forceMAJEURE collaborated with Penfolds and Europe’s most respected French glassmaker Saint-Louis to create a distinctive service vessel to hold the 2012 Grange Imperial and a limited edition crystal decanter for the 2013 Grange 750ml. The exceptional results and positive impact led Penfolds to mandate forceMAJEURE to create a second edition of the decanter to accompany the 2013 Grange 750ml release.
For the second iteration of the Penfolds and Saint-Louis collaboration, forceMAJEURE designed a sculptured crystal decanter to enhance the decanting process and the enjoyment of a Penfolds wine. The decanter releases the aromas and flavours of the wine through aeration and delivers an unforgettable experience and sense of occasion.
The slow-moving, controlled and secure turning motion gently aerates the wine while the handcrafted piece, featuring a flowing band of incised crystal around the decanter, allows an uninterrupted view of the depth of color and consistency of the liquid inside.
