After their successful collaboration with Dom Pérignon to make the extraordinary La Malle Plénitude bespoke champagne trunk, the French manufacturer T.T.TRUNKS just unveiled another masterpiece. The impressive Millesime Trunk T512 is designed to preserve not only Champagnes but wine Grands Crus as well. There is no doubt this beautifully crafted piece is a conversation starter, its cobalt blue interiors make sure of that – who needs disco lights in the living room when you have a wine trunk with all that blue.
It takes at least 1050 manufacturing hours to create a single unit. At T.T.TRUNKS that group involves everyone from a creative director to engineers to master craftsmen. To get that bright glow, the interiors of Millesime Trunk T512 are padded in electric blue Dinamica microfiber. It also features black microfiber lining. Life is all a party with this techno trunk – it comes fitted with two Wi-Fi stereo speakers, covered by trans-sound fabric.
Inside, there is room for 20 bottles of wine and champagne – 10 in the refrigerated wine cellar and five each in the unrefrigerated drawers on each side of the wine cellar. If you are to take the portable trunk on a road trip or to one of rooftop, beach, park and yacht there is no need to worry about glasses, coasters, and accessories. Included are 16 white marine leather coasters, eight each of wine and champagne crystal glasses from Baccarat and wine tasting accessories.
The exceptional Millesime measures 140 x 65 x 65 cm, and thanks to polished brass wheels it is easy to move around. Outside, the trunk features grained cowhide black leather lining, edges in sleek leather lozines, nickeled polished jewelry parts and handles supported by a metal plaque. Overall, a strong hard shell to protect plush interiors and valuables it carries.
The temperature control technology in Millesime’s refrigerated cellar is developed to protect the taste and flavor of wines. It has a tasting tray that extends from the front – this in a way encourages water cooler talk or in this case wine cooler talk while tasting and learning about the wines.
You don’t need to haul the entire trunk around if it is a party of just two. The nifty Millesime comes with a leather-lined and nickeled polished brass covered removable suitcase that can store a bottle and a couple of glasses.
You may have noticed high-end luxury don’t come cheap. The beautiful Millesime Trunk T512 priced at €100,000 (about $105,000) now available to order from T.T.TRUNKS online store.
