Champagne Duval-Leroy

This festive season, the Duval-Leroy Champagne House has teamed up with famous artist Céleste Mogador. This all-female collaboration brought together two talented women to create something of exception for an exceptional champagne. Together, the cellar master and the artist designed a chic, elegant brooch representing a mini-bottle of the "Femme de Champagne 2002" with the Duval-Leroy monogram, taking the champagne brand to the next level.

Duval-Leroy Femme de Champagne 2002: this is a bespoke champagne from the 2002 vintage, an outstanding year in terms of maturity throughout the Champagne region. Created from two flagship grape varieties grown in the family vineyards, Femme de Champagne 2002 is composed of 95% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Noir, endowing it with lovely light golden highlights.

Champagne Pol Roger

For the festive season, Pol Roger, "the most British of the Champagne Houses", offers us its must-have champagne presented in a special festive gift case, a unique creation evoking the paintings of Sir Winston Churchill.

Pol Roger Brut Reserve: this, the most iconic of the Pol Roger champagnes, is perfect for all drinking occasions. Its blend is constantly evolving to preserve the authenticity of the Pol Roger style. However, each year it contains around one third of each of Champagne's three main varietals: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. This is a fresh and energetic champagne best enjoyed as an aperitif or with starters.

Champagne de Sousa

Known for its quality products and respect for the planet, people and the environment, the De Sousa family is offering us an exceptional cuvée this festive season: Les Caudalies.

De Sousa Les Caudalies: crafted from 100% Chardonnay grapes from the Côte des Blancs, this champagne is the fruit of all this family's know-how and love of its terroir. For the crafting of this champagne, it selected 60+ year-old vines, worked according to very precise organic and biodynamic methods. 50% of the wine comes from the year's production and the other 50% from a permanent stock of reserve wines. Elegant and well-balanced, its aromas are exceptionally fine and interwoven with light notes of brioche. This superb, world-famous champagne can be offered as a gift or cracked open to celebrate the festive season in style.

This festive season, Moët & Chandon is unveiling a personalisation offer allowing purchasers to have the first name of their choice inscribed on one of two limited-edition gift boxes, available in gold or pink. The first contains the Moët Impérial, the Champagne House's iconic champagne, and the second contains the Moët Impérial Rosé.

Moët Impérial: this is the world's best-selling champagne, a true classic. It is a blend of over 200 crus, within which we find the three Champagne varietals (Pinot Noir 30-40%, Pinot Meunier 30-40% and Chardonnay 20-30%) each adding their own touch and complementing the wine's aromatic palette.

RSP: around 42€ (+3.50€ for the inscription)

Champagne Tsarine

This festive season, Champagne Tsarine is inviting itself onto our tables with a golden or red metal photophore with art-deco motifs. Equipped with an on/off switch, this photophore lights up and illuminates the bottle of Tsarine when served.

Champagne Ruinart

If you are on the hunt for a really special gift, this could be just what you are after! To celebrate the festive season in style, Ruinart invited British artist David Shrigley to design a limited-edition work to serve as a presentation for a Jeroboam of the Blanc de Blancs, the emblem of the Ruinart style. This is the first time an artist has worked directly on the iconic bottle. A functional object, the “box” is transformed into a champagne bucket when the champagne is served.

Ruinart Jéroboam Blanc de Blancs by David Shrigley : certainly Ruinart’s most celebrated cuvée, Ruinart’s Blanc de Blancs is a champagne of incredible elegance. It is primarily derived from premiers crus in the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. Perfect paired with fish.

RSP: around 3500 € (limited edition, only 30 pieces)

Champagne Laurent-Perrier

Laurent Perrier is adorning its great classic, the Champagne Rosé, in a lovely striped pink metal case for the festive season.

Laurent-Perrier Rosé Robe Zèbre : this rosé champagne has a flavour all of its own. It is one of the rare rosés produced using the technique referred to as "bleeding", in which the grapes impart the colour naturally. This champagne can be paired with a platter of charcuterie and will be the ideal partner for red fruit-based desserts.
