“This collection of bottles is a unique journey through time as Dom Pérignon has never before released such a complete assortment of vintages.”
Five never-before-seen ‘Malle Plénitude’ trunks, each including a collection of 23 meticulously chosen bottles of Dom Pérignon Vintage, P2 and P3 are going up to auction. Auctionata | Paddle8, the leading online destination for art and luxury collectibles, and Dom Pérignon, the world’s most prestigious champagne manufacturer, are collaborating to present their first joint auction named “La Malle Plénitude by Dom Pérignon”.
Encapsulating 37 years of Dom Pérignon‘s history, each ‘Malle Plénitude’ includes 23 champagne bottles filled between 1969 and 2006 and personally selected by Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon’s Chef de Cave.
Each assortment consists of ten bottles of Dom Pérignon Vintage, ten bottles of Dom Pérignon P2 and three bottles of Dom Pérignon P3, which were all released over the last 15 years.
“This collection of bottles is a unique journey through time as Dom Pérignon has never before released such a complete assortment of vintages. All bottles are handpicked from our cellar, where they have been stored under perfect conditions, guaranteeing the highest quality of the vintage. This is the first and probably the only time that such a complete selection will be released, and therefore, the ‘Malle Plénitude’ represents a unique opportunity to start or to complete an
outstanding Dom Pérignon collection,” explained Geoffroy.
The ‘Malle Plénitude’ will be produced in a strictly limited edition of six, of which five will be offered in this auction, while Dom Pérignon will retain a prototype. Moreover, all ‘Plénitude’ trunks will be fully made-to-order. Each buyer will be able to customize the design of his numbered trunk by choosing from a variety of finest leather types, interior linings and engravings.
The starting price for each trunk is €36,000, making it a one-of-a-kind present for the sophisticated connoisseur. Each trunk owner will also receive a personal invitation to visit to the winery’s historic abbey and cellar in Hautvillers, France, which is normally closed to the public.
This exclusive online auction will take place on December 10, 2016. The trunks will be offered to bidders through a livestream auction show featuring Dom Pérignon’s Chef de Cave Richard Geoffroy and Auctionata | Paddle8’s Chief Innovation Officer and auctioneer Alexander Gilkes.
