Oh, the sound of those champagne corks popping. You instinctively know that someone is celebrating something. It could be any number of things. Birthdays, engagements, nuptials, divorces, milestones, partnerships, grand prix wins, grand final wins, business wins, you name it. If there’s an occasion of any sort champagne seems to be able to toast anything. So often, the champagne that’s chosen is either a guess or a popular brand that’s in vogue. There’s no real search for quality. You see this in evidence at parties. Bucket loads of the cheap variety. It’s all pretty ordinary. No one seems to know what they’re drinking. Most of the time it’s that ultra sweet variety. All froth and no bubble if you get what I mean. It’s also consumed at a rapid rate by some, without ever really tasting it.
Good champagne is something to be savored. Every famous champagne house in France makes wonderful champers that has its own distinctive style, made year after year. The style never waivers. It is the house brand. So if you like a certain house style, you’re pretty much guaranteed that you’ll be able to taste it any time.
Talking of style you simple can’t go past a champer hamper from The Complete Basketcase.
