The Tour de France continues, Wednesday is Bastille Day, and both of these make me think of celebrations, and celebrations make me think of champagne.
Mireille Guiliano loves the mood champagne creates, "the feeling no other wine can come close to: celebration, life-affirming joy." I couldn't agree more; there's nothing like a glass of champagne to make any occasion a small celebration.
The French love their champagne, and one of the best is Veuve Cliquot. If you have a few minutes, you might enjoy the Veuve Cliquot website. Like other French sites such as Roger Vivier, Hermes, and Anne Fontaine site, Veuve Cliquot's site is delightful and the animation and graphics are fabulous.
