Rare birds and other colourful surprises awaited guests attending the 2017 Veuve Clicquot Yelloweek launch held yesterday evening at a luxury loft in the heart of downtown.
We braved the elements to get the lushly decorated, jungle-inspired launch that featured both Veuve Clicquot Rich and Rich Rosé. Since launching only a few years ago, Veuve Clicquot rich, with its high sugar content, has become the go-to cocktail of choice for anyone wishing to beat the heat with a crisp coupe de champagne. Montreal has been under siege by grey skies and heavy rains for weeks now, with only brief glimpses of sunshine peppered throughout the last couple of months. The brightly coloured launch, complete with a properly primped pink flamingo, a dashing daredevil safari guide and a sultry jungle princess, was one of the not-to-be-missed events of the evening.
Every year Yelloweek injects some much needed fizz into the Montreal’s restaurant scene where participating restaurants offer meals and bites and Veuve Clicquot champagne at special prices. This year promises to follow suit with Yellow brunch, Yellow Night, Yellow by the glass, Yellow Table and much more.
