In the same way there are some things you just don’t like that are really hard to review, sometimes it’s just as hard to try and be objective about things you really, really like! That was my problem this week. I’m sure most of you out there that had a taste or two of any Blanc De Blancs felt the same.

Wow is this a bit overdue.

It’s bad enough when you hit the Champagne aisle and there are so many manufacturers and labeling terms that just mess with your head. Do I buy Lanson or Mumm?

What a week of swings in the polls! At first it looked as though Barolo was running away with it, but a late surge from Blanc De Blancs takes it with just shy of 25% of the vote! So get the deep fryer ready, it’s time for some bubbles to take us out of January 🙂
