This lattice bottle, which is encased by a copper suit of armor, might be the most stunning bottle of wine we've ever seen — and it's sure to be the talk of the table. What's more, that jacket isn't just a gimmick; the casing (made from 100 percent recycled scrap copper) helps to keep the Champagne colder for longer and easier to grip when pouring. It's recyclable after use, too — that is, if you can bear to part with the bottle in the first place.
But what's in the bottle is what matters — and thankfully, it's quality stuff. Made from 60 percent Pinot Noir and 40 percent Chardonnay grapes from France's Epernay region, this bubbly has a yeasty, bread-like bouquet, light body, and a zippy finish. At about $80 it doesn't run cheap, but it's a hostess and holiday gift easily rolled into one. What's the most standout bottle of bubbly you've ever had?
