200-year-old champagne!

Update: corrected the broken link. Sorry about that!

Knowing how much I love champagne, Captain Caffeine sent me the link to this article on 200-year-old bottles that were recovered from a shipwreck, which are to be auctioned off. How cool would that be, to taste one of those? I absolutely love Veuve Clicquot. I wonder how different the champagne would taste once it’s aged 200 years?

I started enjoying champagne more after I read the book French Women Don’t Get Fat by Mireille Guiliano. I had never really tasted good champagne before reading the book, and since she worked for a champagne company and talked about it, I thought I’d try some.

I absolutely LOVED it. Something about the bubbles just makes me happy. :)

But instead of saving champagne only for special occasions, I started drinking a glass of champagne with dinner. Once in a while I’ll open a bottle of red wine instead, but most of the time I prefer champagne. I’ve gotten some rather good, inexpensive bottles at Trader Joe’s.
