When it comes to a wine to celebrate a special occasion, little comes close to Champagne. For me, however, Champagne doesn’t have to be simply reserved for times when a celebration is on the cards. If money was no object, I’d be drinking Champagne (by which I, of course, mean sparkling wines from the region of Champagne, France) every day.champagnefrench winesparkling
Given my last post was all about the Northern Rhône, it makes sense that the next wine tasted comes from there. I’ve mentioned before that Yves Cuilleron can do no wrong, and this wine is certainly one of my favourites.
