This bottle and presentation box was designed by the artist Roy Lichtenstein for Taittinger.
The bottle contains a Brut Millésimé 1985, made from a combination of 60 % Pinot Noir and 40 % Chardonnay from the Grands Crus of the Côte des Blancs region.
After a period of painting in the style of Abstract Expressionism Roy Lichtenstein became one of the leading artists of the American Pop Art movement.
Invited by Taittinger to design the fifth bottle and box in their prestigious “Collection”, Lichtenstein’s creation was released in 1990.
In his design for the Taittinger Collection, Lichentstein remained faithful to his world inspired by comic book art and sought to create a visual shock by using dots and the careful choice of a few dominant colours: Van Gogh yellow, Royal blue and British Racing green.
