Louis Roederer - Jeroboam 2002 by Cristal

















Louis Roederer has teamed up with product designer Philippe Di Méo to create a limited edition Jeroboam design for the cuvee Cristal 2002.

The clear glass bottle is encased in a beautiful lattice of 24-carat gold. Each 'medallion' bottle is 100% hand-crafted and takes four days to create by two master goldsmiths.

"When it came to designing this Cristal Jeroboam, all I could think of was the light of the wine protected in a clear bottle that was imposing due to its size. No shadows on the bottle, only reflections from a "sun". From this idea emerged that of a delicate lattice like a jewel against the skin. Medallion links encasing the surface of the glass to create a precious, unique setting for each movement", said Philippe Di Méo.

The Jeroboam 2002 by Cristal comes with a price tag of $26,000 and will be limited to just 400 units.
