And once again, it is packaged with the traditional Champagne Saber.
Last year, the companies' ceremonial Saber (a sword used to expel the cork in a masterful gesture) with a steel blade and leather handle was designed by Jouin, as well as the Cordon Rouge leather carrying case and the Georges' Champagne bucket, all shown below.
