A Celebration of Good Taste

To mark its 40th year, Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut, the renowned rosé Champagne, collaborated with Baccarat to create a decorative dual-purpose crystal ice bucket that also serves as a vase. The stylish ice bucket ($1,400 with a bottle of Cuvée Rosé Brut) was inspired by an original 1933 Baccarat design and decorated with a branch of pink cherry blossoms across the crystal vessel and gift box, which echoes the Champagne’s distinctive 17th-century bottle design. A limited edition of 250 Laurent-Perrier Baccarat vases have been created and are available now exclusively at Fox and Obel in Chicago, and will be available through select retailers this fall.
