It’s official! Christmas is upon us! And we couldn’t be happier. We know, we all moan about the stress, the cost, the long queues, but honestly, it really is the most wonderful time of the year! For a start it gives us a good reason to pop open a bottle of champers and we’ve found what we think is going to be this years best seller from Virginie Taittinger which features the most innovative design yet!
As our regular readers will know we love a good back story and the Taittinger family have a long history in Champagne, spanning 160 years.
Virginie is continuing the family tradition, having spent over 20 years by her fathers side where she acquired the unique and varied set of skills to carry on the family legacy, while putting her own unique stamp on the family brand. In her own words,
“ I always aim for each of my cuvee to give an unforgettable festive emotion that will surprise and excite your senses”*
The Grande Cuvée 6 ans d’âge comes in a luxurious Red & Black packaging and is the first of the collection of Champagnes from VIRGINIE T dedicated to special cuvées with prolonged ageing, combining the best Grands Crus from the 2008 harvest, an outstanding vintage, and 15% of reserve cuvée from the 2007 harvest resulting in a champagne that is aged for 6 years to achieve elegance and equilibrium.
All sounds and looks great so far! But what we’ve really fallen in love with is the innovative design of the box which turns into its very own ice box! What could be more perfect?! And, when you’ve finished, both bottle and box can be simply placed in the recycling making it totally mess free.
