To fête this year’s annual Yelloweek, the exclusive celebration was kicked off with a cruise on the Oriole off of Queens Quay on April 28, 2016.
A new champagne, Veuve Clicquot RICH aims to represent the fun, energetic and sociable side of life. Not only can you enjoy the champagne on its own, but it was also created with cocktails in mind – a sweeter champagne hence the name, ‘rich’ that mixes incredibly well with many ingredients. It boasts being the first of it’s kind in North America, a champagne dedicated to mixology.
Last year was the inaugural Yelloweek Toronto presented by luxury champagne brand, Veuve Clicquot, and now this year it’s back again. It aims to be a multifaceted week long tribute to “Let Life Surprise You” including creativity, classy moments and of course, some fine bubbly, giving you a glimpse into the world of Maison Veuve Clicquot.
As if the world’s most famous champagne could get even more luxurious. I was one of a lucky few to be given an opportunity to have a one-on-one private appointment with Dom Pérignon’s very own winemaker from Champagne, France, the Chef de Cave, Richard Geoffroy, in a suite at the Trump Tower here in Toronto. The special occasion was to taste the uber-special vintage 1998 Dom Pérignon Second Plentitude 16 years in the making.
