A series of tools that aim to save wines that are no longer good because of the development of sulfates. In collaboration with Isabelle Mauduit. Chemically, when the wine comes into contact with bronze, the copper content of the wine increases. If the taste isn't affected by the amount of copper, it's absence gives a possibility for sulfates to develop which spoil the taste. [How]

There is an old French tradition called « the last chance coin » where a copper coin is dropped into a wine that is no longer good because of sulfates development. The idea is to increase the amount of copper in the wine in an attempt to save it. However, if the wine is spoilt for a reason aside from the development of sulfates,it will not be saved by the coin.

Every bottle is different and many factors can affect the taste, the way it has been kept, how long it has been kept, how it was bottled… Dimitry and Isabelle embraced this randomness which is part of wine tasting traditions, it is precisely what makes good experiences so special. [Intention]

This project also aims to show the beauty of metal casting, embrace the unexpected outcome of the technique which gives every piece it’s unique specificities. [Process]
