Known for its festive bubbles, this legendary wine evokes a feeling of celebration whenever the cork is popped. Champagne, however, is more than just a wine to toast to the good times. Wine professionals and foodies alike love champagne for its chalky minerality and subtle complexity. In this session we'll taste through a classic brut style from a world renowned house and discuss its versatility with the countless food and wine pairings of this historic wine.
