Vive Le Champagne


Despite the increased supply of Champagne due to the 2011 bumper harvest and slowing demand in Europe, producers are still increasing prices.  Why?  As mentioned in my last post, the 2012 crop was much lower than expected which gave producers the excuse they needed to take up prices.  Given the rising cost of all raw materials from sugar to cotton to livestock, it was only a matter of time and I'm all for Champagne producers making a fair wage for delivering such a delightful product.  That said, I'm counting on some nice post New Year's deals.  I guess you can say I'm wearing my Rosė colored glasses.

I adore wine, but not champagne. Where did I go wrong?

Champagne is wine - just happens to be a sparkling variety and when called Champagne, from a very particular region in France. That said, you did nothing wrong! The best thing about wine is that there are so many varietals and so many styles - even within varietals - that there is truly something for everyone. I have yet to find a person for whom I could not find a wine that they loved. Even my beer drinking friends now have their preferred wine types (when they actually drink wine, that is).
