Leon Verres And Le Billionaire Champagne

  • Pin it

Drinking champagne is, to me, associated with special moments. I don’t think than bubbling up the moment would bring more flavor to the celebration, but I sometimes like traditions just where and when they’re supposed to be.

Leon Verres’s ambition, to launch a bottle of sparkling wine for the elites of the Rich Club is a risky initiative in times like these, but I guess for some, a 9 liters (304 fl oz) champagne bottle for $2,75 million could be looked at as a bargain. (the story continues right after the jump! Don’t miss the rest of the pictures and the video!)

Leon Verres le Billionaire Champagne

The good news is that Leon Verres only made 5 of them million-bottles, disguised them in yeti outfits and cleverly placed them in the garden, along with Easter eggs, for any (lucky, rich) child to find!

Just kidding, he did actually made 5 bottles except they’re dressed with designer outfits, studded with diamonds, wearing a Russian fur cap (Shapka). Miniature versions are available, 0,75 liter (25 fl oz) for just $2,750!

Don’t miss the promotional video, it may promote the world’s most expensive champagne but it definitely has the cheapest, tackiest promotional concept! Don’t you suddenly feel lucky not attending Le Billionaire Champagne Club? (is it just me, or this looks like a bad joke?) (via 1, 2)

No thank-you.
I was taught that only sparkling white wine from the Champagne region in France is the only actual champagne, it was created by monks in the region. Everything else is simply sparkling white wine.

#2 Anthony Davis on 04.13.09 at 6:25 am

StyleFrizz sucks! Leon Verres rocks! This article was written by the biggest idiot on this planet! Shame on you!

#3 Adriana on 04.13.09 at 6:31 am

LOL! I hadn’t read the article before watching the commercial and thought the same thing: billionaire champagne? This looks so cheap, tacky and shallow, is that a commercial for a sex-club or something?
I’m back to the basic, I like a good beer much better of late.

#4 Adriana on 04.13.09 at 6:34 am

Hahaha, Anthony Davis! More LOLs here! I bet you don’t like a good glass off beer?

#5 Anthony Davis on 04.13.09 at 6:49 am

It´s obvious that StyleFrizz is a place for losers. It´s obvious that Adriana B…h works for StyleFrizz. Are you paid by Moet Chandon & Co? I have decided to inform the LVLG about this defamatory statement. Good luck! PS: I love a good glas of beer!

#6 Arnoldo Valerio on 04.13.09 at 7:31 am

First of all Ellington has right the French considers only wine as champagne if it comes from a specific region. And Anthony since when may a contributer or the Blogger himself not have an own opinion? Anyway if you contact LVMH (and not LVLG) greet Mr. Bernard Arnault from me. Arriverderci

#7 Arnoldo Valerio on 04.13.09 at 7:35 am

Oops I forget to mention that they (LVMH) have the REAL champage and not Leon Verres, sorry to say.

#8 Maurizio de Angelis on 04.13.09 at 7:59 am

Arnoldo! Tu non sei un vero italiano. Devi essere una spia francese. A te dovrebbero togliere il passaporto…! Forza Leon Verres! EROE DI ITALIA!

#9 Maurizio de Angelis on 04.13.09 at 8:06 am

Oops I forget to mention that Arnoldo is french * !

#10 Adriana on 04.13.09 at 8:30 am

Antony Davis, you only make me laugh even more. The www is at times a smelly garbage can where small people seemed to feel big and mighty by anonymous offend and threatening people! I’m used to it now for quite some time and this only makes me laugh out more….

Maurizio de Angelis, such a stylish name for such unstylish comments. So Mr. Arnoldo is French now? Interesting…

To Kpriss, I do apologise to you for my comments but I can’t hold back these words…..and it was such a peaceful Easter…..

#11 Derek Forester on 04.13.09 at 9:54 am

Anthony & Maurizio! Thanks for the great comments you have posted here on StyleFrizz! Arnoldo and Barbie Adriana: Do you know that “Le Billionaire Champagne” has beaten all the big names also included the bestseller Moet & Chandon in a gourmet magazine test! So..stop talking b*t about Leon Verres!

#12 Ellington on 04.13.09 at 10:09 am

Derek, Anthony and Maurizio, why on earth are you all so verbally abusive? Really why?
Could you please present your argument for liking or buying this product in a clear and concise way without going to the lowest common denominator?
If Leon Verres is a favourite brand of yours that is nice but there is no need for insults and invective, that is simply bad form and base behaviour.

#13 Adriana on 04.13.09 at 10:20 am

Derak, I’m so sorry! I don’t even know whom Leon Verres is and I don’t bother to google whom he is either. That commercial speaks for itselfs to me.
Some folks had a bad Easter I believe……

#14 Maurizio de Angelis on 04.13.09 at 10:42 am

Dear Ellington! You want an argument? Read the article about the Le Billionaire Champagne from this corrupt writerin Kpriss. Where is the respect for an independent designer, who is fighting since years against the luxury goods mafia and his supporters…like StyleFrizz! Has Kpriss ever seen the champagne? Has Kpriss ever taste the champagne? Attention: In the next few days will come up a tsunami over StyleFrizz, when the 2,75 Mio. registered Leon Verres customers will be informed about this article.

#15 Adriana on 04.13.09 at 10:42 am

Huh, that’s strange. Ellington’s post wasn’t here when I’d reply……?? She did a much better job. So I quit now.
Thanks Ellington!

#16 Adriana on 04.13.09 at 10:54 am

After a second thought I do not quit! I see another reply….
The only one that started an argument is Anthony Davis followed suit by Maurizio de Angelis and Derek Forester.(Or three names for one person??) Not Kpriss from Stylefrizz, not Ellington, not B…h/Barbie me, just you, only you. Is that the effect from this wonderful champagne?

#17 kpriss on 04.13.09 at 1:29 pm

I reread myself hoping I will find that special something that fueled all this. All I keep seeing is the obvious alarmingly cheap and tacky promotional material for this over-the-head-of-common-sense-expensive sparkling wine (indeed, Champagne is copyrighted for the sparkling wines coming from that particular region in France).

Mr. Anthony Davis, Maurizio de Angelis, Derek Forester you all claim that this particular brand is highly appreciated and praised all over the world. Sadly, I haven’t heard about it before (and I’m not the only one, as you can see). I wish I could write a more appropriate review – if you could provide me with the right material (the small bottle will be just enough!), I’d be happy to judge the wine myself. But until then, please keep up with the subject of this article which is the promotional material for this Billionaire sparkling wine!

So, Mr. Leon Verres, from all those 2.7 Million adorers of your work, you only have the likes of Mr. Anthony Davis, Maurizio de Angelis and Derek Forester to speak up in your behalf? Or they’re the rudest of them all, courtesy of your special sparkling wine blend?

#18 Michelle on 04.14.09 at 12:13 am

StyleFrizz is a corrupt online magazine and Krpriss is a corrupt columnist. A dishonest and fraudulent person.

#19 Adriana on 04.14.09 at 3:12 am

This champagne needs to be researched! There’s a ingredient in it which causes confusion?

#20 Arnoldo Valerio on 04.14.09 at 10:36 am

From the first comment on (of course written by Anthony) they where trying to nail down Kpriss, and later the contributers. Is this a plan? I believe these people (the socalled followers of Anthony) are not born with common sense and try to ruin a Blog for their fun. I have to disappoint them they never will succeed at least not with this wonderful blog runned by our dearest Kpriss. The insults I got personally doesn’t matter me, because I’m not French, not a French spy or whatever Maurizio wrote. I found it actually very funny. Adriana I can agree with you that the champagne does something to your brain if I read the comments of the LV clan.

#21 Ellington on 04.14.09 at 11:56 am

No Adriana, not confusion, DELUSION.
What is wrong with them?
I am truly bewildered that all this sturm und drang is caused because Kpriss and a few other people where not impressed by the ad campaign of this sparkling white wine? Really?! This is not to be believed, and the rudeness and crass behaviour exhibited by some of the commentators in favour of this product is beyond belief. If you do not like something or if you disagree about something that is said there is a proper and respectful way to get one’s point across. Name calling, swearing, calumny and baiting is not the way to do it.

#22 Adriana on 04.14.09 at 2:42 pm

Ellington, right delusion. But I’m in a state of confusion!

#23 Sophia on 04.15.09 at 12:41 am

Adriana, Ellington & Arnoldo: Nice! By some strange chance, are your parents cousins?

#24 Arnoldo Valerio on 04.15.09 at 12:16 pm

We are all connected to each other, even you and I Sophia. That means if you believe in the story of Adam en Eve, and in a God. So we are all cousins/family of each other, but If I see the mess around me I can’t believe the story the Pope is the bible is trying to tell me. Why didn’t you gave your comments on the video/ad of that Leon Verres guy, and ask a question which has nothing to do with the subject, Arriverderci

#25 acidhorse on 04.16.09 at 1:28 am

Finally… a decent bitchy thread… reminds me of the good ole days of Style.com…

But most importantly… if we believe in creation… did Adam and Eve have belly buttons?

#26 Adriana on 04.16.09 at 2:12 am

OMG…..I’ve a belly button for sure……it hurts now from the LOLS….hahahahaha…..auauauau….

#27 Monica on 04.16.09 at 5:38 am

To all the poor stylefrizz b*s: If stupidity was a disease, you would be dead right now! And don´t forget: No money – no champagne! Adriana: Shut up!

#28 Arnoldo Valerio on 04.16.09 at 12:51 pm

My dear Monica, your compliments are heartbreaking. We thank you for those beautiful words you wrote to the ‘bitches’ of this Blog. Your special attention to Adriana was so overwhelming that I have cried about it. What you wrote is only a bad taste and it seems that you’re frustrated by the things you can’t get in your live. Thank your former president Bush for it, and don’t blame or accuse some members of a Blog that they havent the money to buy the Leon Verres ‘champagne’ the really poor people are poor in their mind and don’t understand what life is really about. Arriverderci

#29 Monica on 04.16.09 at 3:09 pm

Caro Arnoldo! Sono una italo-americana con sangue di Sicilia che vive a New York. A me non mi offende nessuno. Hai capito Arnoldo? Io non scherzo. La mia famiglia non scherza. E smetti a difendere queste puttane. Spero che non sei un frocio.

#30 Arnoldo Valerio on 04.17.09 at 12:05 pm

Monica after a good thought, I wil reply on your dead threat, do you really believe that I’m afraid about you or your family, who don’t like jokes? Isn’t what you wrote not a little bit childish? You live in NYC so you can write English, why didn’t you do that, actually it’s very unpolite to the other members of this Blog. Most of them don’t understand any Italian word you or earlier Maurizio wrote to me. I don’t care about the words you wrote to me or Maurizio, because it’s a lot of bullshit and not true. But I think you know that yourself. If you live in Hoboken, on the west side of the Hudson river, or in little Italy on Manhatten I don’t care about your words, or are you a member of the Five mobster families. Please let me know, because you and the others followers of the Verres clan make me laugh. Nothing about the Video commercial only attacking members which have a real sense of fasion and would/will gave there comments on this Blog. Arriverderci from Milano an enjoy your weekend.

#31 Francois on 04.20.09 at 4:04 am

Dear kpriss, the ignorance on this article is a shame. Yeti outfit? Incredible! I’m a french journalist! I’ve met Leon Verres and his amazing “Le Billionaire Champagne” for an interview in Paris. He is a serious person with a serious attitude on work. Though he can be seriously funny. I (and many colleagues) respect this man and his work. I wish you a nice day.

#32 Leandro on 04.23.09 at 3:07 pm

Thats very poor. Mr. Leon Verres, if you want to race the Porsche Challenge Cup, dont come with a rusty vw golf.

#33 Gustavson on 04.28.09 at 11:05 am

Mr. Leon Verres. Congratulations! Your Champagne is the new Number One Luxury Champagne in Russia! Russia loves you and Sweden too. Leandro..you stupid italian. Shut up your moth and drive your rusty Fiat Panda!

#34 Leandro on 04.30.09 at 4:56 pm

HaHa. In russia, nobody knows your cheap white wine. Dont try to trick somebody here.

#35 dimitrij on 05.12.09 at 6:35 am
