old and majestic, each bottle
boasts its own aromatic
power that’s reflected on
the palate with a silky texture.
A flavorful liquid usually
balanced by touches of honey
or ripe fruits, it’s perfect for pairing with hors
d'oeuvres and celebrations.
Normally a midweight offering redolent of
flowers, jasmine, honey, apricots and anything in
between, the best blends showcase their pretty
inner perfume in an accessible, easygoing style.
Try your hand at something clear and bright, or a
blend opalescent with a persistent mousse and a
delicate aroma that brings a subtle richness to the
bouquet. No matter what you choose, make sure
the taste is fresh, racy and enticing, a drink both
delicate and dynamic that will seduce the palate. [
Champagne is a complex and elegant creature.
