Description

OTHER – Senegalese artist Amadou Sow has created the latest limited edition bottle for the Taittinger Collection Champagne range, to house the 2002 vintage. The 12th in the series of bespoke bottles, Sow is the first African artist to be commissioned by the Champagne house. Amadou Sow’s bottle is 12th in the series. Sow describes the universe as being at the heart of the artist’s mission, and he aims to convey a message through his paintings. Sow has named his Collection “Cosmic Pearls” and it depicts evening in Africa with vibrant colours on a black backdrop reflecting the star-studded sky, the universe and beyond. His colourful bottle design is also reminiscent of Champagne bubbles. Champagne Taittinger Brut 2002 is a blend of 50% Chardonnay from the “Grands Crus” of the Côte des Blancs and 50% Pinot Noir from the “Grands Crus” of the Montagne de Reims and the start of the Vallée de la Marne. The Collection Series was the brainchild of Claude Taittinger who approached the Hungarian artist Victor Vasarely in 1983 with a view to commissioning the artist to make a distinctive look for a small number of vintage 1978 bottles. So successful was the execution, and so popular the concept, that Taittinger has continued to handpick artists to commemorate their special vintages. From the 2002 vintage this ‘collection’ was designed by African artist Amadou Sow. The wine is a splendid golden straw colour. The very fine bubbles rise in numerous strings which spread out to form a fine, persistent necklace. The nose presents a slightly mineral aroma preceding an intense and delicate fruitiness. The aromas are of sweet citrus fruits such as clementines associated with subtle suggestions of tea, menthol and liquorice. The first impression on the palate is strong then quickly full. The mid-palate is rich, well-round ed and supple with a wide range of fruity and cakey flavours including fresh apricot and brioche. The finish is long and complex. In conclusion, Collection Sow 2002
