Discussing :: Champagne: A Wine of Many Talents

Understanding Food Pairing with Champagne Ah, champagne. It's a French discovery synonymous with romance, celebration, and, for those who don't know how to properly open a bottle, safety goggles.

At least one bottle is necessary for breakfast on Christmas morning!

I agree. only like the good ones


is there anything champagne does not go with! admittedly when i attend a party that has it on offer i don't really care what else they are serving, i stick close to the bottle.


So many people need to read this article, Lindauer is NOT champagne, and never ever could or will be.
