Let’s drink champagne!
Today on October 27, 2023, we celebrate the sparkling, golden bubbles in the glass with which we like to celebrate all year round. It’s Champagne Day!
The fine wines from France, which have always been cultivated, harvested and pressed according to the strictest regulations of the Comité Champagne, make our lives golden: for special occasions, romantic dinners or a sparkling start to the weekend!
Although we can all indulge in a glass more often, champagne is and remains the queen of drinks and always something special. And today we are toasting to it! Bubbles up!
All the champagne houses in France boast their unique wines. From the oldest champagne house in the world, Gosset, to the world-famous Moët & Chandon or Veuve Clicquot, or the boutique houses, such as Perrier Jouët, to many small vintner champagnes that present outstanding bubbles. Although the strict designation of origin limits the amount of champagne in the world, there is an incredible variety that is simply a joy to taste.
For Champagne Day, we’re keeping with Coco Chanel and presenting three of our favorites, because:
“I only drink Champagne on two occasions.
When I am in love and when I am not.”
The Cuvée RSRV Lalou 2008.
Dhe grapes come from Mumm’s oldest vineyard parcels in the Côte des Blancs. Maturation in the cellars for 10 years allows this champagne to fully develop its personality.
Incidentally, the RSRV is based on the fact that cellar masters used to “reserve” the best barrels for special customers and mark the fine wines with ReSeRVé.
Food pairing: Sweet and salty meat dishes, perfect for the fall and Christmas season. With a St. Martin’s goose with red cabbage or game with orange sauce.
Dom Pérignon Vintage 2013.
King of the Queens. Thanks to a good season with a cold, wet spring and a hot, dry summer, the grapes were of outstanding quality. This is reflected in the elegant and full-bodied champagne.
Food pairing: With its perfect balance of
and minerality, it harmonizes with light pasta dishes with white fish or seafood.
Veuve Clicquot Yellow.
The “Widow’s” signature champagne is an all-time classic all over the world and the Arrow edition is the perfect gift for any occasion. The pretty boxes can be personalized with names and the distance to Reims in various colors.
Thanks to its fine lightness and acidity, this cuvée is a popular aperitif for a special evening. Accompanied by blinis with caviar or Balik salmon.
Munich’s best champagne spots
Buffet Kull: As an
Aperitif before dinner or as a sparkling accompaniment to French cuisine with New York flair. The Deutz Brut is served here by the glass as the house champagne – and that always works!
Käfer Bistro in the delicatessen:
A glass of Laurent-Perrier in white or rosé in a cozy bistro atmosphere sweetens every shopping day. Plus: homemade salads from the delicatessen counter or changing specials on the daily menu.
Eduard’s by Breuninger:
The perfect shopping break from early to late. Eduard’s Bar serves breakfast, lunch, aperitifs and after-work dinners with the sophisticated champagnes of Ruinart , among others. Très chic!
Brand new in Munich and already a luxury place to be, Perrier Jouët ‘s fine floral champagne is served in the hotel and in the Brasserie Cuvilliés, the Bar Montez and in the winter garden. It could hardly be more elegant!
Fans of vintner champagnes will get their money’s worth here! The many fine wines in the cellar are immeasurable – how good that you can rely on expert advice and set off on a journey to the small champagne producers.
Say it with champagne! For Christmas, birthdays or just because. Champagne is the most sparkling declaration of love, the most golden thank you and the most unique pleasure.
