Question: What Champagne should I buy?
Answer: Somewhat surprised by so many enquiries asking which Champagne should I buy for the holiday season. Your scribe expected more interest shown in so many other “bubbles” choice out there from Cava, Prosecco, England’s Sparkling, to underrated British Columbia. Yes go ahead and celebrate with luxury Champagne again for the end of 2019 and ushering in 2020. Big brands still dominate but growers are making some headway. The monopoly of British Columbia Liquor Distribution has several non-vintage blends on sale till month end with a $5 discount including vibrant Piper-Heidsieck Cuvee Brut $59.99, drier Pierre Paillard Les Parcelles Bouzy Grand Cru $62.99, lively Taittinger Brut $64.99, consistent Louis Roederer Brut Premier $68.99, and rich Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve $68.99. My first pick is to order from Marquis Wine Cellars in Vancouver for the newly arrived outstanding vintage 2012 Paul Bara Grand Millesime Bouzy Grand Cru disgorged 05/19 for $86.86 less a 10% discount for 6 bottles or more – plus they have some other Grower Champagnes.
