Gifts for the Champagne Lover… Golden Girl
Finding the right gift for a champagne lover can be daunting. Going for gold (or yellow or pink for that matter) will always be a hit. From the perfect champagne bottle to a delicate perfume, we’ll give you a head start to help find the lady in your life the perfect present. Two words to start you off: elegant sparkle.
A dash of pink
What better to give a champagne lover than Dom Pérignon Rosé 2005? The elegant black and bright pink packaging adds a touch of exciting mystery to the unwrapping. Dom Pérignon’s 25th vintage is energetic and precise, revealing the richness of pinot noir.
A delicate, rose gold necklace from the Rose des Vents collection imagined by Victoire de Castellane for Dior. Inspired by Monsieur Dior’s lucky charm, the compass rose turns into a beautiful star that twists and turns with the wearer’s movements.
The subtle fruity aromas of Ruinart Rosé will remind her of a garden in full bloom, when the cherries and red berries are at their ripest. She’ll want to crack it open straight away just to remind herself of those warm summer days.
Because she will always be a ‘Grande Dame’ (a great lady, that is). La Grande Dame was created to celebrate Veuve Clicquot’s 200th anniversary. The 2006 vintage is a true expression of the house style, with its golden, almost copper glints and its chalky minerality.
Irresistibly captivating, Marc Jacobs’ iconic fragrance ‘Daisy’ celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, perfumer Alberto Morillas has created a brand new floral fragrance with joyful, refreshing notes of jasmine and violet.
Pas de deux
The best gifts are those you can share and the Krug Grand Cuvée Sharing Set with two Joseph glasses will get both of you smiling. The deep golden colour and fine bubbles are enhanced by the tulip shaped glasses, designed especially for Krug by Riedel.
A stormy, wet spring threatened the success of the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2009; it almost never existed. Luckily for us, the weather turned gave us a fantastic champagne packed with notes of honey and spice and a hint of pink grapefruit.
Travelling with a trunk is so last century, yet the idea of it still captivates. Instead of the larger Moynat Limousine trunk, why not give her the mini-version: a Limousine clutch? The iconic shape remains the same, however the size (20 x 25cm) is much more manageable. Taken out for a night out, the gold metal will perfectly complement her glass of champagne.
