Founded all the way back in 1729, Ruinart is the oldest established Champagne house. Throughout its long history, the company has kept a close relationship to the arts, as when famed Czech artist Alphonse Mucha was asked to illustrate a poster for the champagne. More recently, the collaborator of choice is Scottish visual artist Georgia Russell, who has worked on the presentation for the Blanc de Blancs champagne. Inspired by brilliant white chalk pits of the House of Ruinart (which serve as cellars, as the chalk helps keep the temperature at 11 degrees Celsius), Russell created an equally immaculate white adornment for

Each of these sections prevents the liquid powdered enamel to flow into other melting chambers. The process of making the cloisons takes 50 hours of painstaking work to complete, during which the artisan uses more than 500mm of fine gold wire. The stunning Ulysse Nardin
