We managed to get our hands on 120 bottles each of the newly released 2004 Dom Perignon Jeff Koons Limited Edition and 2003 Dom Perignon Rose Jeff Koons Limited Edition, both at cheapest price in town! These will surely go much higher in value (given Jeff Koons’ already cult-like status in the art world and underlying excellent quality of the Dom Perignon Champagne).

 Dom Perignon by Jeff Koons” is a very special collaboration between Dom Perignon and American artist Jeff Koons, one of the most influential contemporary artists who is well known for his reproductions of banal objects – such as balloon animals produced in stainless steel with mirror-finish surfaces. His works have sold for huge sums of money, including the “Balloon Dog” which sold at Christies NY for USD 58.4 million! on Nov 12, 2013 (becoming the most expensive work sold at auction by a living artist).

 

These LIMITED EDITION Dom Perignon bottles, each in its specially designed individual gift box, is an extension of the Balloon Venus project – a curvilinear sculpture created by Jeff Koons for Dom Perignon that opens to reveal a bottle of Perignon Perignon Rose 2003. Only 650 pieces were made, and were allocated only to VIPs at USD 20,000 each – a bargain by Koons’ standards.

 

“The gift box was designed by Jeff Koons himself, for both Dom Perignon Vintage 2004 and Dom Perignon Rose Vintage 2003, with a careful all-embracing conception of the outside and the inside facets. The outside reproduces on a dark background the Balloon Venus for Dom Perignon matching their colour with the cuvee: pink for the Rose and yellow for the Blanc. A view of the artist’s studio is visible on the reflective surface of the Balloon Venus and refers to the creative energy of the artist. The image is underlined by Jeff Koons’ signature.

 

Similar to the boxes, the bottle foils give a pop-twist to the colour of its cuvee, Dom Perignon Blanc or Rose, interpreting the tension between the colours and the dark bottle. It bears a metallic shield with the same colour layout as the foil and the box. The label plays with coloured surface on the depth of shield, emphasizing its allure, playful and still mysterious”

We got our hands on a very nice parcel of Chapoutier Ermitage – all purchased on release and stored under ideal conditions. With minimum 10 years aging, these are drinking perfectly right now. Well-stored, well-priced, ultra high Parker scores, and ready for immediate delivery. What more can you ask for?

 

Chapoutier produces wine from a range of appellations in Northern and Southern Rhone. They are most famous for their Ermitage, which is consistently one of the most highly praised wines by Robert Parker. Take a guess on how many 100 pointers they got… a mind-boggling 24 wines!!! (Only Guigal has more, sitting at the top with 25). The next contender only has 12…Petrus w/ 9, Haut Brion w/ 6, Latour w/ 5, DRC w/ 4, and Lafite w/ 3…

 

These are rich, fruit forward, intense wines with tremendous character. Loads of blackberries, tobacco, liquorice notes. With age they develop unbelievable complexity, richness and depth.

 

Chapoutier Ermitage “Le Meal”

Made with 100% Syrah grapes from a single vineyard site “Meal hillside”. The slope is composed of high terraces of shingles and clay which helps contribute to soil warming. Vine age at around 50 years old. Deep garnet red colour with purple rims. Ripe fruits, hints of blackberry jam, smoky with powerful tannins.

 

Chapoutier Ermitage “l’Ermite”

Made with 100% Syrah grapes from a single vineyard site situated at the top of the Hermitage hill in a place named “the Ermite”. The vines are 80 years old and are on very poor, granitic soils. Colour is very deep garnet red, almost black. Juicy black fruits, smoky, pepper with a powerful yet velvety structure.

 

Chapoutier Ermitage “Le Pavillon”

Chapoutier’s top wine. Made with 100% Syrah grapes from a single vineyard site that has 90-100 year old vines. The soil has sediments on top of a granitic subsoil. Very low yields due to the vine age. Tarry and smoky, raspberry, blackberry, walnut, liquorice, tobacco. Intense, concentrated with a finish that lasts for minutes.

 

Chapoutier Ermitage Blanc “Le Meal”

Consistently one of the top white wine made in the Rhone Valley. Made with 100% Marsanne grapes, from the single vineyard site “Le Meal”. The vines are more than 50 years old which gives very low yield. Golden yellow color. Tropical fruit, toasty almond, honey notes, all wrapped in a round, oily texture.
