Champagne, the flagship drink of the end of year celebrations, reveals its most beautiful and prestigious vintages. Here are 5 champagnes to taste without further delay to please yourself during the New Year’s Eve.
Vintage 2015 by Pol Roger
Under its British guise, the Pol Roger House offers champagnes with a singular coating. Vintage 2015 is a sure value, which will be one of the stars of your holiday meals if you opt for noble dishes or poultry in sauce. (75 € the bottle)
1522 Extra-Brut 2015 by Philipponnat
The 1522 vintage is built around beautiful terroirs, classified as Grands Crus, located around the Marne commune of Aÿ. The Philipponnat house does not stop progressing from a qualitative point of view. Precise and delicate texture, spicy frame, everything is gathered for an exceptional moment. The wines of the house go wonderfully well with festive dishes, seafood and poultry in cream sauce. (81 € per bottle)
Palmes d’Or 2008 by Nicolas Feuillatte
We can salute the work of Guillaume Roffiaen, director of vineyards and wine for four years, who knew how to transform this emblematic cuvée of Nicolas Feuillatte, cooperative house located in Chouilly. A long ageing and a meticulous choice of the dosage liqueur give this Palmes d’Or 2008 (a very good vintage in Champagne) a breathtaking brightness and intensity. (130 € the bottle)
La Grande Année 2014 at Bollinger
La Grande Année is undoubtedly one of the most representative cuvées of this Aÿ house. After fermentation in oak barrels and maturation under cork, the bottles are disgorged at 8 grams, a dosage that allows the champagne to unfold its so singular characteristics. (145 € the bottle)
Louis Salmon, Blanc de blanc 2008 by Billecart-Salmon
We love the sharp, crystalline acidity of Billecart-Salmon champagnes. This 100% Chardonnay is an ode to precision. It has a chiseled structure, perfectly balanced and an aromatic framework very focused on citrus fruits with some notes of spring flowers (160 € per bottle)
