To celebrate the summer season, Moët & Chandon has announced its return to the 2020 ASB Classic with the coveted Moët & Chandon Ice Rocks Lounge. This luxury poolside champagne lounge is set to once again be the central hub of all off-court action at the tennis this summer.
Returning for the seventh year as the official champagne sponsor of the tournament, the Moët & Chandon Ice Rocks Lounge channels the sophistication and chic atmosphere of a Malibu Beach Club, complete with a poolside oasis.
The champagne lounge will be located at the centre of the tournament’s entertainment precinct, ‘The Serve’, and will be across two levels with an upper dining and bar level; set under alfresco pergolas and a lower poolside area; for lounging and watching all the on-court action on the big screens.
The Moët & Chandon Ice Rocks Lounge will serve, for the first time in New Zealand, Moët & Chandon Ice Impérial Rosé; the world’s first rosé champagne especially made to be enjoyed over ice.
Described as the closest thing to capturing the flavours of a golden pink sunset within a bottle, Moët & Chandon Ice Impérial Rosé will be served exclusively at the ASB Classic.
Moët & Chandon Ice Rocks Long Lunch
The Lounge will also play host to the glamorous Moët & Chandon Ice Rocks Long Lunch at the 2020 ASB Classic. Guests will be treated to a stylish afternoon of fresh cuisine, ice cold Moët and exciting entertainment, all poolside and set to the modern pink and white tones of the highly anticipated Moët & Chandon Ice Impérial Rosé.
Attendees at the Moët & Chandon Ice Rocks Long Lunch will be among the first to enjoy the champagne’s fruity and vibrant bouquet which has been paired to complement a delicious set menu showcasing a selection of fresh sashimi and seafood.
With ice being a key element of Moët Ice Imperial Rosé, guests will be treated to a live ice carving demonstration before adding the ice directly to their goblets along with fresh summer condiments including fresh mint, lemon or grapefruit, a cucumber peel or a slice of ginger.
The Moët & Chandon Ice Rocks Long Lunch will have an all-white and rosé theme, so all guests will be encouraged to don their best tennis whites and incorporate pops of pink into their outfit.
“The Moët & Chandon Ice Rocks Lounge will be the perfect combination of what the tournament’s off-court experience is all about; championship tennis, long summer days, delicious food and of course, ice-cold Moët & Chandon to celebrate,” says Juliet McInnes, Senior Brand Manager, Moët & Chandon.
“We are excited to not only bring back the Moët & Chandon Long Lunch event, as this has become a fan-favourite, but to finally treat New Zealanders to Moët & Chandon Ice Impérial Rosé, the new drink of the summer season!”
Guests are invited to experience all the action live at the ASB Classic, 6 January 2020 -18 January 2020 from the Moët & Chandon Ice Rocks Lounge, which can be accessed by all tickets and ground passes. Please note the Moët Ice Rocks Lounge is R18+ only.
