Champagne Henri Giraud
The beautiful La Petite Robe Noire (The little Black Dress) box set by fashion designer Didier Ludot and Champagne Henri Giraud – was conceived to revive the Pinot Noir Champagne. Only 2,360 bottles of this champagne are made, and 180 available in Singapore. Based on an original idea of the Atelier Henri Giraud, this box set contains a bottle of champagne whose label is dressed and signed by Didier Ludot, two flutes with a gold and black enamel decoration designed by Felix Ludot, a top hat box with a red suede tray and black leather strap plus waterproof interior. The box can be reversed to form an ice bucket. Available at Sarment, Tel: 6636 9863
We simply can’t have enough champagne for the festive season. This year-end, bring a bottle (or a case!) of Gosset Champagne to a friend’s dinner party. The versatile and food-friendly Brut Exellence N.V. has an open and expressive nose, with rich flavours of ripe yellow stone fruit such as apricots or peaches, and almonds. Alternatively, the luxurious Gosset Champagne Brut 15 Ans De Cave offers a rich, complex nose delivering notes of orange-flavoured biscuit, stone fruits, dried fruits and gingerbread. The palate is lush yet fresh, and fruit-forward. Or zero in on the Gosset Champagne Brut Grande Reserve NV, a yellow gold wine with aromas of dried fruit and currants and a hint of Christmas spice. This also happens to be one of the G top 100 Wines 2016. https://straitswine.com
