Top 10 champagnes (and sparkling wines) for New Years

There is no better beverage at New Years Eve than champagne. (Actually, I might claim there is no better beverage at any time of the year). The real stuff, from Champagne, France. Here are a few favorites that won't only get your juices flowing pre-dinner, but that can also handle a bit of food. Believe it or not, champagne is an excellent food wine! I have also thrown in a few good sparkling wines to pop at midnight. Because, let's be honest here, at that point there aren't many of us who can still tell (or care about) the difference...

Presented in a rough order from simpler bubblies to ultimate luxury.

Happy New Years!

I'm glad to see the Moët&Chandon group still has some go to them. This sparkling wine from NZ can compete with basic champagnes, with lovely acidity, fine bubbles and some yeasty notes. The price in the US (or UK) is nearly twice as much a my second homeland Sweden so it's not as crazy a value as over there but still better than most Californian sparkling wines at the same price point.
