Limited-edition Art Piece celebrating the Maison’s Vintage 2009 champagne.
Tokujin Yoshioka is the latest artist — joining an elite class of creative personas, including the likes of Karl Lagerfeld and Jeff Koons — to pair alongside French champagne brand Dom Pérignon. Inspired by the energy and beauty of light, the acclaimed Japanese-bred designer expressed a poignant connection with the Vintage 2009s solar characteristics upon tasting and thought about fashioning an artistic theme around its merits.
Each bottle — handcrafted by esteemed glassware manufacturer Baccarat — is housed within a crystal art piece, titled “Prism,” consisting of three spectrums with beams of light radiating outward from its dark core.
When asked to comment on the piece, Tokujin Yoshioka had this to say:
“Light is the bridge between our shared aesthetic ideals and creative values. And as it happens, the notions of light, transparency and brilliance are especially relevant for Dom Pérignon Vintage 2009.”
Produced in a year of prodigious sunlight and heat, the 2009 vintage of Dom Pérignon is a luminous, solar champagne that resonates perfectly with the stunning beauty of light that characterizes Tokujin Yoshioka’s work. His creation revisits this exceptional Dom Pérignon vintage, evoking its radiant vibration to the eye and the palate, says Dom Pérignon Chef de Cave Richard Geoffroy: “The artistic affinity Tokujin shares with Dom Pérignon was evident to me from our first encounter. As we tasted the champagne, he instinctively expressed a strong connection with the solar character of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2009.”
The Dom Pérignon edition by Tokujin Yoshioka is available in a limited edition by special order. The artist has also created a reinterpretation of Dom Pérignon Rosé 2005.
Please drink responsibly.
