Baccarat and Duval-Leroy Team up to Launch Crystal Carafe

By Paul Joseph

French crystal maker Baccarat has designed a holiday gift set featuring the Duval-Leroy Meilleurs Ouvriers de France Sommeliers champagne, a new cuvée launched last April.

A Baccarat crystal carafe etched with the Maison Duval-Leroy monogram comes housed in a stylish red and silver case alongside a bottle of Duval-Leroy's Cuvée des Meilleurs Ouvriers de France Sommeliers.

The case is engraved with the emblem of the Maison Duval-Leroy, an elegant blend of premier cru and grands crus from the Vertus vineyards of Duval-Leroy in northeastern France.

Duval-Leroy works closely with leading contemporary sommeliers and has a tradition of highlighting some of the profession's rising stars. This November, the winery will present the winner of the Duval-Leroy Best French Young Sommelier award.

The gift set, priced at $650, is available upon request directly from the Duval-Leroy winery.
