit, toasted notes and ripe hay along with small hints of liquorice.
Palate – The wine’s opulence- contained and succulent, round at heart and reveals itself when in the mouth. The wine becomes more complex and edgy, silkier than it is creamy. The champagne eventually melts into a delicate bitter taste which has a tinge of the sea on your taste buds.
This beautifully balanced champagne would make the perfect gift for any sparkling wine lover or collector; for a collector they would cherish this Limited Edition artist bottle.
We offer an additional engraving service to engrave onto the bottle adding an extra personal touch to the champagne whether you decide you want a message engraved onto the bottle itself or a plaque to be engraved for the presentation box. Our engravers will work around the clock to ensure you are very happy with the end result.
