Sunday June 3rd, Moët & Chandon decided to mark the halfway of the tournament by organizing an intimate cool party In The Village.
As soon as I arrived at the Moët Hennessy lounge few minutes before 8pm, I could feel the friendly summery vibe spreading all over the place. Parisian familiar faces are chatting happily, they all seem glad of this reunion, the Moët Family reunion.
The evening started by a VIP, behind the scenes tour, giving the guests a privileged access to restricted areas of the stadium. Such as the players gallery in the Basement of Suzanne Lenglen’s court.
Later on, beauty queens, actors, gastronomic chefs, tv presenters and bloggers were walked to one of the village’s rooftops.
Parisian sky granted us with a lovely pink sunset, making the atmosphere ideal for the fine wine degustation! Bottles of 2008 and 2009 millesimes were waiting for us to be popped!
The stylish crowd appreciated the welcoming ambiance and the stellar view! A moment later, we were called to head back to the Hennessy lounge, so we can enjoy Potel et chabot’s refined diner buffet!
It only took few minutes to witness the gallery’s transformation into a playground! Former Miss France Marine l’Orphelin and Flora Coquerel customized deliciously their own ice cream sticks, at the magnum stand. The Roland Garros hats were flying all over the place like frisbees. Selfies and snaps documented the crazy vibes under the #moetmoment hashtag!
By the end of the evening, I ended up having a cool chat with the rising actor Corentin Fila over one last glass of Moët. We talked about tennis, his passion for boxing, and cinema! He played in my favorite André Techiné movies: “quand on a 17ans”
After this magical soirée, I left the stadium with sparkles in my eyes, from another #RG18 enriching experience!
