It’s party sea­son – a great rea­son to in­dulge in a fine Cham­pagne like chilled Dom Pérignon Vin­tage (price on re­quest). Each vin­tage wine is cre­ated from the best grapes grown in a sin­gle year, so it’s a unique cre­ation that ex­presses the char­ac­ter of both that year and of Dom Pérignon. Made to ex­act­ing stan­dards which in­clude at least eight years of elab­o­ra­tion in the cel­lars, the wine em­bod­ies the per­fect bal­ance of its la­bel.

Cel­e­brate in style with the re­cently launched, Veuve Clic­quot Rich Rosé (R900) Cre­ated ex­pressly for mixol­ogy, this bold and ver­sa­tile cham­pagne al­lows you to cre­ate your own play­ful drink­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Best en­joyed chilled over some ice and fresh in­gre­di­ents like lime, pineap­ple, gin­ger or tea.

Closer to home, a Méth­ode Cap Clas­sique (MCC), the Pon­grácz Blanc de Blancs (mean­ing “white of whites”) (R180) is a won­der­ful choice. This 100% Chardon­nay beat some 1 677 en­tries to be crowned the over­all cham­pion wine at the 2018 Ver­i­tas Awards Show. Savour the bright, zesty cit­rus aro­mas of this in­tensely fruity MCC, which of­fers an al­lur­ing creami­ness and pairs well with just about ev­ery­thing.
