Fun fact: All of the champagne in the entire world comes from the Champagne region of France (in which Reims is the capital). If it doesn’t come from Champagne than it is sparkling wine. The government has laws regarding how Champagne can be produced and it’s a pretty specific process producing only the finest drink at the end. That is why it is so expensive! Of course buying it in Champagne is not as expensive as buying it in another country. When Max first told me this I said, “No way! There must be Champagne coming from other parts of the world!” But the truth is the truth.
Since I have moved here I have been desperately wanting to visit the cellars underneath the city. There are hundreds of kilometres of these cellars built under the region similar to underground subways except fillied with
thousands millions of bottles of champagne. Having guests over this weekend was the perfect excuse for a visit.
At the end of the visit we all got to enjoy a glass of the Pommery champagne! Such a treat!
