An exceptional creation is the result of a unique alchemy of the rare and the sublime. 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 the perfect 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.
