Raclette for dinner, what to drink before and after?

Or during, if you have suggestions, though I am more sure there.

We usually just have the meal, wine with it, and call it a day but this time we'd like to offer a bit of something before and after.

I just bought some Mumm sparklers at the Safeway sale and got all 3 varieties (Brut Prestige, Blanc de Noirs, Cuvee Napa Brut) offered at the 11.70 price. Are any of them appropriate? I do have other things in the house and will be going to the store so I can get something else. I prefer to spend less than about $18. per bottle.

As far as after our meal, maybe we should just sober up and have tea and coffee, but if we want drinks what would you suggest? It's such a rich and filling meal that I doubt we'll want dessert so I may just put out a bowl of clementines. It's a casual group of good friends so I think that's ok. I could add dark chocolates if you think I should.
Personally, I like hot tea with clems but what wine or other beverage sounds good?

Thank you for your help.
