When it comes to the beauty of bubbly, n othing beats an eye-catching label - from spectacular limited editions designed by fine artists, to more traditional designs that are subtle yet captivating.
Here are just a few Methodé Cap Classique bottles that evoke the conceptual exploration of artistic creation - that powerful bolt of insight that seems to come from a void.
Moët & Chandon Ice Impérial
Fairly new to the bubbly scene, Ice Impérial comes packaged in a sleek and stunning white and gold bottle with its contents specifically formulated to be consumed over ice. Whilst staring at a row of playful and premium Ice Impérial bottles, there's a realization that they look like penguins, who are of course ice experts. This is perfect for the summer but do bubbles really have a season?
Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé
The beautiful floral-embossed Belle bottle is one of the most recognizable packages in the world of bubbles. This luminous and enchanting work was designed by Brazilian artist Vik Muniz, and shows a brilliant image of a golden hummingbird flying beside delicate white Japanese anemone flowers that have graced every Belle bottle for more than a hundred years. The pink colours match the bubbly, which also features in green and gold bottles for different styles.
Armand de Brignac Brut Gold
Also known as Ace of Spades, Armand de Brignac was made famous by Jay-Z, after he boycotted Cristal when Roederer’s MD, Frédéric Rouzaud, made a *careless (read *racist) comment. The opaque gold metal gives Armand de Brignac a striking image, engraved with it’s iconic Ace of Spades logo. Beyond its luxurious gold plated facade, pewter label, jaw-dropping price tag and connections to the Hip Hop world at large, what truly sets Armand de Brignac apart is that it is produced by winemaked Jean-Jacque Cattier.
Ruinart Blanc de Blancs
A signature of the world’s oldest champagne house, this chardonnay is the very soul of Ruinart. Blanc de Blancs is a term used to describe bubbly that is made entirely from Chardonnay grapes.The bottle has a distinctive round shape and beautiful pale golden colour. The clear bottle makes for elegant presentation but it also makes the champagne susceptible to deterioration via ultraviolet light so make sure it stays in the box until opened.
The Nocturne, as you may have guessed by it’s disco packaging is a party bubbly. It is a special edition bottle in purple glittering squares that certainly begins looking like a disco ball after several glasses of bubbly. Quite a bit brighter than the others here, this bubbly bottle certainly stands out from the crowd with it’s dazzling purple coat. It is built to be easily and happily consumed in groups to round out an evening in style.
