Champagne is France’s northernmost wine region. This is where you find the world’s most celebrated sparkling wine, as well as the wine for most celebrations. Racy, elegant wines but with a fantastic diversity, wines that also go very well with all sorts of food.
But you need to know what kind of champagne you have to make the best matches. Do you like it brut, brut zero, sec or maybe demi-sec? Champagne producers have to follow many rules. One of the things that are highly regulated is the sugar content in the bottle.
Fortunately, nowadays, most champagnes are dry, that is “brut”. This is the style that we personally prefer and the one that goes best with food. So called “dry” is actually a pretty sweet champagne but can be your choice if you are sensitive to high acidity.
If you don’t know the champagne language, it can be confusing. But if you spend a few days here, you will learn it and a lot more about this enticing wine region. And you will taste beautiful champagnes, not least during our lunches. Join us for a luxurious experience.
