The iconic Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama, has teamed up with one of the best Champagne Houses to send the whole world a cheerful message with a unique, joyful and colorful creation specifically made for Veuve Clicquot.
Yayoi Kusama for Veuve Clicquot
The world famous artist, best known for her dots, has teamed up with Veuve Clicquot to design a special box and bottle for the La Grande Dame 2012 vintage as well as 100 limited numbered editions of a very special sculptural magnum for the House.
Kusama’s famous “dots” adorn the La Grande Dame 2012 box and bottle. The opulent flower symbolizes vital energy, love and celebration of life. The polka dots, Yayoi Kusama’s signature patterns, are reworked like champagne bubbles to embody La Grande Dame 2012.
More than 150 years separate Madame Clicquot and Yayoi Kusama, and yet it is almost as many common points that unite their unique and fascinating destinies.
From Yayoi Kusama’s work to Madame Clicquot’s development of the House of Veuve Clicquot, these two daring figures demonstrate strong and flawless commitment. And today, their destinies converge in an unparalleled collaboration.
YAYOI KUSAMA, “My Heart That Blooms in the Darkness of Night”
This opulent flower is an original creation that symbolizes vital energy, love and celebration of life. It is a tribute to nature, cherished as much by Madame Clicquot as Yayoi Kusama.
A flower that wraps La Grande Dame 2012 Magnum, with joy and vibrancy. Crafted from more than 250 hours of work, it is available in only 100 numbered pieces.

Previously in 2006, Yayoi Kusama had already played with her famous polka dots by revivifying the original portrait of Madame Clicquot for a charity auction in Tokyo.
So, the dialogue between the artist and the Maison has never stopped and has reached another milestone in its most inspiring and sharing ways.
92 Points, Roger Voss of Wine Enthusiast: “This is a vintage very much in the producer’s style. It is soft, with a dosage that gives baked-apple flavors as well as acidity. Both need to come together in this young wine. Its dosage will allow it to age well into a toasty old age.”
