Sauternes is a French sweet wine that originates from the Sauternais region of the Graves section in Bordeaux. Made using Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and the noble rot of Muscadelle Grapes, the wine is notable for its distinctive flavor. Sauternes Wine from the Premier Cru Supérieur estate are typically very expensive, due to the high cost of production.

The Barsac Vins Blancs au Monde poster illustrated by Robert Falcucci encompasses all things luxury, going hand and hand with the opulence associated with the Sauternes brand. The poster with its deep red background features an elegant white-gloved hand raising a sheer glass of the sweet wine in the center of the image. The glass, adorned in a Bicorne hat famously worn by Napolean Bonaparte, represents France’s pride in their superb wines. The bottom text of the poster reads "Vins Blancs Uniques Au Monde" (White Wine Unique in the World).

Robert Falcucci (1900 – 1988) was a French illustrator best known for his Monaco Grand Prix posters from 1930. Falcucci worked for the Renault car company from 1923- 1927 where he directed many advertising pages for Renault. Throughout his career, Falcucci was known for illustrating many automotive and travel posters. Falcucci’s style defines the figure in the poster using bright lines on a dark background, which works to accentuate the vibrance of colors. Falcucci’s work has appeared in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
