On Friday we brought you Festive fizz from Franschhoek, and today we bring you our favourite festive French Champagnes to toast in Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
See 2013 through rosé tinted glasses – filled with Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier of course! Expect intense fruit forward flavours – ‘plunge into a basket of freshly picked red berries: strawberries, morello cherries, black currants and raspberries.’
We love famous Champagne house, Taittinger. Our festive choice of bubbly would have to be the classic, Brut Réserve a chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier blend, the Champagne is everything one should be, elegant yet wickedly creamy.
See in the New Year like a king, or queen, with the Pommery Brut Royal. This Champagne is vivacious with toasty structure, and is redolent of pears and green apple acidity.
And of course, what celebration would be complete without Moët & Chandon? For a Christmas bubbly with a difference try the Moët Ice Impérial, perfect for our Southern Hemisphere Christmas as it’s been created to be enjoyed over ice.
