Fine Wine Gifts: Best Bubble Bets

Fine Wine Gifts: Best Bubble Bets

by Westgarth Wines December 20, 2018

If you are looking to splurge on sparkling wine for your loved ones, Forbes has some solid suggestions--exciting Champagnes that were recently released! We had to wait an extra year for the 2008 Dom Perignon, and it is a worthy investment as the last wine made by Richard Geoffrey who was chef de cave for three decades. If you prefer pink the 2005 rosé is showing well, as is the Veuve Cliquot La Grande Dame 2008 rosé. Looking beyond France, consider England and Italy. The Chapel Down Vintage 2001 Three Graces is a good bet, and rumor is Chapel Down was served at William and Kate’s royal wedding. From Italy look for Rotari, a Trentodoc bubbly that will surprise and delight.
