Laurent-Perrier, one of the finest champagne houses in the world has collaborated with Australian artist and illustrator Kerrie Hess to create a limited edition Cuvée Rosé Gift Box to celebrate its cherished Cuvée Rosé and the 50thanniversary of this iconic champagne.

Created in 1968, Cuvée Rosé was developed from the boldness and know-how of the House of Laurent-Perrier. Perfected at each stage of its making, Cuvée Rosé is acknowledged for its consistency and its high quality and is widely regarded as the benchmark of its category.

Kerrie’s illustration for the gift box was inspired by her time in Paris and captures the Parisian romance of enjoying Cuvee Rosé amongst the city’s most well known landmarks including the Eiffel Tower and The Pont Alexandre III Bridge. The pink water-coloured tones are inspired by the hues and sensory characteristics of the champagne.

Paul Stenmark from Laurent-Perrier says, “We are delighted to release this beautiful, limited edition gift box for Cuvée Rosé. The unique gift box is a celebration of the elegance and freshness of Cuvée Rosé. Kerrie’s style aligns perfectly with the origins of the brand and its subtle richness”.

Kerrie Hess says, “Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé has always been one of my favourite champagnes. I wanted to evoke the romance of Cuvée Rosé through the Parisian setting and soft rose coloured tones.  I also wanted to pay homage to the time fifty years ago when this champagne first launched with a slightly vintage feel; while still being fresh and modern. Just like the champagne itself.”

As part of the collaborative process Kerrie visited Maison Laurent-Perrier in Tours-sur-Marne, in the outer regions of Champagne where she toured the vineyards and cellars of Laurent-Perrier.

With only 500 units released nationally, the Kerrie Hess Limited Edition Cuvée Rosé Gift Box is sure to become a cherished collectors item for followers of Kerrie’s work and champagne connoisseurs alike.

Available from selected independent retailers nationally from September.
