Reflet XL Château Latour
Ever since the 1920's, precious woods have been one of Boucheron's materials of choice. In 2010, an exceptional kind of wood inspired the Boucheron workshops to create an innovative and precious timepiece: the two century old oak in which Château Latour's great 2005 vintage and 1st classified great wine of Pauillac, was carefully aged.
This wood is much more than just a material: the myth of one of the world's finest vintage wines is embodied in this new version of the Reflet XL watch. In a strictly limited edition of 100 pieces, this true collector's item can be savoured with the utmost delight.
The value of an objet-d'art is a subtle alchemy of passion, know-how and a striking story - what lovers of fine items call its soul.
During the maturation process of Latour's Grand Cru, one of the key moments is when the wine acquires its finishing traits, revealing the complexity of its flavours, within barrels made of carefully selected oak.
The intimate and mysterious union of wine and wood operates in the silence and darkness of the ancestral wine cellar in a “perfect exchange”. The wood slowly impregnates, absorbing a small amount of wine – charmingly known as “the Angel's share”.
