Amidst music, fun and camaraderie, the unique perspective of Laurent Perrier, top class champagne produced in France, came alive in Lagos last Friday as Chief Tunde Onakoya, CEO of TEO Limited, unveiled Grande Siecle, a variant of Laurent Perrier, to a select audience at a special tasting event.

The Grande Siecle outing, which attracted celebrities, captains of industry, trade partners, top flight professionals and business executives took place at Sofitel, the Moore House, Ikoyi, Lagos.

The live performance by a fast rising music star made all the difference for the guests to enjoy life's best moment with highlife songs like Victor Olaiya's 'Omo Pupa' and Lionel Richie's chart buster, 'Easy like Sunday Morning'.

The event was characteristic of Laurent Perrier's vintage bubbly affair as the classy drink flowed freely with natural ambience of the hotel's pool side and sonorous tunes from a live band. According to Onakoya, the champagne night out was informed by his desire to celebrate and reinforce the uniqueness of Grande Siecle's as the king of champagne.

'This particular event is significant for us to unveil Grande Siecle and create brand awareness most especially among top personalities and celebrities. We would like to inform our customers and wine connoisseurs that Laurent Perrier's Grande Siecle is the choice brand and top of the range among competing brands,' he says.

With sparkling stainless steel ice buckets containing crushed ice blocks, the Laurent Perrier's prestige bistro styled bar manned by efficient and eagle-eyed sales executive with TEO Limited, Yussuf Adinoyi Mustapha, the bartender, though stationery and armed with vital accessories was adept at food and beverage operations-chilling bottles in quick succession while guests took their turns with itinerant hotel bar staff filling up glasses and ensuring there was no dull moment in between sips.

The champagne party provided as much fun, toast and exciting moment to rock, share jokes and cultivate business network despite the fact that the available food was mainly cold snacks, pastry, dessert and chili sauce.
