If you’re a Champagne fan, there’s nothing quite as nice as getting a fine bottle as a gift. This Prestige Rose from Champagne Taittinger would be a glorious gift for a fine wine lover this holiday season. Non-vintage, it is made from 70 per cent Pinot Noir and 30 per cent Chardonnay, and would pair well with smoked salmon, Comte cheese or roast duck. 

Trivia for you: this Champagne house is family-owned and the family is very much involved in the business. Managing director Clovis Taittinger works with his sister Vitalie Taittinger, ambassador of style, and their father, Pierre Emmanuel Taittinger. About $108.
