The Grand Series were each revealed against a backdrop unique to the expressions’ own representation of luxury:
●The Gran Reserva,an indulgent finishing touch to any celebration occasion—was presented ina lush and exotic, but laid-back luxurious setting.
●The Grand Cru was unveiled in a sparkling scene dripping in black and gold to suggest that this exceptional expression will elevate any iconic celebrations without exception.
