The magic will continue even after your return to the U.S., when both couples will have a “Krug & Music” experience and receive a stunning collection of Krug Champagne to help them relive this unforgettable trip.

Your adventure begins with a chauffeured morning transfer to Reims, the capital of Champagne. You’ll check into the legendary Les Crayères, a magical castle inaugurated in 1904 by Louise Pommery, your home for the next two nights. Enjoy lunch in their restaurant Brasserie Le Jardin. Later that evening, visit Maison Krug for a “Soloist to Orchestra” experience enjoying Krug Clos du Mesnil, Krug Vintage and Krug Grande Cuvée, each paired with music, followed by a Krug dinner with an executive member of the House.

On the second day of your adventure, you’ll visit Krug’s iconic Clos du Mesnil vineyard, a 1.85-acre walled plot which is one of the most exclusive Chardonnay sources in the world. You’ll have lunch at the Clos du Mesnil with a representative of the House, served with Krug Clos du Mesnil and Krug Grande Cuvée. Continue the day with a guided tour of Reims, including the Palais du Tau and the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Reims. In the evening, enjoy apéritif and dinner at the Michelin Three-starred restaurant, L’Assiette Champenoise with the lyrical cuisine of chef Arnaud Lallement paired with a selection of Krug.

From Reims, your private chauffeur will whisk you to Paris for three nights’ accommodation at the Cheval Blanc Paris, called “the most beautiful new hotel in Paris” by Vogue magazine. The Art Deco Cheval Blanc occupies the south side of the historic La Samaritaine department store complex, overlooking the Pont Neuf and only a few steps from the Louvre.

While in Paris, you will visit the Louis Vuitton Foundation to learn about the world of art and discover Louis Vuitton’s commitment to creation and innovation. Designed by architect Frank Gehry and opened in October 2014, it has become a new location in Paris for contemporary French and international artistic creation.

Near Place de la Bastille, discover the former workshop of a French caviar house, transformed into a modern and warm loft while you sip Krug and feast on caviar. The house now supplies caviar to many Michelin-starred chefs in France and abroad such as Alain Ducasse, Yannick Alléno and Alain Passard.

In the heart of the French capital city, relax on your private cruise along the leafy banks of the Seine River and experience the magic in a city like no other.  With your private, bilingual French captain, you will be sipping Krug as you marvel at the iconic sights of the Grand Palais, the Eiffel Tower, the Musée d’Orsay and much more. Conclude your magical day with dinner at a Michelin-Starred restaurant.

Spend time exploring backstage at the Opéra Garnier, the most renowned French Opera house and discover the Rotonde du Glacier, Marc Chagall’s paintings, the stage-costume workshops and the Foyer de la danse. Based on availability, a special musical performance with Krug will be created for you.

Explore the cutting edge of fashion and accessories with a tailor-made experience in one of the fabled LVMH houses. Based on your preferences, there are a wealth of options to choose from: luxury leather goods (Louis Vuitton), the height of couture (Dior), fragrances and skin care (Guerlain), jewelry and fine watches (Chaumet) and the ultimate in men’s footwear (Berluti). Whatever you decide, you’ll receive a personalized visit including private shopping.

To conclude this unforgettable journey, you will be invited to discover the Moët Hennessy Private Apartment located in the Triangle d’Or and immerse yourself through a gastronomic dinner complimented by some of their iconic houses: Krug, Cheval Blanc, Château d’Yquem and Hennessy rare cognacs.

Back in the USA, your magical sojourn is far from over. A Moët Hennessy Private Client Director will host a unique Krug & Music dinner experience for the two (2) winning couples and six (6) of their friends in a private residence. And in the years to come, each couple will be able to remember their journey with a special collection of rare Champagnes.
