1. Perrier-Jout Champagne launches eco-friendly gift boxes for the holidays

It"s important to remember the environmental mission while celebrating the holidays, such as Perrier-Jout's eco-friendly holiday box for the year-end holiday season.

The gift box is the result of two years of research and development, maintaining the same elegance as before, while reflecting the winery's concern and philosophy of sustainability. Designed and manufactured in France, they are 30% lighter than the regular version of the gift box, do not contain any mineral oil and are embossed with the most advanced technology to minimize the use of ink. With virtually no secondary materials used, these newly launched gift boxes can be easily recycled 100%. Benefit from a specific material and embossing treatment that greatly enhances recyclability.

Inspired by the Champagne terroir, the gift box is matte white to evoke the chalk cellars located underground in the Champagne region. The box is emblazoned with the winery's logo and distinguishes the wines by color: the green logo corresponds to Perrier-Jout Grand Brut, the pink logo to Perrier-Jout Blason Ros, and the gold logo to Perrier-Jout Blanc de Blancs.

The Perrier-Jout winery says: "We are willing to fulfill our commitment to the environment through concrete actions. The new collection of gift boxes, which will be launched in France at the end of this year, represents the first step towards environmental protection.

2. Piper-Heidsieck launches a limited edition Prohibition centenary gift box

The year 2020 marks the centenary of the introduction of Prohibition in the United States. Therefore, to mark the end of the year festivities, Piper-Heidsieck decided to commemorate this chaotic year with a limited edition of the same label champagne, modelled on its 1920s label design.

The label of this limited edition champagne uses the logo of the 1920s winery, with the "Prohibition Edition" and the name of the wine "Piper Brut", and the 1920-2020 logo on the top of the bottle. To celebrate the occasion, the winery also used the traditional gold color of the winery to wrap the neck of the bottle.

The box is designed to give a visual representation of what it was like to transport Piper-Heidsieck Champagne from France to the port of Saint-Pierre-Et-Miquelon in the United States. In addition, you can scan the QR code on the box to see the full behind-the-scenes story of the winery's memories.

In addition, to evoke the prohibition period, Piper-Heidsieck has created three versions of the wooden boxes in which the champagne was transported and secretly traded.

The wine is a blend of 50% Pinot Noir, 30% Meunier and 20% Chardonnay, with 25% storage wine used. The supplemental sugar level is 9g/L.

3. Rothschild Champagne and HugoVictor launch Christmas tree trunk cake

Frdric Mairesse, General Manager of Baron Philippe de Rothschild, and Hugues Pouget, Chef de Cuisine at HugoVictor Desserts, wanted to combine the divine Christmas tree trunk cake with Rothschild champagne to celebrate the year-end holiday extravaganza.

The cake is a delicate combination of grapefruit and lychee, with a base of bread with grapefruit peel, almond cookies and grapefruit flavored cream, covered with lychee flavored jam and mousse. It is the star dessert of Hugo Victor Dessert Shop this winter, and is available for the month of December only. Its slightly acidic flavor and richness bring a full freshness and finesse that blends perfectly with the Rothschild rosé champagne.
