The last bottle in the cellar of 2004 Dom Pérignon Iris van Herpen limited edition. Champagne is there to be enjoyed - not gather too much dust. The Clicquot and Pol both looked good too. Our photo

Ever wondered why the Cristal bottle is clear? Folklore has it that Alexander II, Tsar of Russia requested Louis Roederer to create a Cuvée with clear glass and a flat bottom for a special dinner in 1876. He was afraid of being assassinated and felt the clear bottle and flat bottom would making it impossible to conceal an explosive device. 🍾💣. Photo by @wine_curator

Icons never become outdated. The subtle evolution of the Perrier-Jouët Belle Èpoque bottle (1996 left, 1976 right). My millennium (New Year’s Eve, 1999) Champagne was the 1990 Belle Èpoque. Exceptional wine. Photo by @bubbelgubben

The unmistakable Nicolas Feuillatte Cuvée Palmes d’Or. The bottle design is said to be modelled on Nicolas’ love for a young Opera singer, and her signature black pearls she wore on stage. Elegant, sublime and unforgettable. Bought a magnum of the 1990 a few years ago that was exceptional. Photo by @simply.wines

Few Champagne brands have achieved cult status amongst drinkers and wine journalists around the world. Krug. Truly unique approach and challenging the norms. Promoting Krug + Fried Chicken was genius, demystifying food and Champagne marching. My favourite Krug ritual is done by small iconic Adelaide, (Australia) pub who serve Krug in special beer glasses. I was fortunate to have taken @krugoli to @exeterhotel_adl for his first ‘Krug in a butcher glass’ ritual back in 2013. Now the pub has limited edition Krug beer glasses to commentate this unique experience. Photo by journos and Krug lovers @stockwine @nickryanwine @thedeanofchampagne @stevedundon_xs and @krugoli

Veuve Clicquot Vintage 2008, Vintage Rosé 2008 and Extra Old, a relatively new addition to the Clicquot stable. This Extra Brut (3g/L dosage) is comprised of reserve wines from ‘88, ‘96, ‘06’, ‘08,’09 and ‘10 then aged on lees in vats for 3 years followed by another 3 years on lees in bottle. True craft. Complex and alluring. Photo by @allycasey

Moët Ice Imperial Rosé. There were plenty of critics of Moët when they first started promoting Nectar Impérial (higher dosage Champagne, served on ice). Then they launched Ice Imperial and Champagne “designed to be poured over ice”. Well this proved successful and other houses followed suit. Innovation in Champagne consumption or gimmick?.
