French designer Pierre Yovanovitch creates rosé bottle
French interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch is the latest in a growing number of designers to put their signature stamp on a rosé bottle design.
As reported by Wallpaper* magazine, the Nice-born designer has created his first bespoke wine bottle in collaboration with Provence estate Commanderie de Peyrassol.
Yovanovitch’s bottle houses the peachy pink La Bastide Peyrassol Côtes de Provence 2020.
The estate was founded by the Knights Templar in the 13th century and served as a resting place for pilgrims on their way to the Holy Land during the Middle Ages.
Yovanovitch’s inspiration for the bottle shape was a medieval tower in the centre of the vineyard
As reported by Wallpaper*, the bottle’s “elegant curves and conical top echo the shape of the tower”, while the burnt-orange capsule is inspired by the tower’s glazed tiles.
Embossed into the glass at the top of the bottle is the iconic cross of the Knights Templar, and beneath it an asymmetrical white label that tips its hat to Yovanovitch’s playful interior designs.
“The bottle design reflects the architecture of the Commanderie de Peyrassol estate and serves as a homage to the natural tones and colours of the South of France.
“Light and airy both in aesthetic and taste, this rosé emulates its origins, and my own hometown, of Provence,” Yovanovitch told Wallpaper*.
The grapes that go into the rosé were harvested by the phases of the moon. According to its makers, the pink is “bursting with all the sweetness of a red fruit at first sip and finishes off with a velvety lightness”.
