Pale golden yellow with a persistent effervescence. This is a new cuvee, made to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the coronation of King Louis XV of France. The bouquet is very expressive and rich with notes of brioche, ripe yellow fruit and almonds. The palate is powerful, full of fruit and with a very long, refined finish with hints of red apple, caramel, cloves and nutmeg character.

The history of the Maison de Venoge began in 1837 when Henri-Marc de Venoge founded the Maison de Champagne de Venoge in the French commune of Mareuil-sur-Ay. A man of innate entrepreneurial skills, de Venoge was the creator of the first ever illustrated label in the history of Champagne, in 1838. And again; when the Maison chose the blue ribbon of the Knights of the Order of the Holy Spirit as its emblem, it gave birth to one of the most iconic labels ever, the Cordon Bleu. The Maison de Venoge has been a worldwide ambassador for Champagne for 180 years with refined products of absolute excellence. Alongside the Maison's iconic Champagne, the cuvée Princes, created in 1858 in honour of the Dutch royal house, stand out for their elegant bottle reminiscent of the decanters used by European aristocracy to serve Champagne in the early 20th century. At the top of the range, the cuvée Louis XVis made exclusively from grapes from the best Grand Cru villages and only in the best vintages.
