Normally I won't spend much money on a bottle of bubbles, but every once in awhile I think it's worth it to spring for the real deal. It is actually illegal to call a sparkling wine "champagne" unless it is from the French region Champagne. Moet & Chandon easily justifies its place on the list of best-selling non-vintage champagnes in the world. Well-balanced with hints of ripe pear, this champagne is just off-dry with a lovely clean finish. Save it for a special occasion that demands just the right toast. $32 at Costco.
