Hello Champagne aficionados,
April is a busy time in Champagne region – with growers launching new tasting salon exhibitions left right and centre. There was only one Salon eight years ago “Terres et Vins” – now there are 21 ! Most are now based in Reims with only a few based in some of the villages. This week has been named ‘Le Printemps des Champagnes’. It is a busy week – spitoons are the order of the day – and a firm resolve with copious note taking. Most growers speak enough English to be well understood. Also there are a number of events at local wine bars – show casing growers’ champagne.
