On today’s THE FOOD SEEN, we’re all bubbly about Belinda Chang, the champagne educator for MoÃ«t Hennessy USA. We’ll be pouring over the 5 maisons, Krug, Dom Perignon, MoÃ«t & Chandon, Ruinart, and Veuve Clicquot, from doux to extra brut, talking grapes, vineyards, vintages, and all things pertaining to the champenoise method. We’ll even learn some etiquette, from how to open a bottle, pour, and what flutes to use, all while sharpening our sabering skills. This program was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.
“If you look at the top consumers of Champagne across the world, #1 is the belgians – they drink 1 bottle per person per year. #2 is the UK, which was the original Champagne market – they drink 1/2 bottle a person per year. The US only drinks 1/3rd a glass per person per year! I’m doing my best to spread the Champagne gospel – because Champagne makes life better!” [02:00]
