I love a quirky Champagne quote … and there have been some fabulous quotes from novelists to screen stars to celebrities and even historical figures in Champagne. Here’s a pick of some of my favourites.
Ironic words from a man who was notorious for his heavy drinking, in fact he was an alcoholic since his college years, and died of a heart attack at the age of 44.
Other authors, writers and playrights that have penned famous Champagne quotes include, Lorraine Holloway White, Noel Coward, Willie Gluckstern, Oscar Wilde, Arnold Bennett, Hester Browne, David Levithan, Charles Dickens, Roman Payne, Honoré de Balzac and Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey.
And then great champagne quotes from beautiful screen stars and fashion moguls … like Coco Chanel, Bette Davis, Brigitte Bardot and Marlene Dietrich.
And let’s not forget these famous Champagne quotes by historical figures like Napoleon Bonaparte, Winston Churchill and Madame de Pompadour …
Some more well-known Champagne quotes by famous figures …
John Maynard Keynes – British Economist
And I’ll finish off with a famous lady of Champagne … Lily Bollinger … the head of Bollinger Champagne from 1941. Born Élisabeth Law Lauriston-Boubers in 1899, she married Jacques Bollinger, grandson of the founder Jacques Joseph Bollinger. She took over the reigns of the Bollinger House when her husband died in 1941 and ran it until 1971. She launched the Bollinger RD vintage in 1961, then the vintage Vieilles Vignes Françaises in 1969.
