The best bubbly to bring in the new year

The life of a wine writer is a life of cliché: red wine with red meat, white wine with fish; endless and interminable (so my wife tells me, but I’m sure she’s wrong) musings as to which vintage is “classic”; and, yes, I drink champagne on New Year’s Eve. Champagne has been cracked open to celebrate the coronations of French kings for a thousand years, but is it a cliché to drink it to welcome in the New Year, or merely respect for a long-standing tradition?
