Champagne Speaks


In an age of emails, Facebook and WhatsApp, there’s still no form of communication more meaningful than a message delivered by voice. With this in mind, the brilliant minds at Veuve Clicquot have developed a way to give the gift of Champagne with a recorded voice note attached.

The Clicq’Call concept is a voice recorder that’s built into the box of the Veuve Clicquot Rosé. All you need to do is press the button and say what’s on your heart before gifting the box, and the recipient will then receive a delicious bottle of bubbly accompanied by your special words.

The Veuve Clicquot Rosé is a lovely gift in itself. Bright, intense and fruity, this luxurious wine, which is predominantly Pinot Noir, boasts a radiant colour and an elegant nose, with notes of raspberry, wild strawberry, cherry and pastry.

Of course, the Clicq’Call innovation comes at the perfect time considering February is the month of love and sweethearts everywhere are looking for ways to communicate their adoration. But it can be used to say whatever you want to whomever you want – congratulations to a newly engaged couple, thank you to a colleague or happy birthday to an old friend, for example. Plus, the recipient can actually reuse the packaging and voice recorder again, so it’s a gift that keeps on giving in a sense.

The Clicq’Call Rosé is available for a limited period until the end of March 2016 from leading liquor merchants countrywide. It costs from R669.95.
