Food match: grilled fish; roast fowl

Juve y Camps Cinta Purpura Reserva Brut 2008 (Spain)
$17.95 (Vintages #352864)
Straw-coloured with an oily, apple nose. Medium-bodied on the palate, it's crisply dry with elegant apple and pear flavours. A good champagne substitute at an affordable price. ****1/2 (89)
Food match: roast turkey; veal chop

Piper Heidsieck Brut Bodyguard (Champagne)
$54.95 (LCBO #253807)
Looking for that special bottle of Champagne to ring in the new year? Yes, it's costly but it's worth splashing out for a special celebration. This is a stunning bubbly in a sexy red faux-crocodile skin cover. Pale gold in colour with a toasty, yeasty nose, it has a dry, nutty, elegant flavour with citrus acidity that gives it great length. ***** (91)
Food match: smoked salmon; lobster soufflé
