Courvoisier Erte Collection - Cognac Review

Liquid Masterpiece

Each Courvoisier Erté Cognac Collection is a liquid masterpiece

Here’s a lineup that’s as much art as it is delicious. With fewer than seventeen complete sets available worldwide, each Erté Cognac Collection is a liquid masterpiece and a rare one at that. The collection’s seven 750 ml bottles all contain a rare blend of Courvoisier’s Grande Champagne cognacs, the oldest cognac dating back to 1892. The famous Art Deco artist, Erté, designed all seven bottles and labels during the 1980s, with each vessel expressing a different step of the cognac-making process: “Vine,” “Harvest,” “Distillation,” “Aging,” “Tasting,” “The Spirit of Cognac” and “The Angel’s Share.” Along with the eight remaining sets available in the United States are a limited number of individual bottles.

Price: $1,450 (bottle) / $10,000 (collection)
