“Champagne is the only wine that leaves a woman beautiful after drinking it.”
– Madame de Pompadour
What better way to spoil yourself, or a special Mom in your life, on Mother’s Day than Champagne? In honor of this very special holiday, The Glamorous Gourmet is giving away a fabulous bottle of Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Champagne to one very lucky winner – a $90 value!
In the 1960’s, making a non-vintage rosé Champagne was virtually unthinkable but Bernard de Nonancort, the charismatic Chairman and CEO of Laurent-Perrier, was just the man to make it happen. Laurent-Perrier’s Cuvée Rosé was launched in 1968 in an elegant bottle inspired by those made in the time of French King Henri IV. This gorgeous sparkler is a lovely, salmon pink hue with seductive aromas of fresh red berries, minerals, and smoke. The palate is lively and layered with notes of strawberry, black currant, gingerbread, and a hint of anise followed by a delightfully lengthy finish. While perfectly delicious on its own, the Cuvée Rosé also pairs beautifully with a variety of dishes including foie gras with red currants, roasted chicken with mushrooms, beef tenderloin – or whatever your heart desires!
To enter the giveaway for the bottle of Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Champagne, simply leave a comment below and tell us your favorite way to celebrate Mother’s Day.

Entering the giveaway is that simple and for additional chances to win, you can (1) sign up to receive our weekly newsletter by clicking here and/or (2) leave a comment on another one of our blog posts.
