Champagne De Watère Celebrate their 5-Year Anniversary
25th July 2016
Labelling on all bottles of Champagne De Watère has been updated to become even more elegant and more luxurious.
Keeping the family colours of white and black, labels present themselves much cleaner and more understated than ever. With all ornaments and writing on the front labels in relief, they are beautiful to look at as well as to feel. The back labels, however, have been completely redesigned and now provide a special section with each bottle’s individual production dates. Customers can now track their individual bottle’s life until dispatch by the means of the three most important production dates.
These three dates are:
1. Tirage gives the date when the grape juice from the Premier Cru vineyard was filled into the bottle and started ripening together with the yeast. Yeast is traditionally used in the Méthode Champenoise to convert the grapes’ sugar to alcohol and CO2 which is responsible for the Perlage (bubbles). Since Champagne De Watère’s Cuvée consists of two consecutive years in the ratio 50%/50%, the later year is given.
2. Disgorge gives the date when the Champagne was disgorged, meaning when the yeast was removed and when the dosage was added. Dosage is a little dose of reserve wine which gives Champagne De Watère’s Cuvées their final character and determines their level of sweetness; in this case this is Brut (little sugar). In general, the longer Champagnes were in contact with the yeast, the finer the Perlage (bubbles) becomes and the more silk-like the feel on palate and tongue. Also, with long ripening, the Champagnes become very elegantly balanced yet fruity.
3. LOT gives the date when the bottle was ‘dressed’, meaning when the labels were applied and when the bottle was packaged for final delivery to the customers. Of course, all new labelling fulfill the same strict eco-friendly standards as always at Champagne De Watère.
Customers can now choose whether they would like to receive their Champagne De Watère Cuvée in stunning wood cases with lush silk cushions inside or unpackaged – which at De Watère Champagne means: in a lacquered gold bag. This choice was introduced specially with wedding receptions, gallery openings and celebrations with many guests in mind, where customers simply would not need wood cases.
The Champagne De Watère 1er Cru Brut Blanc starts at just 199€ for the unpackaged version, and just 249€ for the version with the beautiful wood case and silk cushions; including taxes and delivery in Europe. The Champagne De Watère 1er Cru Brut Rosé Saignée starts at just 229€ for the unpackaged version, and just 279€ for the version with the beautiful wood case and silk cushions; including taxes and delivery in Europe.
Also in celebration of five successful years and to make the Champagne De Watère experience available to more customers, elegant new glasses have been added to the portfolio.
The line ‘Gourmet’ is produced in cooperation with one of the best-known German stemware producers VEGA. With frequent use in mind, the glasses are made from extra-sturdy glass. With a compact volume of 160ml and an elegant print of Champagne De Watère’s logo in white, they have been tested for dishwasher compatibility with 1,000 washing circles. The price for a set of six glasses is set at just 64.90€ including taxes and delivery in Europe.
