Where to drink discounted Krug and Dom
Champagne has become a beverage synonymous with specials occasions, so it’s no surprise that during the holidays the French wine flows. Not to be confused with other sparkling wines from around the world—like Italian Prosecco or Spanish Cava—Champagnes, from the namesake region in eastern France, carry a unique terroir, beloved for their creamy body and notes of toasted brioche.

There’s even a P2 deal in there. Below, where to sip the good stuff at prices that won’t break the bank.
