In the run up to Christmas, it’s always fun to see the innovative manner in which the champagne houses present us with new and exciting products.
Today it’s the turn of the house of Veuve Cliquot to come under the spotlight, with two new products available.
Veuve Clicquot en Ballade avec Suits Me
Inspired surely by a combination of modern city gent and the memory of bygone times when a less frenetic atmosphere reigned.
In the bright orangey yellow that’s the signature of this champagne house, this is a clever method of both transporting any size bottle of Veuve Clicquot Champagne as well as keeping it at the perfect drinking temperature for up to two hours.
Retailing at around €50 euros, the Veuve Clicquot en Ballade avec Suits Me certainly adds a stylish alternative to a regular carry box.
Veuve Clicquot Millésimée 2004 La Grande Dame
The house has also recently unveiled the new Millésimée 2004 La Grande Dame, presented in an entirely new packaging – Le Coffret Reveal – in a deep black.
La Grande Dame was first created in 1972 to celebrate the bicentenary of Veuve Clicquot, and was so named after Madame Barbe Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin.
