Moet & Chandon Imperial
When you are looking for a mate with your dinner, you can’t go wrong with this Cuvee. Explore flavors of baked bread and toasted nuts sourced from a mix of Pinot Meunier varietals and pinot noir in almost equal proportions. It is a part of this brand’s famous recipe for great drinks. Moet & Chandon Imperial easily pairs with your meals, especially roast chicken.
Bollinger Special Cuvee
You might recognize this champagne brand from several James Bond movies. The reason it is his favorite champagne brand might include the classic red currant notes, the baking spice, and crème brûlée. It is the perfect match for a seafood dinner and, of course, other meals like the favorite roast turkey of all festive seasons.
Dom Perignon 2008
The brand of Dom Perignon is one of the better recognized and loved champagnes. Aptly named after the Benedictine monk who was known as the father of champagne and style, this brand never disappoints on creamy flavors and exotic taste. The Dom Perignon 1936 was the first to appear with a rich blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Dom Perignon 2008 is no different from most cuvees of the brand. It is pure excellence. Its creamy flavor comes off with hints of berries, white flowers, and toasted pastry; a sure way to keep the festive spirits high during holiday seasons.
Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label
This champagne is named for the Grand Dame of Champagne. Veuve translates as widow and is befitting considering the backstory. Madame Barbe-Nicole Clicquot revived her husband’s failing wine business after his death and became widely known as the Grand Dame of Champagne. She transformed the brand with great drinks, such as this Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label. Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label is one of those drinks that suit every occasion.
G.H. Mumm Brut Grand Cordon
Do you love races? Then here is a champagne for you. G.H. Mumm Brut Grand Cordon is a popular part of Kentucky Derby races and offers just the right taste of freshness, fruitiness, and the all-time favorite hint of fresh baked bread flavor. Keep it by your side for a sip now and then. If you are looking for pointers on fitting in or getting comfortable during a race, a bottle can come in handy.
