Celebrate in style

For a special occasion, nothing beats the golden-yellow label of that grand old lady of Champagne: Veuve Clicquot! To appreciate its subtle personality, the trick is not to serve it overly chilled. A pouring temperature of 10 degrees Celsius allows its almond, pastry and vanilla aromas to expand in the glass.

Happy holidays!
