Whether it’s through literature, music, sculpture or painting, for centuries creativity and wine have been intrinsically linked:
Artists have sought inspiration by drinking the wine, and bottles of wine have been created unique, beautiful and refined just like a painting that defies time.
We wanted to reflect these empirical relationships between art and wine on our Bourgogne Chardonnay Les Croix Blanches bottle, thus we began representing an artist on the bottle’s label every year.
▶ In 2020 we changed our label for the first time to share the work created by artist Peter Denier. Thank you Peter, for honoring our bottle (2018 vintage) with a joyful sensuality and a unique charm. We quote your words "wine is the joy of living".
▶ En 2021 it is the work of the artist
Nathalie Razavet “La Vouge” that will celebrate our Bourgogne Chardonnay vintage 2019. Thank you Nathalie for representing Burgundy, in particular the Vouge River in such finesse and beauty
