Studio Job were introduced to Château d’Yquem through an important Antwerp-based collector and entrepreneur, Serge Hannecart. After seeing the beautiful bottles in his collection, dating back to 1700s, Studio Job had an idea to make a wine bottle holder, cast in bronze. The Yquem wine, which they picked for this project, was the Millésime 1969. The year was average in terms of quantity of total harvest, of which only 75% is eligible for the label. The wine is described as “very creamy and lemony, more like a Barsac than a Sauternes.” Like all Yquem wines, it has an aromatic complexity: “a slightly smoke nose, with a touch of petrol coming later.” As well as the holder, this wine also comes in a cooling box.
