Golden Bubbles

Swirling, evanescent, shimmering, impetuous or voluptuous, they sprout thousands of flute walls... These bubbles of gold give Champagne its sense of celebration, elegance, and sensuality. They crackle to celebrate an event, a victory, remove the Champagne effervescence, it would lose its soul!

The key to a good Champagne is undoubtedly its effervescence!

When I party, I only drink Champagne! I like its lightness, its liveliness. For me luxury is to take your time around a glass of champagne.

I appreciate the know-how, the timelessness, the culture and the quality of Champagne!

For me, champagne is linked to the party and happiness. I love visiting the Champagne cellars, the winemakers are passionate people.

Champagne is an integral part of French culture. Like gastronomy, cheese or wine, it symbolizes France.

Cult Drink

Inevitable of parties, this sparkling wine has many mysteries. What is the story of this cult drink?

Please note, dear readers, that it took more than 200 years of discoveries, trials and inventions, to develop the Champagne as we know it today and allow the birth of the appellation.

Champagne owes a great deal to Dom Perignon, a simple monk from the abbey of Hautvillers, who develops the Champagne method: fermentation, making foam in bottles, corking around a “muselet”.

The Church has always allowed the expansion of the vine culture. In difficult times, it has even sometimes been the sole proponent of know-how in terms of vineyard management and winemaking. The reason is simple: she needed wine for the Eucharist...

The first religious who had an important influence in the history of wine are the Cistercians. In Champagne, Dom Perignon is one of those monks to whom wine owes a lot. He is considered the father of modern Champagne as a sparkling wine. He devoted his life experimenting and trying to tame this wine.

My dear readers, before leaving you, it is important for me to share with you this anecdote about Champagne: did you know that at the origin of table tennis, the first balls were champagne corks?

See you soon !
