Moët Hennessy is launching Clos19 in the U.S., an online lifestyle retail brand offering exceptional services, products and experiences from the champagnes, wines and spirits “world” of LVMH. The brainchild of Founder and CEO, Stephanie Watine Arnault, Clos19 is the first dedicated luxury champagnes, wines and spirits shopping platform of its kind. Clos19 first launched in the UK in April 2017.
Championing the art of hosting, the design-led brand will provide consumers with access and the opportunity to learn about the exceptional products from the LVMH Group’s champagnes, wines and spirits houses. Furthermore, Clos19 is unique in its innovative offering of experiences that are all curated to enhance the client’s own enjoyment and hosting proficiency.
Welcoming consumers into an extraordinary world, Clos19’s bespoke selection of exclusively curated experiences range from intimate tastings with brand ambassadors and cellar masters to once-in-a- lifetime journeys. The latter rare and unexpected Exceptional Experiences* are crafted by Clos19 to become enduring memories.
In addition to the platform’s Exceptional Experiences are tastings, brand events and additional services. Clients can also visit the vineyards, wineries and distilleries of the Maisons across the world to learn how blends and vintages are created and the best ways to savor them.
Expressed through a unique luxury lifestyle lens, Clos19 will offer more than just the world’s leading luxury champagne, wine and spirits brands from the LVMH portfolio. Whether buying a gift for a loved one, hosting a dinner party for 12 or a wedding for 150, Clos19 guides consumers through the process and offers over-the-phone dedicated specialists providing advice on everything from food pairings and cocktail recipes to glassware and event staff. Brands and products available range from Dom Pérignon, Cloudy Bay, Hennessy and rare limited-edition vintages, to accessories such as a Dom Pérignon Champagne Vasque designed by French designer Martin Szekely and Riedel Champagne Glasses designed exclusively for Krug.
Upon launch in November, Clos19 will be available in the states of New York and California. Other states will follow in the new year. Sales of the Clos19 wine, champagne and spirits portfolio will be made by licensed retailers, facilitated by third-party technology and the delivery service Thirstie, through its independent retailer network.
