Best Bubbly

There’s no better time than the holidays to pop the top on a bottle of Champagne. This season, Jeff McNeice, owner of Dolcetto Wine Room in SouthPark, suggests you make your celebration extra special with an elegant bottle of Duval Leroy Brut Rose Champagne ($66). The drink’s festive pink hue pairs perfectly with seasonal soirees, and its light taste works well with sweet holiday treats and creamy cheeses. "It’s crisp, with a nice sharp bite to it," says McNeice, who suggests enjoying the bottle right in the restaurant with the gourmet cheese platter ($10). 4625 Piedmont Row, 704-295-1111.
