Rosé Champagne Brings the Holiday Joy

Rosé Champagne Brings the Holiday Joy

We haven’t even explored the different villages of Champagne and their characteristics, or the various production methods. Perhaps I can be accused of oversimplifying as well.

If you do have an appetite for further exploration, I highly recommend “Champagne: The Essential Guide to the Wines, Producers and Terroirs of the Iconic Region” by Peter Liem. Otherwise, simply enjoy.
