Decorating a Champagne Bottle

Created in 1983, the Taittinger Collection combines the genius of modern artists and the art of champagne. The collection is a series of limited-edition champagne bottles encased in a shell specially created by an artist to pay tribute to this wine.

This years artist, decorating the bottle for the Taittinger Brut Millésimé 2000, a blend of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir, is the American painter Robert Rauschenberg, well-known for his “Combine” works that integrate the aspects of painting and sculpture.

    This bottle was created in 2007 and it is the 11th of the Taittinger Collection.

    As you may know, Robert Rauschenberg - one of the Pop Art Father - died in May 2009…

    Cheers!

    Sacha.
