MOËT & CHANDON UNVEILS THE 2018 ROSÉ CAPSULE COLLECTION
The French Champagne House pays tribute to Madame de Pompadour with an unconventional limited edition Rosé bottle.Moët & Chandon, the world’s most shared champagne, is thrilled to introduce the 2018 Rosé Capsule Collection, an unconventional and contemporary tribute to Madame de Pompadour, the 18th century “It Girl” who declared the success of Moët & Chandon at the French royal court. This audacious limited edition bottle offers an unexpected peek into these extravagant courts’ times, reinterpreting their codes and looks with a contemporary style.
Moët & Chandon’s history is intrinsically linked with Madame de Pompadour’s influence. King Louis XV’s most powerful confidante, she was one of the first connoisseur and established customer of the French champagne house, introducing it to her influential royal entourage. According to legend, she once confessed that champagne was the only wine that leaves a woman beautiful after drinking.
This 2018 Rosé Capsule Collection praises Madame de Pompadour for leading the vanguard of her times and being the world’s first “It Girl”. A true tastemaker in arts, literature, interior design and style, she played a key role in making Paris the European capital of taste and culture, influencing the French scene and beyond.
True to Moët & Chandon’s legendary savoir-fête, this limited edition bottle has been thought as a mood board for revisiting a royal masquerade ball. In the front row, you can’t miss the camera-faced marquise with her inseparable modern courtesans: a peacock-dressed woman, a cabaret-styled girl, and finally a seductive gentleman in a rock and roll look. The choice of collage design echoes the mix of cultures that spread from the 18th century, when artists of diverse disciplines gathered at the royal court, all inspiring one another.
Elegantly dressed in quartz pantone, the 2018 Rosé Capsule Collection is a playful catwalk of roses. Either holding a bunch in one’s hand or in a charming mouth, the generous and fully bloomed roses on the bottle mirror the floral nuances of rose featured in the Rosé Impérial’s bewitching bouquet. Renowned for its radiant color, intense fruitiness and seductive palate, this champagne is the most extrovert and glamorous expression of the Moët & Chandon style.
Available at selective retailers and at the trendiest lounge bars, Moët & Chandon 2018 Rosé Capsule Collection celebrates any shades of love. The limited edition 75cl bottle is perfect for celebrating love milestones – from a romantic date to the most spontaneous family gathering – while the sleek mini bottle is the irresistible accessory to an unforgettable night out.
