It’s becoming more and more common for less known brands in champagnes to be winning awards. Just within the last 4 weeks, I’ve been reading about 2 particular champagnes that have done just this. And whilst I was eager to try them, I wasn’t rushing out to buy them or place the order online. I feel I was starting to get a bit immune from the awards flying out.
Recently I was wandering around a duty free looking at the array of champagnes they had. Starting from the not so expensive to the super duper pricey stuff. And as I looked at all the prices and after I had finished counting which ones I’d tried, I couldn’t help but ask myself which were the best champagnes for the money.
Which champagnes were so undervalued, tasted amazing and were priced either just right or too little?
Champagne has long been the go to drink to mark any happy occasion. Be it a promotion, a celebration even a wedding – no one ever questions why do in fact celebrate with champagne. I mean it’s become so ingrained in society, that until recently I never thought to look into why it’s such a celebratory drink. It was time to really understand why we celebrate with champagne.
I mean think about it. Have you ever been to a restaurant and been sitting next to a couple, where midway through dinner you hear her start to scream. And as you look over, you can see he’s on bended knee (puke) – proposing his heart away.
And after all the hugs and kisses have happened, what do they next? They proceed to order champagne. Never a bottle of vodka or a bottle of whiskey, or even a high end bottle of Bordeaux. Just Champagne.
