Here’s Our Favorite Songs Featuring Champagne, And What They’re All About!
Ahhhh, the bubbly beverage of delight! Often used for celebrating or imagined as a drink solely for an aristocratic function, this sparkling wine beverage is appearing in more mainstream outlets every day – not just wineries and restaurants. It’s a part of our popular culture in 2019.
One example: MUSIC! Songs that mention champagne (for various reasons) appear on charts and playlists from all genres of tunes. Learn a little more about some of the brands mentioned in these songs below. Have you heard of them? Any surprises?
Mentioning a couple of different types of champagne, this popular song from the early 2000s definitely drops the names of champagnes that you’ve heard of - Moët and Cristal.
Moët, first established in 1793, is now part of the largest luxury group in the world. After merging with Hennessey Cognac in the 70s and Louis Vuitton in the 80s, Moët holds the royal warrant for the supplier of champagne to Queen Elizabeth II. Moët can usually be found for under $100 per bottle.
Cristal is another type of champagne with a very rich history. Cristal finds its roots from a Russian Tzar, created in 1876 for Alexander II. As the Tzar feared assassination, he ordered the manufacturer to put the bubbly in clear glass, lending itself to its “Cristal” clear name. In 1945, it became available for sale. Since then, it’s only produced in the best years when the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes have reached their perfect maturity. Cristal’s pricing ranges from $189 -$200 a bottle.
What exactly is blue champagne? Great question! You can make a blue champagne beverage and you can even find it on sale in a few select places. For under $40, you can find varieties made by Blanc de Bleu or Opera Prima. If you feel more like DIY-ing your blue champagne, grab a bottle of blue curacao and triple sec to mix with your champagne.
Even country artists have got in on the champagne fun in their music! In this particular tune, Tim Montana laments over “feelin’ so fly, officially Forbes listed” and “Sippin' Dom Perignon, swimmin' in women.” He sings about Dom Perignon, a bottle of vintage champagne made by Moët (mentioned above). Dom Perignon was a Benedictine monk who was also a cellar master in the 1600s. Now, buying Dom Perignon will run you just under $200. It’s always considered a vintage, meaning it isn’t produced in weak years and that all of the grapes are from the same year. Since 1921, it’s only been produced in 42 vintages - making it a special treat for wine lovers.
If you’re like Wiz Khalifa and you’re “sippin' Clicquot and rocking yellow diamonds,” you’re likely drinking a glass of French premium champagne. Now owned by Louis Vuitton, Veuve Clicquot is a brand with a very rich history dating back to 1772. This champagne house has a strong history of women at the rein - even at the very beginning of their wine production years. Fun fact: They originally aged their wines in chalk quarries underground - which still exist today as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These quarries are medieval and lie about 60 feet underground and stay constantly at 48 °F. Today, you’ll likely find a bottle of Veuve Clicquot for under $75 depending on your retailer.
This brand made in southern France is known for its only two varietals: Rare Rosé and Rare Brut. Since it’s not technically considered champagne, it retails at a much lower price point. Typical retail falls under $50. What you may really recognize about the Bel Air is the bottle - black with bright pink lettering. Since 2013, rapper Rick Ross has been promoting the brand in songs (like the one above) and alongside other rappers like Lil Durk and DJ Khaled.
Since Jay-Z bought this brand in 2014, the Ace of Spades (or by its formal name, Armand de Brignac) has skyrocketed in popularity. Now, you’ll find the brand in restaurants and nightclubs across the country. Considered a “high roller wine,” this stuff isn’t cheap. Typically, it’s going to run $200+ per bottle, but it’s not unheard of to be found at $800+ depending on the varietal you choose. One signature feature of the beverage is it’s the signature shiny bottle. Silver, pink, and gold opaque bottles add to the brand’s image of gourmet and prestige.
