We’re incurable romantics over at Rusty Rabbit, so this Valentine’s Day, we’re encouraging you to whisper sweet nothings into your lover’s long furry ears with a gift of champagne from one of the best vineyard regions in France. Your bottle of Lapin Rouillé will come nestled in an unmistakable Harvey Nichols gift bag with a box of Michelin-star quality handmade single origin chocolates from Cartografie.
Lapin Rouillé Champagne is made in a traditional brut style, using only hand-harvested Pinot Meunier grapes from a small single estate producer near Reims. 100% Pinot Meunier champagne is rapidly gaining in popularity for its light, dry and floral flavors. And Lapin Rouillé follows in the footsteps (or paw prints) of similar pre-eminent cuvées from the likes of Billecart-Salmon, Laherte and Egly-Ouriet.
And, especially for this Valentine’s Day, the chocolatiers at Cartografie have created bespoke and hand-filled mouthfuls of heaven to pair perfectly with the Lapin Rouillé. Truly, a couple that were made for each other.
We’ve got up close and personal with Harvey Nichols, London’s leading luxury department store and one of the world’s best brand curators, to offer this very limited edition gift bag at £70 for delivery to anywhere in mainland UK.
So if the love of your life is as special as you say, put your best furry foot forwards, and hop over to Harvey Nichols website to order your Valentine’s Champagne Gift bag today.
Bouncing energetically around the palate with springy exuberance, Lapin Rouillé displays exotic fruit, red berries, spring flowers and a pinch of sea salt. It’s enough to make the ‘hare’ stand up on the back of your neck. A stunning aperitif or accompaniment to your maritime culinary creations. To buy this champagne separately, browse over to this page.
Our gift box contains four bespoke, handcrafted chocolates; two using sumptuous white chocolate from Yuna Valley in the Dominican Republic, filled with a salted beurre noisette ganache and two using Femmes de Virunga 55 dark chocolate from Eastern Congo, filled with a caramel ganache and salted, crystallized hazelnut.
Cartografie chocolates are made by hand in London by Kae Shibata, ex-Pastry Chef at The Ritz, and Sven-Hanson Britt, Winner of Masterchef The Professionals – The Rematch 2019. Not only do they create their chocolates with a devotion to provenance, but they share a social and environmental conscience to rival the lovely Greta T. Find out more at www.cartografiechocolate.com
