Designer Philippe Starck is adding another unique project to his impressive resume: he has partnered with French Champagne House Louis Roederer to create the Brut Nature 2006 cuvée. The French designer is known for his architectural and industrial design work, but we see a different aspect of his interests in this latest venture. Starck not only designed the strikingly minimal label and packaging of the Brut Nature 2006, but also took a keen interest in the production of the Champagne itself.
The Champagne has been inspired by river wines making it a medium-dry, terroir based vintage. The Champagne has a low sugar content, owing to Starck’s preference of zero dosage champagne’s and his desire to try something new. The Brut Nature 2006 is in keeping with Louis Roederer’s brand philosophy of simplicity and authenticity.
Roederer may be all about the simple things but the brand is a heavyweight in its own right. Their Cristal ‘Medalion’ Orfevres Limited Edition Brut Millesime Champagne made it to our list of most expensive Champagnes earlier in the year and they launched a $26,000 limited edition jeroboam in collaboration with Philippe di Meo just last year.
