Grower's Champagne for a Special Valentine's Day

Grower's Champagne for a Special Valentine's Day

If there's ever a time of year to splurge on the fancy Champagne, Valentine's Day is it. There's something magical about a really good bottle of bubbly, and this Champagne from Vilmart fits the bill. Plus, it's a great way to get around any "no gifts" rules that you and your significant other might have.

From the Montagne de Reims sub-region of Champagne, this sparkler has a mix of chardonnay and pinot noir grapes that are barrel-fermented. The Champagne has notes of citrus and almond, along with mint and a "precise minerality," thanks to the chalky limestone of the region.

Keep in mind that this isn't a Champagne meant for mixing, so skip the French 75s, mimosas, bellinis, and sorbet floats, and just enjoy this bubbly on its own. Of course, fancy glassware is always appropriate.
