When taste-testing some of the world’s most revered champagne is all in a day’s work, it’s safe to assume you have the celebratory season sorted. Elise Losfelt, winemaker for Moët & Chandon, shares a few of her favourite summer things.
“My perfect plan? A Sunday afternoon at Les Crayères hotel in Reims, France, with a tea in one of its salons. It’s peaceful, relaxing and chic.”
“When visitors come to Épernay I have two favouritef spots, which we are very lucky to have at the heart of Moët & Chandon. First, the cellars! We have the largest cellars in Champagne, with more than 28 kilometres of tunnels arranged on three levels. Also, the Mont Aigu lodge offers a magnificent view of our vineyard.” Moët & Chandon winemaker Elise Losfelt. “My everyday style is definitely casual chic. I love to wear skinny jeans, a pair of boots and complete my look with a blazer. I need to travel around every day for my work, whether that be to the vineyards, our winery or to destinations around the world.” YVES SAINT LAURENT JEANS, $905, FROM WWW.NET-APORTER.COM. CHLOÉ BOOTS, $1,325, FROM WWW.NET-APORTER.COM. Inside the cellars. “The last perfume I really fell for was Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet, from Christian Dior Parfums. I love to wear it in the summer, because it is so fresh and joyful!” MISS DIOR BLOOMING BOUQUET, 100ML FOR $198. “My favourite designer is Phoebe Philo from Céline, because of her vision for the smart and elegant woman. The silhouettes are always fashionable and so chic!”
