It’s been a rough year, so splurging on champagne might be some needed decadence. The best wines of each champagne house are called Prestige Cuvées. Dom Perignon is the Prestige wine of Moet & Chandon. Veuve Cliquot’s is called La Grand Dame. Roederer’s is Cristal. Piper-Heidsieck’s is Rare. Taittinger Prestige Cuvée is called Comtes de Champagne – the Count of Champagne. These wines are the finest sparkling wines in the world. Naturally they are expensive; very expensive. Figure to spend over $100 usually around $150. Some may even top $300. My philosophy is: it’s been such a lousy year, I deserve to treat myself and my friends. What can I say, a little indulgence is a good idea sometimes. Wherever you are, have a wonderful New Year's Eve and a great New Year!
