    A tiny, fragile-seeming chanteuse with the voice of a fallen angel, the woman who immortalisedboth La Vie en Rose and Non, Je ne Regrette Rien was born on this day in 1915 into the type of family of which Lifetime miniseries are made.

    Abandoned by her junkie mother, Edith Piaf would grow up in her grandmother's brothel, learn stagecraft from her 5-foot tall acrobat father, lose her only child when she was just 19, wrangle a bewildering cavalcade of lovers, and, before her tragic and early death, become France's national diva and greatest international musical export.

    Even today, the woman whose delicate frame gave her the name "La Môme Piaf" (the little sparrow) inspires movies, books and countless tribute albums. We are celebrating her memory and her work with a Rose Memoire, based on effortlessly elegant rosé champagne.
