1989 Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne Reserve ($38)

Crisp, yet creamy, complex and elegant, with drifts of fine bubbles and a delicate scent of hazelnuts, this is a Champagne to celebrate the season in impeccable style. And at just $10 to $12 more than Veuve Clicquot's non-vintage brut, depending on where you buy it, it isn't nearly as expensive as it tastes. One of the stars of the vintage.
