Taittinger Collection Champagne Millesime 1982: Painter and graphic artist André Masson (1896–1987) contributed the art for the 1982 Collection Series bottle. Masson’s work reflects an early interest in Cubism and a long association with Surrealism, which introduced him to the irrational in art. He is famous for using an automatic script, a sort of handwriting of the subconscious, to create powerfully affecting drawings, including pictures made from glue and colored sand. He is celebrated in the United States for inspiring Abstract Expressionism.
The Taittinger Collection Series bottles are released only in great vintages from a selection of the year’s finest cuvées.
