Fifty years after her passing away, blond screen siren Marilyn Monroe continues to make headlines. This time, a bottle of champagne’s being named in her honor.
Produced by French champagne house JM Gobillard & Fils for Norwegian company Rosmersholm, the Marilyn Monroe champagne is 50 percent Chardonnay, 25 percent Pinot Noir and 25 percent Pinot Meunier, and produced in the Hautvillers, Cumières and Dizy areas of Champagne. Described as fruity, silky and delicate, the champagne has an elegant nose and was cellar-aged for three years.
Champagne Marilyn Monroe Premier Cru Brut will debut at the world’s largest wine trade fair in Bordeaux this week, where 50,000 attendees from 47 countries are expected to converge. The bubbly also comes with a set of six curvaceous flutes.
