Champagne is an indulgence. It should not be reserved for a special occasion. Everyday can be made special with a drink of champagne. We had a very special champagne for our eve of the new year. A small French producer of elegant elixirs. Tiny bubbles with a firm mouse. Dry not sweet as champagne should be. A wonderful discovery for our palates. It defeats the massed produced popular vote champagnes by comparison. David Leclapart Champagne.  Particularly the L’Astre, $215, L’Amateur, $95 and the L’Aphrodisiaque, $275. When buying French bubbly at these prices you want to try to seek out Leclapart. It is worth the quest. Happy 2020 from the FFWJ Staff!
