The Queerest Glass


For Instant Party: Francis Ford Coppola Winery’s Sofia

The now iconic pink canned Blanc de Blancs has a semi-sweet nectar note to match its peppy packaging. Want to bring on-the-go cheer to any occasion? Pop and pour these babies out.

 

 

For Spirited Game Nights: Taittinger

The classic French champagnes will elevate any game night, adding an extra edge to already fun, festive plans. Try their disco party bottled, tarty noted Nocturne and ease into the sharp-but-light Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs, finishing with the Prestige Rosé, a surprisingly earthy pink drink with an eloquent, twisted dryness.

 

 

For Your Ibiza Beach Boys: Cava Agustí Torelló Mata

Spanish sparklers for Spanish beaches, the Agustí Torelló Mata cavas are a complex carefree Summery treat. Take the petite Bayanus 375s, in brut and rosé: the brut offers apple and pear smoothness for sunny weather while the rosé comes in the same tone with a more honeydew mentality. The Reserva 2010 is an effervescent cinnamon underlined sparkler while the fascinating, beautifully bottled Kripta is a well aged, tasty spiced apple treat.

 

 

For The Steamy Night In: Luc Belaire

A new take on French champagnes, Luc Belaire’s two staple bottles remind you why champagne can be so sexy: because it's elegant enough for foreplay and afterplay. Try Belaire Rosé before, as it’s a somewhat sweet and funky bubble bomb for midnight imbibing, and pick things up later with Belaire Brut, a more complex, floral grapefruity sparkler that will keep you cozy all night.

 

 

For The Brunch Boys: Rotari

The early morning bunch are going to want some bubbles to go with their brunch—and Rotari offers a subtle solution for that. The Italian vinter has two sparkling wines to offer: the Blanc de Blancs Brut, a buttercreamy well balanced sipper, and the blended Pinot Noir / Chardonnay Rosé, a more serious and earthy red fruit twinkle.
