Frédéric is standing in the newly restored dining room at Ruinart. According to Colin, the image has been put together to represent the monastic origins of Ruinart, which was founded by the nephew of Dom Thierry Ruinart, a Benedictine monk who lived from 1657-1709. This connection to the brand’s monastic past can be seen in the large light above Frédéric’s head, which represents a halo, while the cellarmaster’s hands are clasped, as though he is about to pray.
