The Legend

  • Paris, 1688. On a beautiful spring day, a young man named Honoré befriended an aged bishop, native of the Châlons-en-Champagne region. Worn-down by time, the old man passed away a few months later. With his last words, he whispered in his friend’s ear the secret recipe for an elixir that he was the only one who possessed it. Honoré swore by all the saints that he would never disclose it to anyone. History does not tell us what happened to him, or what he did with this weighty secret.
  • But according to a legend, Honoré managed to seduce the most beautiful young maiden by following the old bishop’s recipe to the letter and so, creating an elixir to arouse her passion. Jealous men accused him of witchcraft. One morning, tired of being relentlessly attacked, Honoré and his beloved disappeared. Nobody ever saw them again.
  • In 1928, a sealed envelope, yellowed by centuries gone by, was discovered during the restoration of an ancient Parisian building on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The dusty and almost illegible letter described with great precision a recipe, with no alcohol, based on red and white grapes. It was signed: Honoré. Back then the recipe was considered uninteresting and with no future. So the old envelope ended up in a box... before reappearing in 1988, on the stall of a secondhand bookseller on the banks of the Seine

  • Storing 1688 Cuvee

    To maintain the quality of 1688 Grand Rosé and 1688 Grand Blanc, we recommend you to store them away from heat in a dry and clean area away from direct daylight. Fresh and fruity, the 1688 Cuvee has to be enjoyed in its youth.
  • Chilling
    1688 Bottle

    To chill the bottle the ideal is the champagne bucket full of a quarter of ice for three quarts of water. In maximum 30 minutes your 1688 Cuvee will be ready for a very pleasant tasting (between 6 and 8 degrees). If the champagne bucket fails you, the refrigerator is the easiest way to reach the perfect temperature in maximum 3 hours. Put the bottle horizontally for a better temperature distribution.For an extreme refreshment, we suggest you to serve your 1688 Cuvee frappe (between 2 and 4 degrees). The feeling of freshness will be boosted with powerful and icy bubbles.
  • Uncorking
    1688 Cuvee

    Take the chilled bottle from the champagne bucket, dry it and remove the cap and the wire cap. Carefully hold your bottle at an angle and maintain a firm group on the cork. Be careful not to hold the bottle in the direction of one of your neighbors, just in case the cork pops out without warning. Gently turn the bottle to free the cork and wipe the side of the bottle before pouring. A bottle should normally served up to 5 at 8 flutes.
  • Taste
    1688 Cuvee

    For a perfect tasting, serve your 1688 Grand Rosé and 1688 Blanc in crystal or fine glass flutes. The flute is the ideal shaped glass to serve the 1688 Cuvee as it allows the aroma to develop best. Ideally the flute should be egg-shaped with a cone-shaped bottom to ease the release of the bubbles and to concentrate their aromas.
