My bubbly musings



List of champagnes recommended by Delectabulles

Articles - Image d'intro

People often ask me: "What is your favourite champagne?". I always answer: "I don't have a favourite champagne!". That said, when I know the woman who made the champagne, or the history of the House, it makes the champagne taste even better. So does sharing the bottle with someone I like. If I am sharing it with someone nasty, no matter how technically good the champagne is, it always leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.

Here is a list of champagne houses/producers that have a soft spot in my heart because women play an important role there. The list will make more sense if you attend one of my events!
