French Champagne Tasting, Poured by Dustin Jones
The thing we drink when celebrating, but why? And where does champagne come from? Champagne established itself during the Belle Époque, an era of peace and prosperity in France from 1890 till World War I. During this time, the new rich prowled Paris looking for entertainment. It was when the Moulin Rouge was in its prime. Artists in the early 1900s, like Alfons Mucha and Toulouse-Lautrec, were hired by champagne houses to depict the wine as a celebratory beverage.
Dustin Jones of Skurnik Wines will pour the flight and chat a bit. $35 for a flight of four pours.
