Already the Champagne of cosmopolitan addresses, Monte Carlo will have its innate effervescence enhanced with the launch of Dom Pérignon’s pop-up suite at Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, now through through May 31. The palatial grande dame’s 2,260-square-foot Suite 321 will be transformed into an aesthetically sparkling sanctuary dressed in the bronze-and-black livery that is signature to the celebrated brand of bubbly. And to further tickle the senses, a stay will include an Alain Ducasse–designed five-course dinner paired with a bottle of 1998 Champagne Dom Pérignon P2 (second Plénitude).
Ducasse’s menu (prepared by the hotel’s head chef, Franck Cerutti) will be themed after the characteristics of the wine and will include the intriguing use of iodine, an element noted on the nose of the ’98. Other examples of the winemaker’s mastery at secondary fermentation will also be on hand, as a bottle of its 2006 Champagne is presented on arrival, and the minibar has been made over into a Dom Pérignon wine cellar stocked with vintages usually unavailable to the public.
Additional enticements include daily breakfast, an aperitif at Bar Américain, and round-trip airport transfers by a Mercedes-Benz S-Class limousine. Couples who extend their stay to three nights or more will also be privy to a private tour of the hotel’s renowned wine cellar accompanied by a tasting. Priced for two people, packages for the pop-up suite start at $5,000 per night. (hoteldeparismontecarlo.com)
