Taittinger Collection Vintage 1983
For her design for the Taittinger Collection, she had fun placing the precious bottle for a split second behind one of those remarkable stained glass windows which she alone could imagine.
The spots of colour which landed on it remain fixed there for ever! However, they don’t just stay there in a static manner, they in fact rise in a stream of bubbles, thanks to da Silva’s conviction in her artwork.
Winemaking and Maturation
The bottle contains a Brut Millésimé 1983. Made from 40 % Chardonnay from the Grands Crus of the Côte des Blancs region, and from 60 % Pinot Noir from the Grands Crus of the Montagne de Reims.
After having celebrated the ‘year of the century’ in 1982, who could have anticipated that it would happen again as early as the year after? The vines enjoyed exceptional weather throughout the season, which resulted in a huge harvest of superb quality.
