Special Occasion Wines Worth The Price


« Prev Next » 14 of 21
The holidays are a time for fun, family, frolicking and, naturally, champagne.  A few years ago, I asked a friend and Sommelier what his favorite grower’s champagne was.  Pierre Peters Blanc de Blanc Champagne ($56) was his immediate reaction.  I absolutely love this wine as evidenced by the multiple blog posts raving about it on Dallas Wine Chick.  In fact, it is one of my favorite special occasion wines, but makes any occasion special.  From the moment that I open it, I’m enthralled with the tiny bubbles and gorgeous effervescence.  As I take my first sip, I love the power and minerality combined with the elegance of this champagne. It has notes of apple, pear, almond, apricot, floral notes, fresh bread, lemon zest and orange with a finish that lasts forever.  It is an expression of its place and has a gorgeous balance.
