Champagne and celebrations will be linked forever, and popping the cork comes with exuberance, the sight of bubbles as they rise to the surface.
For these holidays, especially New Year’s, say cheers to these ideal champagnes for a festive celebration.
Four champagnes for the new year
The house: Moët & Chandon
With more than 279 years of history, Moët & Chandon has become a social status among certain circles, associated with luxury and high-class events. For 2022, the French Grande Maison that brought champagne to the world has launched a special edition gift box featuring its Brut Impérial, Nectar Impérial or Rosé Impérial.
Price: Choose between; Imperial Brut, R649.95 Imperial Nectar, R749.95 or Imperial Rosé, R799.95
Maison Ruinart has a reputation for innovation and “environmental practices”. They have created a gift box that is recyclable, made from 99% paper and soil with a 60% CO₂ reduction.
The sensual shape of the case refers to the way the masters (the best) wrap their bottles in a white napkin, which can be used to better preserve the champagne and can be dipped in ice for effective cooling.
