Update: After surfacing last year, Daniel Arsham and Moët & Chandon have officially unearthed their striking collaboration. In celebration of Collection Impériale Création No. 1, Moët & Chandon enlisted Arsham to translate the essence of the champagne into a work of art, crafting the limited-edition packaging for the bottle.

First unveiled at the House’s cellars in Épernay, France, Arsham’s take on the bottle draws inspired from a stained-glass panel housed in one of the cellars since the 1890s. Limited to just 85 bottles, Arsham’s pieces serve as a “collectible chest” for Collection Impériale – lasting long after the bottle is empty of its champagne.

While Arsham’s eroded edition of the cuvée stands out as the collaboration focal point, Moët & Chandon’s Collection Impériale Création No. 1 carries the same elegance into its taste profile. Sweet yet smokey, the champagne encapsulates a complex profile – what the House calls “reminiscent of a canary diamond” – infused with aromatic hints of licorice root, fresh hazelnut, vanilla and dried fig.

Take a closer look in the gallery above and cop one of Daniel Arsham’s limited-edition bottles for yourself now at Moët & Chandon’s official webstore.


Original Story: Moët & Chandon is celebrating its 280th anniversary with new cuvée, the Collection Impériale Création No. 1. This is the inaugural release of the Collection Impériale line, amultilayered champagne, to mark the occasion. The cuvée is a blend of seven remarkable vintages.

The latest expression is a product of the Maison’s centuries-old savoir-faire and arrives just as the house unveils a new Création every two years as a countdown to the label’s 300th anniversary. Adding to the portfolio, the new bottle deepens the Collection Impériale all while saluting to the future.

In addition to the new cuvée, Moët & Chandon has collaborated with contemporary American artist Daniel Arsham. The artist created an avant-garde masterpiece and collectible limited editions to accompany the launch. Arsham drew inspiration from the Maison, creating only 85 limited-edition bottles as a three-dimensional time capsue that serves as the packaging for the Collection Impériale Création No. 1. the limited edition bottles encapsulate the Moët & Chandon legacy, indefinitely living as permanent fixtures in the cellars of the house.
