Pont des Arts teams up with Chêne Bleu

“As part of its new collection using the artwork of Spanish artist, Miquel Barceló, Pont des Arts has created a Grenache rosé in collaboration with super-Rhone producer, Chêne Bleu.

“‘Bridging the gap’ between art and wine, Thibault Pontallier and Arthur de Villepin have launched a new collection in Hong Kong, with a London release to follow shortly after.

“The latest Pont des Arts range features the work of Miquel Barceló, a Spanish contemporary painter who has redesigned Pont des Arts’ logo on each of the seven wines which hail from Bordeaux and Burgundy, including Vosne-Romanée aux Reas, Chambolle-Musigny, Gevrey-Chambertin, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Meursault and Saint-Émilion.

“Pontallier and de Villepin have also teamed up with ‘super-Rhône’ producer, Chêne Bleu which is famed for its high quality, biodynamic reds, whites and rosés in the mountainous UNSECO (sic) heritage area Dentelles de Montmirail in the Southern Rhone.

“The latest collaborative release, a limited edition Vieilles Vignes ‘Réserve Spéciale’ 2015 rosé is in celebration of the winery’s 10th vintage.

“Made from 65-year-old Grenache vines with a touch of Syrah, the rosé has been released in 1,000 bottles and 480 magnums with Barcelo’s label artwork, Sin título, 2011, XI depicting a Spanish bull.”
