The year 2014 has in my opinion been quicker than ever and it is only days left before we have reason to welcome a new exciting year. And even Wineblogg needs time for some relaxation during the upcoming Christmas and New Year's weekend. I am very proud that the blog continues to live and constantly able to find new inspiration in the wine and food world.

Finally ending the year with providing you with recommendations on some bubbly gold nuggets.

La Vida al Camp for 12 euro is this year's bubbly (outside Champagne) on Vinblogg. An organic Cava who was set a great taste impression among our blog readers. So much value for money bubbly that it is impossible to justify to go up 10-15 euro (Swedish prices) to buy a standard champagne that in most cases under deliver.

If you spend 2 euro more you can get Clotilde Davenne Extra Brut Crémant de Bourgogne for 14 euro. This female producer produces a Crémant that is so noble and pure in its nature. Hard to find something better to appreciate if you search for a crispy bubbly filled balanced aromas of apples, bread, chocolate and citrus. Just enjoy ...

Finally, time for the most noble version of them all from my beloved Champagne. Unfortunately most people consume too much of this divine drink at New Years midnight instead of enjoying it both during Christmas dinner New Year's Eve supper. As I write much about Champagne, my advice would be to follow our Champagne tips and in good time purchase for the more formal occasions that occur later in the year.

A producer that I have true passion for is the Champagne Pierre Peters from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. If your more well-stocked wine store have Grand Cru Champagne Les Chetillons I would recommend buying it any day of the week. But Pierre Peters Grand Cru Cuvée de Réserve for only 32 euro (Swedish prices) is a super tasty Champagne that beats every standard Champagne from the big houses with a mile lenght. Dry, bread and fruity flavor with hints of apples, chocolate, nougat and grapefruit makes it very amiable, especially when shared with your loved one.

So now is the time to wish you all MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR. Hope you, our dear reader, will return soon in the new year.
