The Best Time to Drink Champagne

11 November 2018

"Pour the Champagne and let the mousse rise, like thousands of sparkling smiling eyes"

It's a choice, it's a big Anniversary and therefore before we get into the day, a glass of something sparkling is in order. It could be Prosecco or Cava but for me Champagne is the morning drink so it's a no brainer. It's got the acidity to cut through the richness of the breakfast. The fizz just lifts the flavours of citrus, red fruits and brioche.

The Maillart Grand Cru Rose is a classic Champagne made by the family that have grown the grapes for over 300 years, they know what they are doing. Being a Grand Cru means that it's made from the best grapes, only 9% of all the grapes grown in Champagne having that status.

So, as you take that first sip know you are drinking the best of the best, which is what you deserve.
