Over the years, champagne has become a synonym for celebration. This unique bubbly wine from France can be seen in all movies whenever they celebrate New Year. It is also found in sports championship victories, wedding ceremonies and all other important personal moments, such as a life-changing career move or a birthday celebration. But which champagne is the right one to celebrate the New Year?
How to get the Right Bottle of Champagne
Choosing wine can be difficult, even when it is a bottle of champagne. That is why it is so important to have someone that can counsel you. It is particularly important when it comes to celebrating such an event as New Year’s Eve, since it will usually be shared between many guests, as it is a moment most of us like to spend with as many friends as possible.
A Little Background: Where Does Champagne Come From?
Located in the beautiful northern edge of France (around 100 miles east of Paris), the Champagne wine region is the famous area known for producing this sparkling white wine that we all adore. The laws of the European Union (and most other countries) actually reserve the term “Champagne” exclusively for wines that come from the Champagne region in France.
The region, which developed a prestige reputation for quality wine production back in the Middle Ages, is divided into 5 Champagne producing districts: Aube, Côte des Blancs, Côte de Sézanne, Montagne de Reims, and Vallée de la Marne.
This year, to find the right bottle of champagne for your New Year celebration, you should look for a specialist online that will answer your questions and explain the differences. Millesima is a French e-boutique, which also has a New York store. When it comes to the French region of champagne and its wine, they have the knowledge, the experience and a large selection, which will be helpful in your quest to find the right champagne bottles for you and your friends.
Three Suggestions to Celebrate New Year
- Dom Perignon 2010
Dom Perignon is the only champagne with only vintage bottles. That is because they don’t produce in years where the grapes aren’t good or sufficient enough, while others compensate by mixing it with other years. There is no doubting the quality of their product. This 2010 vintage with its creamy flavour and notes of white flowers, berries and toasted pastry will be the perfect champagne to toast away the difficult year, which was 2020.
- Ruinart Blanc de Blancs
Some champagne lovers appreciate those made with 100% chardonnay grapes. With this Ruinart, they will be enchanted. It offers so much to the palate, with notes of honey, almond and fragrant fruits such as peach and green apple that it will add to the magic when the clock strikes twelve.
- Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve
At midnight, it will be time to bring a new breath of life to your guests, so you can keep the celebration going into the night. This champagne is bright and zesty, which is just what you will need to bring new energy. It is also unique, with notes of apricot mixing with baked bread and red fruit. It will definitely provide an unforgettable moment, as 2021 finally arrives.
