Champagne has to be one of the most popular holiday drinks. Almost everyone can afford a bottle and it's fun and cheery. It says celebration like no other drink. And personally - I love it!
But there is a reason champagne is elitist and fancy. There are champagnes that are so fantastic and so pricy that realistically only a few people can afford them. They are not readily available at every corner liquor store and they are available in limited amounts.
So if you are looking for over the top and out of this world look no more. Here is the list that can bring in 2012 with a big bang.
