About the Poster: This French advertisement for Montebello Champagne is inspired by the bottle label itself, and so carries with it the same clean, sleek, yet regal look. This emphasis on elegance stems from the origin of the brand: In 1830, the Duke of Montebello and his brother acquired the Chateau de Mareuil (Marne) property, which included over a hundred hectares of vines. From this they created the champagne Alfred de Montebello. It was so highly regarded that it was the drink chosen to receive the Tsar Nicholas II of Russia in the 1890s. It was even mentioned in Wade Davis's 2011 book Into the Silence: The Great War, Mallory, and the Conquest of Everest: “Among the supplies were sixty tins of quail in foie gras and forty-eight bottles of Champagne, Montebello 1915, the general’s favorite vintage". The legacy is clear: Montebello Champagne is the drink of royalty.

Printed in Lille-Paris by J.E. Goossens and recently linen backed, this poster would look absolutely beautiful framed in any kitchen, above a dining room table, in a restaurant, or anywhere else you would need a splash of colour and elegance!
