Le Sunday Review

Brief: Duplicate the Sunday Review magazine but embrace everything French.


  • To drive sales by increasing purchase of French wine in the UK
  • Raise awareness of new products by showcasing new, exciting and vibrant products

Campaign | Print:
Le Sunday Review, published on Sunday 9 October, was published alongside the standard Sunday Review and took exactly the same format but was given a French spin by The Sunday Review's editorial team.

The 48-page supplement contained advertising from Kronenbourg, Ligne Roset, Moët & Chandon, Le Creuset, French Wines, Eurostar and Renault.  Bonne Maman offered readers the chance to win a competition to spend New Year's Eve in Paris.

Le Sunday Review was designed to act as an urban, cool and accessible guide to French living and was aimed at a new generation of wine drinkers who are often put off by the snobbery surrounding French wine.

Incorporating engaging editorial, glamorous fashion shoots and recipes as well as restaurant and wine reviews, the supplement provided a perfect synergy between the Independent on Sunday reader and the brands involved.
