What You'll Be Drinking This Easter Sunday

'Easter is like Brunch where on a Sunday you gather to eat and drink. When joining a group it's good to be easy with what's on the menu, if there is something you want, know to bring it yourself. Our biggest concern is the drinks, while we love a good Bloody Marry, we're a little over Mimosas’, but still want to celebrate with Champagne.

Being the celebratory drink it is, Champagne is perfect for the traditional, joyful festivities of Easter Sunday. Champagne can be a mystery with treasures to be discovered, well hidden from those who don’t know where to look. These secrets are part of the fun to discover.

If you’re unsure as to what to bring this Easter to Brunch look no further than Moet & Chandon’s 2008 Grand Vintage Brut. After aging 7 years in the historic cellars, this is a perfect springtime opening similar to a bouquet of floral notes of linden, honeysuckle and acacia, citrus nuances of bergamot and mandarin orange zest, and dash of anise and green tomato, give way to flavors of just-ripe stone fruit and scents of pastry and almonds with a slight hint of white pepper.

A bright pale yellow with glimmers of green, its first impression on the palate is vivacious and lively, subsequently extending itself, with an invigorating finish and lingering note of citrus fruit. Incredibly versatile and food friendly, Moët Grand Vintage 2008 is a surprising yet excellent way to elevate unexpected pairing dishes, such as truffled French fries, salted popcorn, fried chicken, and many more to go with your Easter meal.

Last night at the  Tribeca Film Festival (TFF), Moët & Chandon celebrated the winners of its 2nd Moët Moment Film Festival, aka “The Minis,” an annual competition committed to inspiring a new generation of artists dedicated to telling their stories through film. Sarah Paulson, Justin Bartha, Paul Schneider, Christine Evangelista and Ryan Eggold were just a few of the guests who gathered at the exclusive McIntosh Townhouse in SoHo to toast the top three winning films and the recipient of the People’s Choice award.

Launched during the 2017 Golden Globes in January, this year’s Moët Moment Film Festival (MMFF) invited young filmmakers across the country to create and submit their own 60-sec film based on the theme “This is Your Moment” – challenging them to capture the joy and spontaneity of living life to the fullest for an opportunity to win a $25,000 film grant from Moët.  Hundreds of incredible short films were entered – ranging in style and subject matter – which were carefully reviewed by a panel of Hollywood industry mavens, including: SAG-nominated actress and Jurassic World star Bryce Dallas Howard, Golden Globe-winning actress and three-time nominee Gina Rodriguez along with David Guillod (producer and CEO/Founder of Primary Wave); Violaine Etienne (cofounder of Serial Pictures in partnership with Anonymous Content); Sharon Badal (VP of filmmaker relations and shorts programming for Tribeca Film Festival), and Kisha Imani Cameron (COO of Ghetto Film School).

The glamorous crowd mingled throughout, sipping Moët Minis, before sitting down to enjoy an extraordinary champagne tasting dinner and intimate viewing of the finalist films. Jane Rosenthal, co-founder of TFF enjoyed Moët under the rooftop canopy, while Sarah Paulson, chatted with the MMFF winners. The Hangover star, Justin Bartha, celebrated date night with wife Lia.

Inspired to create a piece that challenges heteronormative expectations, their stunning 60-sec film explores a non-traditional character and their vibrant lifestyle – proving no film is too short to create a stirring moment. Pascucci and Welles were thrilled and honored to accept the award noting, "the $25,000 grant will open the door for us to explore the topic of marginalized lifestyles in our next film project.”
