Corks Away!

Looks like someone has had a whole lot of fun here!  Something about corks, the colour, the smooth texture and the fragrance of the champagne.  I know people always become animated when they hear that certain “pop” that only a champagne bottle can make.  I think it makes people happy and excited.  If we were strict purists we wouldn’t really want that “pop” but I think sometimes it sets the mood and besides it’s fun.  Nothing beats firing a cork from a bottle off the balcony grand prix style!


Champagne Monmarthe Coup de Coeur wins Gold

Earlier this year this Premier Cru NV champagne won Gold at the Sakura Woman’s Wine Awards in Japan.  Congratulations Monmarthe!

This is certainly well deserved as this is a superbly sophisticated champagne oozing with style.  Ok, if you haven’t guessed it, I confess to this being one of my favorites.  It’s dry and delicious!
