Don’t care much about champagne to be honest, I’ll definitely have some at special occasions but never been caught with something I especially liked.

    Love the Champers baby! Best bottle ever, PJ in Paris France with my wife hanging on our belcony with a spectacular view of the Eifle tower eating strawberries. One of the best moments in my life. Cheers!

    First comment after watching prob.50+ episodes in a couple of days. Greatest champagne ever tasted?
    I have to say that the -85 Salon i had a sip of some 3-4 years ago was amazing. Really developed and super well structured. The -96 was pretty nice to but really shut and far too young.
    I also had some wonderful Selosse over the years (Im 24 so not that many years).

    Keep it up Chuk

    I am a complete champagne novice…..
    QOTD – my favorite bottle…probably some non-vintage Pol Roger that we had at our wedding. It was great!

    Good Episode – one I will watch again as I grow with Champagne this year. Also very cool to watch all of the questions answered! Only on laid back Fridays now. I wonder if Genev is still around?

    I’m a champagne novice- as a CKC, I can’t quite drop as much moola on real champagne. In the US, I go more for cava and prosecco. However, in France, I loved Carrefour’s brand of champagne…the best part? A 750ml bottle cost 0,76 euros. You have to love 76 cent champagne!

    Champagne ranks in my top three favorite wines (Chardonnay and Merlot being the other two). I drink it every chance I get, which isn’t that often unfortunately. I think part of my love of champagne is that it was the first wine that I really was educated about. When I was 16 I went on a tour of Champagne (the region now, not the wine) with my father. Every day during that trip we went to 2 or 3 different houses for degustations. Fantastic experience, let me tell you. This brings me to my favorite champagne–Moet et Chandon Brut Imperial. I love dry whites, so this preference fits in that sense. I think though that my love of this champagne above all others has to do with the setting in which I first tasted it–in the inner courtyard of the headquarters in Epernay.

    qotd: havent bought alot of champagne, no great reason either. champagne is pretty expensive for one. had a decent amount of sparklings. so my best champagne would have to be a vintage one. A gentleman I was serving a 1996 veuve cliquot-ponsardin la grand dame to, surprised me by giving me a glass, that was really nice. Scratch that, it was whatever champagne i was given when i found out i was 1st in my class at the 1st court of master sommelier classes i had. i have no idea what it was, whole thing was a blur. i didnt know what to expect from the classes [since i’d never been to any before], was worried i hadnt prepared enough and may not get through. They waited last to tell me my results. so i was freakin out. i was happy to pass and to do that well was a total surprise, and boy did that champagne taste fantastic after that.
    love that your readin/answering comments. i’d love to see a vin jaune episode, and a tasting on the different charbono’s out there.
