La Grande Dame by Veuve Cliquot

New Year’s Eve must have: French artist Andrée Putman created a mysterious presentation box that houses Veuve Clicquot’s La Grande Dame 1998 champagne.

La Grande Dame comes in a special casket that has been designed with a posh look by Andree Putman, interior designer. The casket doesn’t just carry a cubist aura but is also practical since it doubles up as the ice holder (The Veuve website has a video with Andree Putnam as she explains her theory in creating the box).

La Grande Dame from Veuve Cliquot is as luxurious as it comes. The fine bubbly, casing and even the price is going to leave you breathless : the item is only available in a limited edition of 2,000 and the box along with a bottle of the champagne sells for around $500.
