Ooh-la-lah! The president and CEO of French Champagne house Moët & Chandon, Daniel Lalonde, flew to Miami Beach to host a very exclusive party to introduce their latest venture: Moët & Chandon Ice Imperial. This new and quite spectacular champagne was formulated specifically to drink over ice. Perfect for our year round heat, n’est-ce pas?
Yes, you put the ice inside your glass. Champagne? On ice? Before all of you die-hard champagne connoisseurs pass out from the horror, not to worry. Moët & Chandon winemaker Benoit Gouez, explained that he created stronger flavors for this champagne from a blend of pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay. It’s slightly sweeter and fruitier than the classic Moët & Chandon Imperial and holds up to being diluted by ice. Pas de problem!
Over 100 VIPs attended the invitation-only sunset cocktail party at a gorgeous contemporary home on Hibiscus Island. The all-white setting was the perfect backdrop for the gold and white Ice Imperial bottle and for the glamorous crowd at the party. The glamour quotient was also high with quite a mix of the super chic from other U.S. cities and Europe as well.
Also there, Olivia de Longueil, Director of Events Worldwide for Moët & Chandon; Carol Bell from Brandlink Communications; Jeweler Jackie Abraham and wife Johanna; real estate broker Hello Campos; attorney Maria Beguiristain; the Baroness Sheri de Borchgrave; Malinka Max and George Wallner.
I propose that Moët & Chandon Ice Imperial should be decreed the official bubbly for Miami Beach!
