One thing you don't see much written about across the wine blogs is notes on Champagne. (Fortified wines don't get much of a look in either). I guess this important categories absence is down to cost; it can't be distribution for everywhere stocks Champagne. More than any other wine Champagne is the celebratory drink - despite the Champagne houses wishes the bubbly stuff is generally only opened on special occasions, which is fine of course. As a wine it also has great food matching potential, something often overlooked. Veuve Clicquot and others have designed bottles specifically designed to be drunk with food rather than 'relegated' to an aperitif.

All these aspects to explore in the next Wine Blogging Wednesday as San Franciscos Brit-It-Girl, Sam, has selected this most wonderful of wines as the theme for round 25.
