Pont des Arts has unveiled a new wine collection in honour of artist Piet Mondrian, consisting of three wines created in collaboration with three top wineries in France, namely Château La Conseillante in Bordeaux, Domaine de Montille in Burgundy and Pierre Péters in Champagne.
Pont des Arts, founded by Arthur de Villepin – son of former French prime minster Dominique de Villepin – and Thibault Pontallier – son of the late Château Margaux managing director Paul Pontalllier – was launched in 2010 to shine a light on fine wine and art.
The new collection celebrates the art of Piet Mondrian, one of Europe’s most prominent artists, known for his unique Neo-Plasticism style.
The three wines in the collection consist of a Château la Conseillante 2016, a Corton Grand Cru 2015 from Domaine de Montille and a Blanc de Blancs ‘Réserve Perpétuelle‘ from Pierre Péters.
The wines are sold in a case designed with the same Piet Mondrian’s 1930 composition – Red, Blue, Yellow featured on the bottle of Pomerol 2016 Château la Conseillante.
There are only 100 available worldwide.
Earlier, a 6L of Piet Mondrian painting-clad 2016 Château la Conseillante was exclusively auctioned live at Christie’s Hong Kong sales on May 25 (Only 5 produced worldwide) for HK$62,500, against a pre-sale estimate of HK$18,000-22,000.
