Wines from the Champagne region were already
known before medieval times. Churches owned vineyards, and monks produced wine
for use in the sacrament of Eucharist. French kings were traditionally anointed
in Reims. Champagne wine flowed as part of coronation festivities. The undisputed prince of celebrations, « vin de Champagne » constantly seduces us with its unique, classic style. Vineyards have been planted in Champagne ever since the beginning of our era. Although its surface area has been reduced over time, its unique characteristics were
recognized very early on. Champagne is best drunk chilled but never iced. A mature or vintage Champagne will be perfect at 50º Fahrenheit. Over-chilling will mean that the wine is too cold to release its aromas and flavors.
Twenty minutes in an ice bucket or three hours in the fridge will do the trick.
