Metamorphosis, the promise of a Renaissance – Chapter II
The Power of Creation has moved the audacious creator Iris van Herpen, Dutch fashion designer and creative force.
For the occasion, van Herpen has playfully interpreted the concept of metamorphosis as embodied by the iconic champagne. She has designed a mesmerizing über-premium creation called ‘Cocoonase’, inspired by the importance of time in crafting Dom Pérignon. The Metamorphosis by Iris van Herpen is surprisingly alive, an act of energy.
A bottle of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2004 lays horizontally in the ‘Cocoonase’, taking its place as if it has been growing there for centuries, yet at the same time projecting itself into the future and its next transformation.

Each vintage is an act of creation by its Chef de Cave.[/pullquote]The disappearance of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2004 must be celebrated, as it foretells a rebirth in the form of its Second Plénitude as P2-2004, following several extra years of elaboration in the cellars. To exalt Vintage 2004’s metamorphosis, Dom Pérignon has evoked anew its Power of Creation.
