The amazing cellar has 2000 square meters of monolithic construction which is surrounded by water and acts as a thermal steering wheel, providing the winery with a perfect environment to allow the wine to tolerate any temperature or season without being affected. Complementing the form, Starck and Arsène-Henry included well-arranged glass and metal pieces to improve the scenario, combining it with impressive lighting effects.

It would be extremely easy to make a flamboyant building to show how much genius, Luc Arsene-Henry and myself, but where would be the power of wine, the magic of wine? So we made a steel blade!” said Philippe Starck during the presentation. He continued saying: “It is a ship, carrying our wines to the four corners of the world”

“As a blade fallen from the sky in a superb copse of tall trees on either side, flanked by vine-covered slopes, the new cellar distributes the four levels of various wine-making and reception areas,” said Arsène-Henry.

Regarding the barrel cellar, Starck said “The wine’s home had to be evocative, a minimum, an institution, a reflection,” and Arsène-Henry concluded saying: “Above all, we wanted to make this cellar an efficient tool.”
