In the love triangle that is “The Great Gatsby,” Champagne is like the hypotenuse, a thread that runs long and strong opposite the namesake star of the new movie. Bottles upon bottles of Moet & Chandon are swilled and spilled at the movie’s Jazz Age soirees from Long Island to Manhattan.
No surprise Moet & Chandon has created a signature Gatsby cocktail in conjunction with the film’s opening. And no cynical sneers here. I’m a recent convert to sparkling wine, its effervescence bright and sippable after years of deep reds and flat whites.
