A Glimpse of Champagne Feuillatte

Tasting Champagne over a bistro lunch in San Francisco

Posted: April 16, 2015  By Harvey Steiman

Guillaume Roffiaen slowly drizzled a magnum of Palmes d'Or 2002, Champagne Feuillatte's tête de cuvée, into a decanter.

How Real is Minerality?

In controlled study, tasters in France and New Zealand agree on it
