(Relaxnews) – French champagne house Armand de Brignac has released what it is calling the world’s largest bottle of rosé bubbly that holds the equivalent of 40 regular 750 ml bottles.

Weighing 45 kg (100 lbs) and standing more than 1.2 meters tall (4 feet), the colossal, 30-liter Midas bottle will be uncorked December 13 at the Hakkasan Las Vegas restaurant at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, where it will be listed for $275,000.

The Midas bottle will be reproduced in limited numbers.

Under the direction of winemaker Jean-Jacques Cattier, Armand de Brignac is hand-produced by a staff of eight craftspeople at the family estate in Chigny-les-Roses, France. Grapes used are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The Cattier family have been wine producers since 1763.

The Armand de Brignac Rosé is described as a fresh, full-bodied bubbly with aromas of strawberries and blackcurrant and is produced in limited quantities.

This fall Dom Pérignon also garnered attention for enlisting contemporary American artist Jeff Koons to develop eye-catching packaging for its Rosé Vintage 2003. Adapted from his existing life-sized version of “The Balloon Venus,” Koons created smaller replicas of the metallic magenta art pieces to house bottles of the pink bubbly.
