Pick up your favorite bottle for the gift-giving festivities. For your next trip to France, we can plan for a stay in the Champagne region so you can taste and maybe find some new favorites! My favorite Champagne which is easily available internationally is Taittinger's Prestige Rosé. I also love Philippe Martin, but you must come to France to taste it.
Emilie, Naomi, Guillaume, myself and our families wish you and yours a very happy and safe holiday season.
