LOVE IS…A BOTTLE
OF FINE FIZZ

Need some inspiration for a beautiful gift she’ll savour? Cue this bottle of bubbles crafted by an all-female line-up at one of France’s most renowned champagne houses

Lily Bollinger, Marie-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt and Madame Clicquot – the champagne region isn’t short of grandes dames, and the sparkling collaboration between Carol Duval-Leroy and her head winemaker Sandrine Logette-Jardin puts this pair among them. Together, they created Femme de Champagne, a careful marriage of the best grapes from five grand cru vineyards. An effervescent blend aged in oak barrels to enhance its elegance, it has a distinctively nutty, floral aroma. Served with your Valentine’s Day meal it will elevate even the simplest dish into banquet-worthy fare, but if you really want to make an impression, give this bottle in its smart presentation box as a gift.
