    Question That or not that?

    Hello everybody,
    I am 'The French', and I need some help for the sentence below:

    Have you got some champagne I could take to the party? or

    Have you got some champagne that I could take to the party?

    I am not sure the both phrases are correct, because I think the first clauses need the relative pronoun 'that' to introduce the second.

    Thank for your replies and have a nice day.

    You can leave out 'that'.

    Re: That or not that?

    I think they're both correct, the first one is more colloquial and more frequently used
