THE UNIQUENESS OF CHAMPAGNE
The simple word “Champagne” brings you so much emotion it is difficult to resist popping a bottle. Ever since its first sparkle, Champagne has been the most preferred choice for celebrations of all kinds. Royal, political, national, fashionable, sporting – whatever the occasion, it has to be Champagne. Champagne, is an experience for all senses – colour, aroma, texture, flavour and sound too. Learning to recognize and define the distinctions in Champagne – by making associations and finding the right word – is what makes tasting Champagne particularly fascinating. Our brain should distinguish between nuances of white, yellow and pink; between fruity, spicy and floral aromas; between subtle, delicate and powerful sensations – between all those different qualities that make Champagne wine so irresistible.
