Though the name champagne already connotes prestige in itself, in giving champagne gifts, it is also a must to know the brands or houses from which your champagne came from. Here’s a list of some of the popular champagne brands or houses that grace lovely champagne gift baskets the world over.
- Moet et Chandon’s Dom Perignon – This champagne has been hailed the King of all Champagnes. It is a cuvee de prestige, which is defined to be a proprietary blend of top calibre for a house. To receive this as a champagne gift is truly an honour in itself worth celebrating.
- Louis Roederer’s Cristal – This champagne is quite a connoisseur’s delight with its refined richness and depth. Also a cuvee de prestige, Cristal was once only offered for the consumption of the Russian Tsar until it was made available to the public through its 1945 vintage. Currently a favourite of celebrities, getting a Cristal as a champagne gift will make you feel like you are worth a million.
- Veuve Clicquot – Another champagne with excellent character, Veuve Clicquot’s edge as a champagne gift is its affordability making it a popular bubbly for almost every occasion and every champagne gift basket. But if going for a more prestigious Veuve Clicquot, try its cuvee de prestige Le Grande Dame, which is named after the nickname of the widow of the house’s founder’s son.
There are many other champagne brands out there for every taste, budget, and fancy. It is up to you and your knowledge of the person you are giving it too to find the best one to put in your champagne gift basket. Just remember, it is not a celebration if there isn’t any champagne to grace the occasion!
