It is known that French designer Philippe Starck had a lot of collaboration in recent times. The latest teamwork was with Louis Roederer on champagne. He did not only design the packaging and the bottle, but he’s been involved to work with Roederer’s cellar master Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon on the Brut Nature Champagne from the 2006 vintage. The result was an undosed champagne modeled after the river wines of the region.
The theme of the bottle of Brut Nature 2006 is really related to its contents,’ explains Philippe Starck on the design,‘and the contents were so potent that I decided to design a bottle that was stripped of any superfluous embellishment.’
Louis Roederer’s philosophy is shared by Philippe Starck: both are engaged in a quest for authenticity. Cuvee Brut Nature retails for around $90 a bottle.
