Champagne gift packs pay tribute the the roaring 20s

It is that time of the year: bubbles time.

The Melbourne Racing Carnival is upon us, and Christmas parties are just around the corner.

And if you are looking for a gift for a fashion-conscious wine lover, what about a limited-release gift pack containing a bottle from Champagne House Heidsieck & Co Monopole.

Heidsieck has just revealed a fresh new look to its packaging with the "1920s Gatsby styling" of its 2022 releases.

Boasting to have been enjoyed by "aristocrats, royalty, and rulers alike", Heidsieck & Co Monopole was born in Reims just prior to the French Revolution in 1785. 

The historic brand is most famously known as the “Shipwreck Champagne”, after 2,400 bottles of the 1907 vintage were discovered underwater 82 years after the Jönoköping was sunk in 1916.

Each cuvée is packed in a limited-edition gift box with a nod to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 20s icon “Gatsby the Magnificent”. 

Currently available are the Blue Top Brut NV ($59.99) - a fresh and lively number that was very popular with my tasting group) - and the Rosé Top Brut NV ($74.99) that is a new introduction to the Australian market and being saved for a significant date later this week (stay tuned!).

The Heidsieck & Co Monopole Brut and Brut Rosé are now available from independent bottle shops, with the 2012 vintage Gold Top ($85.99) being released in November.

A fun range - and well priced.
