A Guide to Gifting Champagne and Wine by Vintage
Giving champagne and wine is the easy route to a connoisseur’s heart, and if you’re looking for something extra special – perhaps to commemorate an anniversary, a big birthday, a new baby or an achievement – nothing says celebration more than the gift of a fine vintage.
A Vintage Champagne Gift for Engagements or Weddings
Rosé champagne exudes romance, and if you know a couple who’ve just got engaged, personalised champagne goes that one step further. Add the names of the happy couple to a personalised Moët bottle such as Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial Personalisable Metal GiftBox and they’ll have a keepsake to cherish long after the cork is popped. If you’re considering buying a vintage champagne gift that they’ll remember for years to come, Dom Pérignon Rosé 2006 or Krug Rosé 24ème Édition are the ideal choices.
A Vintage Champagne Gift for Birthdays
Buying a birthday gift for the person who has everything? Choose a vintage champagne that tallies with a birth year – for example, for anyone turning 18 in 2021, choose Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2003.
A Vintage Champagne Gift for an Anniversary
The ideal choice for a wedding anniversary, a vintage champagne gift is a bottle you can savour over a special dinner together or one to keep in the cellar to enjoy later. Glass signifies a third wedding anniversary, which makes gifting a bottle of champagne an inspired idea. Try Ruinart Dom Ruinart Rosé 2007, a prestige rosé cuvée crafted from grapes grown in the grand cru vineyards of the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims. Incredibly fresh and precise, its exceptional complexity will develop with age.
A Vintage Champagne Gift to Celebrate a Birth
Marking the birth of a baby requires special consideration, and champagne that can be stored or cellared until they turn 18 or 21 is the ultimate thoughtful gift. Dom Pérignon Plénitude champagnes were created to age gracefully, having already spent at least 15 years ageing in the cool Dom Pérignon cellars. Dom Pérignon P2 Vintage 1998 or Dom Pérignon P2 Vintage 2002 are two great champagne gifts that will stand the test of time.
A Vintage Champagne Gift to Celebrate a House Purchase
The gift of vintage champagne for a house purchase will keep giving long after the bottle is opened, as people often keep the cork as a memento of the joyous occasion. Send the recipients Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Personalisable City Arrow, complete with the location of their new home on the famed yellow arrow.
