Christmas Champagne

Gift BasketsMany people enjoy champagne breakfasts at Christmas and choosing the right champagne all depends on your particular tastes.

Celebrating Christmas is different for every family and many people celebrate it while enjoying a glass of bubbly. Choosing a Christmas Champagne comes down to personal preference, but if you have no idea what to look for when purchasing a bottle of champagne for Christmas, you could very well come away from the local store with a lousy bottle that tastes terrible.

Many people enjoy a champagne cocktail on Christmas morning and a great one to enjoy includes mixing the champagne with fresh blood orange juice if you can find it, pink grapefruit juice, or peach juice. If you cannot afford a good bottle of champagne to enjoy Christmas morning, then a good bottle of Spanish Cava, such as Millennium Cava or Marks & Spencer Cava is a good choice and tastes wonderful in your Christmas morning cocktail.

If you want a light, aperitif champagne to enjoy at Christmas time, you can try any of the own-label supermarket champagnes. They are just as good as the more expensive bottles and they are considerably less expensive. A good Blanc de Noir or Marks & Spencer Oudinot Champagne is a good light choice. Non-vintage champagnes are also very popular and you can purchase a bottled usually for a good price. If you prefer a medium body champagne for Christmas, go for a Moet & Chandon NW, or Mumm Cordon Rouge that tastes like an ice cream soda.

Choosing a champagne for Christmas can also be a daunting task if you are unsure of what you are looking for. Some producers offer holiday taste testing and this is a great opportunity for you to try out a variety of different styles and flavors in order to find one that suites your palate. While one person may enjoy a pink champagne, someone else may not. Taste testing champagnes is the best way to go in order to find the one that you like the best.

If you cannot attend a champagne taste testing, ask the opinion of your local package store clerk. They will be able to tell you what is selling well, what other customers have said about the champagne, and what is in the price range that you have set for yourself. Of course, serve your champagne chilled for the best flavor possible and get ready to get the bubbles up your nose. That is half the fun of drinking champagne no matter what color, flavor, or cocktail you decide to put your champagne in.
