Last Saturday I met some friends at a place just down the street from me for a champagne tasting event. The store had sent invitations to their regular customers to come in for a free champagne tasting that included some very expensive champagnes. I do on rare occasions get to enjoy a bottle of Veuve Clicquot but, I haven't indulged in the very expensive versions since my days in the consulting business. I got to taste an all-time favorite of the Clicquot family of bubbly, the Grande Dame along with a wonderful vintage rose'.
I also got a taste of the famous "Cristal" that I've heard so much about. That is one I had never tasted before.
I was glad to find a few that were excellent and yet still in my price range. Let the celebrating begin!
