Ruinart Blanc de Blancs Collection by Georgia Russell

By Brody Patterson


Updated on

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 the bottle. The multiple cuts represent the notches on the walls of the old chalk mines and allow for a fascinating interplay of light with the golden glow of the Chardonnay, Ruinart’s signature grape variety. The piece ultimately serves as a symbolic guardian of the bottle, as well as an ornament and greatly adds to this already exquisite champagne collection.
