Philippe Di Méo gives Louis Roederer the crown-jewel treatment

By Sarah Bochicchio

July 29, 2013

Louis Roederer has debuted its first limited-edition champagne bottle, the Jeroboam 2002 by Cristal, designed in collaboration with artist Philippe Di Méo.

The vintage champagne, called the “crown jewel” of Louis Roederer will be appropriately embraced in a 24-karat gold lattice. The gold, which was carefully handcrafted by master goldsmiths, embodies the elegance and luxury of the brand.

The vintage is rare due to the sporadically heavy rainfall of 2002. It is also a gem as recognized by the perfect score it received from Wine & Spirits.

Di Méo says of designing the Cristal Jeroboam, “All I could think of was the light of the wine protected in a clear bottle that was imposing due to its size. No shadows on the bottle, only reflections…from this idea emerged that of a delicate lattice-like jewel against the skin.”
