Is there such a thing as a “baby” Cristal? Not really. But let me offer two feeble answers. First of all, consider Louis Roederer Brut Premier. That’s the excellent, entry-level, non-vintage Champagne from the same house. It costs about $70 a bottle. Not cheap, but compared with Cristal it may sound like a steal. Roederer also happens to make less expensive and very fine bubbly in California. Their top sparkling wine from that property, Roederer Estate l’Hermitage Brut, is superb, at about $55. Some people have suggested it comes close to Cristal in quality. One of the first vintages I tried, back in the mid-1990s, came pretty close. The lower-end Roederer Estate Brut costs about $29 and is splendid, too.
Subjects were then given the same amount of drink (amount adjusted for body weight) and then tests of logic, cordination and reaction speeds were administered every 10 minutes as well as breathalyzer tests.

How many people reading and/or posting on this story realize that what most people call Chanpagne is really sparking wine? All Champagnes are sparkling wines but not all sparkling wines are Champagnes. Champagne comes from a specific region in France known as the Champagne region(who’d have thought). It is made with grapes indigenous to that region and is produced using some specific techniques.

Weddings are meant to be a day of celebration, and there’s no better way to rejoice than with a great bottle of wine. Treat the bride and groom to a wedding gift that will stand out long after the wedding is over by gifting them a membership to The Premier Series Wine Club. Each shipment features two limited-production wines from today’s top wineries, which they’ll share together in their new life.
If you are shipping the wine gift directly to your recipient, don’t forget a custom gift note in your package. Also, consider adding a corkscrew or engraved wine glasses. For a true statement, especially for a milestone event like a wedding or retirement, you can ship the wine inside a custom engraved wood wine box for added wow factor.
This is a really nice item for the price. It included all the products as shown. Yes, it did include a lot of filler but nothing was missing. The basket is large, and the presentation is impressive. The only thing wrong was minor: It included a red bow which was a bit crushed. I replaced the bow with a new one from the dollar store for gift-giving. Nonetheless, I was very happy with this gift.
Don’t forget to add a membership to our wine of the month club, or any of our other great monthly clubs, to your bridal registry or wedding registry. Just give us a call at 800-625-8238 and we’ll take care of the rest.

Depends on the recipients and your relationship with them. The easiest and most neutral is to give them a bottle of Champagne ($50 to $250) I like to give Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque because the bottle is so pretty. ($180) This assumes I know and like the happy couple.
The big day deserves a big wine! This Caymus 2013 Magnum is one of our top sellers! Customers say “Caymus, must I say anything else? Find me this wine at this price with free shipping.” Robert Parker scored it 94 points saying “A beautiful ripe, plump, fat and opulent style of Cabernet Sauvignon that Caymus has pioneered, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense purple color, loads of juicy blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, low acidity and no real evidence of oak, but a nice, plush, full-bodied opulence. This is irresistible… Drink it over the next decade or more.”
Actually, it’s not normal to give consumables as wedding gifts, unless you were thinking of giving a bottle (or several) of a wine that would mature into something super-extra special in ten or 15 years. People normally give something useful, even durable, to help the new couple set up a household and have an easier, better, happier life together. In this case, I’d look to see if the couple had established a “gift registry” (a commercial innovation that institutionalizes greed in the form of a wish list or shopping list, but is customary in the USA.) Maybe they’d like a couple of really nice wine glasses, something made with titanium crystal that is rather durable as well as elegant.
This Cremant de Bourgogne is made in Champagne’s neighboring state Burgundy, also obviously well-known for their winemaking prowess. The rose coloring, known as “eye of the swan,” comes from a touch of Burgundy pinot noir that is added to the wine just before bottling. Cremants are generally considered to be the more upscale, better-quality of the French sparkling wines that are not made in Champagne, and this bottle is proof. One has to wonder why the winemakers in Burgundy let their neighbors take all the credit.
I call BS on this article!!! 1) Beer has bubles too, 2) There are some beers that go all the way into 50% alcohol content by volume, 3) We have yet to see a study that actually proves the BS “claim” that “it’s because of the bubbles!”
My Aunt has curated the University Library for almost thirty years, and when she finally decided to retire, I surprised her with an elegant champagne gift basket. Just as she was getting ready for her retirement dinner, the basket was delivered! She and her friends loved the striking presentation, and unpacking it piece by piece was so enjoyable. The spread was beautiful – creamy cheese and crisp, savory crackers, gourmet chocolate… not to mention the bottle of Moet & Chandon! Each bite and sip was such a delight, my Aunt and her friends forgot all about going to dinner. I know I’ll be using GiftTree’s champagne gift basket delivery again very soon.

I ordered this basket for my parents on their anniversary and they loved it! Just be careful with the title (and description) because I was under the impression that it included a bottle of champagne, but it doesn’t!
