Moët & Chandon introduces the Moët Nectar Impérial Rosé Leopard luxury limited edition in a 6-litre Methuselah size bottle – an outstanding statement for the House’s most indulgent champagne, Nectar Impérial Rosé. Created for enjoyment during exceptional and celebratory moments, Moet & Chandon chose the leopard camouflage pattern as an expression of this bold, energetic luxury rose demi-sec champagne, the most popular of its kind in the world. To achieve the striking leopard’s noble rosette effect, Moët & Chandon called upon the renowned French engravers Arthus-Bertrand to handcraft each of only 60 6-litre bottles with 22-carat gold leaves, giving the bottle a dazzling gold dimension. This luxury limited edition bottle, $5,000, will be available at Sherry-Lehmann Wine & Spirits in New York, shipping nationally, and at the most exclusive nightclubs nationwide starting December 1, 2013.
This Moët Nectar Impérial Rosé Leopard luxury limited edition will run you about $15k in the clubs. At least the money you spend on the bottle is not for nothing; with it being 22-carat leaves all over the bottle it’s almost like an investment. Hope anyone who spends 15K in the club is able to take it home, I know I would.
