No celebration would be complete without a bottle of champagne worthy of such important celebrations. In family or friendly gatherings, these champagnes will make up for the party.

These recommendations by Françoise Peretti will know how to accompany your palate during these holidays.

 

Best champagne for Christmas Eve

To accompany a Christmas dinner the best choice is a champagne Blanc de Blancs to start with as an aperitif. It is bright and floral and marries very well with seafood canapés. For example, blinis with salmon, goat cheese, or shrimp cocktail.

Then, you can serve an exclusive vintage with your dinner. The more complex the origin of the vintage, the better. In other words, it will be more likely to perfectly complement the powerful flavors of a Christmas dinner. For example, roasts and gravy.

 

Best champagne for New Year’s Eve

For this moment of celebration and meeting with several people, it is preferable to have a larger bottle. For example, a magnum of vintage champagne, that is the equivalent of two 75 cl bottles. Also, you can choose a jeroboam, equivalent to four 75 cl bottles.

Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
