J. EVERETTE PERRY

2009 CHATEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD
This first-growth Bordeaux is considered one of the world’s greatest clarets (dark rosé). The Rothschilds have bottled it since 1853. ($1,633, 3rd Corner Wine Shop and Bistro, Palm Desert)

1999 MÖET CHANDON DOM PERIGNON MAGNUM
Legend has it the Perignon family invented the bubbly gold. It has been imbibed by celebrities, rapped about by Jay Z, and considered tradition in many other circles. ($600, 3rd Corner Wine Shop and Bistro)

POMMERY POP PINK CHAMPAGNE
These little pink bottles are the crème de la crème on the French Riviera and proving equally popular at desert pool parties. It might be the twisty straw. ($55/four pack, Clementine Gourmet Marketplace & Café, Palm Desert)

MÖET & CHANDON IMPERIAL OR NECTAR IMPERIAL
A variety pack never looked so chic. In this sampling of Möet & Chandon Imperial Champagnes, the Nectar surprises most, while the original has that crisp bouquet of apples and honey. ($30/$35, Clementine Gourmet Marketplace & Café)
