Tour de Champagne - 1/30

1/22/2010 01:43:00 AM
Those of you that have been to my apartment, know that I always keep a bottle of champagne in the fridge.  You never know when there will be some impromptu reason to celebrate.  Someone's birthday that you forgot, someone's new promotion, the fact that it's Thursday .... just kidding. 

My go to champagne for years was Cliquot, but if you drink as much of it as I do, you've noticed that that price has creeped up steadily over the years to a point where it's no longer worth it.  I'm in the market for a new default champagne, so something like the Tour de Champagne next week sounds perfect.

My go to "champagne" currently is one from Domaine Carneros.  It's roughly half the price of Cliquot and tastes just as good.  I put champagne in quotes because the stuff coming out of Domaine Carneros is technically sparkling wine since it's from California.  But the vineyard is owned by Taittinger, so you know they're not messing around.

Oh and it's Friday, so I'm going to stop at one post, and maybe pop open a bottle of something.  TGIF.
