The classic movie "Desk Set" is one of my all-time favorites, especially during the holiday season (love the office Christmas party scenes!)
This 1957 comedy is set at a fictitious TV network housed in Rockefeller Center. It has the usual witty banter and tension between characters that you see whenever those characters are played by Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. (Need I say more?)
There is a scene where Miss Hepburn's character, Bunny Watson, describes herself to Tracy's Richard Sumner as someone who "only drinks champagne when I am lucky enough to get it."
This holiday season, I am lucky enough to work with Taittinger to feature their Champagnes on several TV shows. They have a Champagne to suit any taste, from the signature dry Brut La Francaise ($60 - and my favorite) to the sweeter Nocturne "City Lights" ($82). They even have a Prestige Rose ($84) for all of those rose lovers on your list.
Cheers to the season!
