Introducing Vranken Demoiselle Parisienne Millesime 2015, a luxurious champagne that exudes sophistication and elegance, created in 1985. Crafted by the renowned Maison Vranken, this exquisite champagne is a true reflection of the Parisian way of life - refined, chic, and full of joie de vivre. The 2015 vintage is a testament to Vranken's commitment to excellence and the art of champagne-making. Each bottle is a work of art, showcasing the Maison's iconic Parisienne-inspired bottle design and bearing the signature of the Demoiselle herself - a symbol of beauty, grace, and feminine power.

As a young entrepreneur, Paul-François Vranken settled in Champagne in 1976 to set up his own champagne house in the heart of the Sézanne region. Then in 1985, he purchased the Château des Castaignes in Montmort, built on the site called La Demoiselle, a few kilometres away from Epernay. The Château is perched on the hillside, in the heart of a park designed by Edouard Redont who also designed the park of Villa Demoiselle. The idea arose to create a new cuvée for Vranken champagne called La Demoiselle de Champagne, Demoiselle being a common name for the dragonfly, which was an emblem for the Art Nouveau genius René Lalique. Everything matched to make this first brut champagne, whose special bottle was a moving tribute to Art Nouveau. In 2004, Paul-François Vranken acquired the Villa Demoiselle to establish the head office of the Champagnes Vranken. Château des Castaignes is therefore the origin of the Demoiselle collection.

This romantic champagne comes in a decorated gift box that is a unique and original creation. The shape of the Demoiselle bottles echo the motifs which are found in Art Nouveau, the great artistic movement of the early 20th century, which drew its inspiration from nature. As part of this trend, the Demoiselle cuvée La Parisienne and its opalescent glasswork pays homage to the know-how of the French master glassmaker and jeweller René Lalique. The strong personality of these bottles inspired by Art Nouveau represents the style of Demoiselle's champagne.

Pressing of grapes is completed according to the qualitative Champagne pressing principles and the ‘Tête de Cuvée’ specifications. Full traceability of each press is key in order to confirm that the specifications have been adhered to and to record the related technical information. In order to extract the purest juice to provide finesse and elegance, there is a focus on the principle of fractionation: only the first two ‘presses’ of the pressing cycle are used in the ‘Tête de Cuvée’ process, a key element to ensuring quality. Cloaked in the subtlest aromas, the blended juice is higher in sugar and acid content, which lends maturity and freshness to the wines and gives them a remarkable freshness on the palate, apt for ageing. After pressing, in the winery, maximum separation of qualities and crus is ensured in order to have the widest possible range during assemblage. Vraken's teams of oenologists, led by winemaker Dominique Pichart, evaluate each vat during winemaking and select those that are likely to enter the composition of the tête de cuvée. La Parisienne 2015 is a Brut Vintage champagne that comes from the three most classic Champagne grape varieties, with a majority of Chardonnay from Grand cru terroirs.

This sparkling champagne is a glowing golden hue with a few green accents complemented by a rich and complex bouquet of ripe fruit, delicate floral notes, and hints of butter brioche and lemongrass. On the palate, Vranken Demoiselle Parisienne Millesime 2015 is a harmonious blend of freshness and intensity, with a silky texture and a long, elegant finish. Its bubbles are delicate and persistent with a very fine strand of foam. It provides a fresh finish and is very balanced on the palate making it an ideal aperitif.
