Author: Nicole Adler Date Posted:13 December 2016
Do you need some Christmas gift hampers containing a good bottle of liquor? Then be sure to read our overview below, which contains information about the best gourmet gift hampers for the holiday season. Read on to find out more about these delightful gift hampers for 2016.
The Deluxe Office Share Xmas Basket – Piper-Heidsieck & Cape Mentelle
Our Deluxe Office Share Xmas Basket is the largest hamper in our range of gift hampers. The hamper is specifically designed for the corporate world, because this Christmas hamper is the ideal gift for your employees after a good financial year.
Inside these deluxe gift baskets, recipients can find two exquisite bottles of liquor. The first bottle is a genuine Piper-Heidsieck champagne. The second bottle is one of the newest additions to our range of gift baskets and chocolate hampers – the Cape Mentelle Shiraz.
Established in 1785, Piper-Heidsieck is a brand that is known across the globe. Like other high-end champagnes, the champagne is made with grapes from various growing areas, which adds a lot more complexity to the champagne. Of course, the winemaker also contributes to the quality of the champagne, which is in this case Régis Camus, who has been crowned sparkling winemaker of the year for the eighth time in 2013.
The Cape Mentelle Shiraz inside our deluxe gift baskets cannot be underestimated either, because this shiraz has more French influences than you might think. Even though this shiraz is made in Australia, the winemaker bases the blend on wines from the French Rhone Valley region. Therefore, the shiraz and the champagne inside these gift baskets will match anyone’s need for refined French liquor.
The Christmas Delights Hamper – Devil’s Corner Pinot Noir
Our gourmet gift baskets are not the only gifts that contain a fine bottle of wine, champagne or other liquor, because our chocolate hampers contain some good liquor from time to time as well. One of our chocolate hampers – the Christmas Delights Hamper – contains a bottle of 2014 Devil’s Corner Tasmanian Pinot Noir, a cold climate pinot noir that most wine collectors love to have in their wine cellar.
The 2014 Devil’s Corner Pinot Noir is an award-winning wine from Northern Tasmania, receiving a gold medal at the 2013 Royal Adelaide Wine Show. The pinot noir is characterised by a predominantly fruit-driven blend, intertwined with layers of dusty cherry, integrated spices and subtle oak. Therefore, this pinot noir is certainly one of the more interesting pinot noir releases on the market today.
Aside from our chocolate hampers, you will find this pinot noir in other gift baskets at the Hamper Emporium. Of course, we also have other chocolate hampers and gift baskets containing more wines from the Brown Brothers range, so be sure to look at them all to make the best decision.
The Pure Indulgence Hamper – Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial NV
Our Pure Indulgence Hamper is not only the most popular hamper for female recipients, because this hamper is also a good choice for female recipients who like to try luxurious champagne. Inside this Pure Indulgence Hamper, customers can find a bottle of Moet & Chandon, which is undoubtedly one of the most recognisable champagnes in the world.
The Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial embodies the house style of the French Moet & Chandon champagne house. Therefore, it is no surprise that this champagne is also the flagship of their entire range. The Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial is a popular aperitif at various high society events, but is also served in many restaurants across the world.
Moet & Chandon uses more than a hundred different wines to create this flagship champagne. From those wines, approximately 20 to 30% are reserve wines, so consumers can certainly expect adequate complexity and diversity in this champagne blend. In general, the Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial NV Champagne contains 30 to 40% pinot noir, 30-40% pinot meunier and 20 to 30% chardonnay, which leads to an interesting colour, aroma and palate.
The Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial is characterised by a golden colour, but still maintains some distinctive green highlights in its blend. The bouquet of this champagne is also quite distinctive, featuring the vibrant aroma of green apples, citrus, white flowers and many mineral nuances that make this champagne a true gem from the French champagne region.
Naturally, the most important aspect of a good champagne is the palate and its ability to blend with the aroma and colour. Fortunately, the Moet & Chandon meets all expectations with its generous yet subtle palate of white-fleshed fruits, citrus, gooseberry and a fine bubble that leaves champagne lovers wanting more.
Recipients who receive a bottle of this champagne as a gift will find many suitable food pairings for the Moet & Chandon. The champagne house recommends trying the Moet & Chandon with sea foods such as sushi, scallops, oysters and white fish. However, this champagne also works well with white meats and numerous white fruits.
