Korbel Champagne Brut

12% ABV

Come New Year's Eve there's some pressure to pick out the perfect bottle of bubbly. With so many to choose from it's easy to become confused. Here's a tip: Stick with Korbel. The Brut is a California champagne that's smooth and refined, balanced and light-tasting. Spritely aromas of citrus and cinnamon roll lead into crisp citrus flavors and vanilla with just a hint of strawberry.

Don't think this bottle should be kept corked until the clock strikes 12. The award-winning champagne pairs well with chicken, seafood, and pizza as well as with fruits and mild cheese, so we suggest popping it open early in the evening.

If you're looking to get creative, think about making a champagne cocktail. Shake one ounce of Woodford Reserve bourbon and two ounces of blueberry juice with ice and strain into a martini glass and top off with Korbel for a sparkling potable.
