“It takes poor soil to make good Champagne; black grapes to make white wine; a blind man saw stars; the man accredited with putting bubbles in Champagne actually worked most of his life to keep them out”
(Excerpts from the book titled ‘Champagne’)
These are ironies which prompted a writer to call Champagne as ‘a taste of contradictions’
And these contradictions (alongwith the challenging and chequered history of the region), are precisely what make the Champagne as the greatest sparkling wine of the world !!
