In the end, the Bertaux project was chosen because "the successive layers which let the bottle breathe evoke the phenomenon which we know well in Cognac and which we call "the angels’ share"" explains the CEO Patrick Sauvageot as quoted in the Sud Ouest newspaper. The artist presents her work "as a precious object". "It reflects my artistic concerns. I have used one of my two favorite materials, paper" she adds.
