Pop Fizz Clink - Champagne for the Holidays
For thousands of years, Champagne has been the universal emblem of good fortune. What better way to mark the dawning of a new year than toasting with this celebratory elixir.
Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec Champagne
Like Tiffany’s blue, the yellow Clicquot label is one of the most iconic in all the world. A delightful crowd pleaser with its creamy mouth feel, the yeastiness on the nose invokes memories of buttery pound cake and crème brulee. Tastes of praline and honeyed stone fruits on palate give it a subtle sweetness.
Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial
Sometimes only pink will do. Fruity and full bodied, this sparkling rosé is the perfect balance between sweet and dry, with juicy notes of strawberries, citrus, and cotton candy.
Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne
Medium-bodied with a depth and finesse that go way beyond the price point. The warm scents of spice-laden, baked apple pie dominate the nose. The 60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir of estate-grown fruit brings a complexity with a lively mix of orange peel, tangerine, yellow cherry and hints of marzipan on the palate.
Although technically not a champagne but a sparkling wine, this soft sweet bubbly from Northern Italy is worth noting. The beautiful etched floral bottle reflects the bouquet of honeysuckle and elderflower on the nose. The delicate flavors of white peach, vanilla bean and orange blossom make it the ideal accompaniment to New Year’s Day mimosas.
