Pont Des Arts Champagne Privee 2018 by Pierre Peters


PONT DES ARTS is proud to introduce its two special cuvées of very limited edition Grand Cru Champagne Blanc de Blancs, made in collaboration with the famous Champagne grower-producer Pierre Péters & the world-renowned artist Miquel Barceló.

The Pierre Péters estate, situated in the heart of the “Côte des Blancs”, has been a family house for six generations and has produced Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagnes since 1919. For nearly a century, successive generations have succeeded in evolving their vineyards and winemaking tools to become nowadays one of the most renowned harvesters in the world.

THE CHAMPAGNE: This Réserve Privée Blanc de Blancs consists exclusively of Chardonnay from Grand Cru villages in the heart of the Côte des Blancs subregion of Champagne. Limpid golden in colour with hints of green, this adorable Champagne has an irresistibly floral nose, effusing notes of citrus fruits, almond and fresh white bread, effortlessly combining freshness and finesse. Offering a persistent stream of fine mousse, the palate develops from white flower and white fruits to mandarin, pomelo, nuts and pastry. The creamy and supple palate is balanced by minerality, leading to further complexity and elegance.

Serving temperature: 8 to 10°C. Drink now to 15 years

THE ART: Miquel Barceló, Untitled – 2011, XI

Mixed media on canvas – 190 x 240 cm

A native of Majorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands in the western Mediterranean, Miquel Barceló grew up surrounded by maritime landscape, which in turned became one of his favourite motifs. The gigantic octopus, the archetypal sea monster lurking beneath the unknown azure threatening ships and men for centuries, is rendered yet more realistic and convincing by Miquel Barceló’s artistic virtuosity. With his contemporary use of mixed media, the textured flesh and blushed spots of the octopus are almost as sculptural as a relief. The octopus is the metaphor for being manipulative. Whether or not he likes it, Miquel Barceló has truly mastered the craft of applying contemporary mixed media to depict ancient themes.

Varietals: Chardonnay
