There are just times when it is appropriate to splurge and get a great bottle of wine. The holidays, a new job, a promotion, birthday, well you get the picture. Here are a few wines that are my picks for those special times.
Sparkling wines and Champagne are always on my list of special occasion wines. To be honest I like to drink them to celebrate life. Sometimes things are great, and others they are not so great; so anytime I need to validate my existence and have a bottle of bubbly, I celebrate life. One of my favorite champagnes is Moet & Chandon White Star, another is Pommery Brut Royal. So when champagne is my drink of choice, these are my two standby wines.
