If you are short of ideas for gift-giving but loaded with enough big bucks, this should help. French Champagne house (for some reason they all come from France. Maybe it’s the weather!) Piper-Heidsieck and Baccarat have got together to create a limited edition red-varnished wood case featuring two bottles of Piper-Heidsieck and two Château Baccarat flutes. The soft and rich champagnes, 1996 vintage brut and 2006 vintage brut were harvested a decade apart, chosen for the holiday gift box set by Piper-Heidsieck’s award winning Champagne Cellar Master, Régis Camus. Beautiful flutes were designed by celebrated oenologist Bruno Quenioux.
The Holiday Gift Box set sold at $650 a pop, available in the US at all high-end wine stores including Winfield Flynn in New York, Gulf Liquors in Florida, and K&L Wines in California.
