Ugh. None. One sip of any kind of champagne is all it takes to give me a headache for three days.

Sparkling cider for me and the wife, as usual.

Funny, that's right on the top of our list too, we have several bottles (like six or seven) of the domaine carneros stuff and wanted to pop the brute rose this year.

I have 2 favorite cheapies. The first is Louis Roederer. It goes for about $17. Rated 90 or 91 in Spectator.

The second is Gloria Ferrer. This is even cheaper at $13. Rated the same as above; but tastes even better.

While these won't linger like Dom, for the price, you can't beat the taste.

Note, if I were with any of you, I'd be drinking Lanson Black Label Brut $28. The NY Times and Wall Street Journal both raved about them.

I wish I could find a way to keep the Gloria stuff in the house, that doesn't last long at all. Funny, all those wineries are like a mile from each other, talk about a great growing region.

If as lucky as last year, I'll be drinking a 1959 Drappier. It was lovely.

Drat, and I was just in Michigan. Well, we're spending new year's eve with friends and we'll probably drink a lot of red (Cotes du Rhone) throughout the evening and not mind when we drink something awful like Korbel at midnight.

Jacques Selosse Brut Rose NV, currently no longer available in the US - have 4 bottles stashed away.

Would love to find the Deutz in the US - had that last year for New Years in Paris, along with Cristal, Dom and a third - might have been a Winnie, but after four bottles we lost track.....

Cheers,
Jeff
