WineRelease.com's March 15, 2022 Monthly Newsletter.

This month we had 103 winery updates and 88 wineries releasing wine. Another busy month.

I had some wine friends in town so I took my third trip to Champagne, this time it was an overnight trip. You can't blame me as the journey is a 40 minute train ride (compared to a 2 hour 22 minute car ride) and there are so many Champagne houses to visit. We took the 12:23pm train from Gare de l'Est (Paris) and arrived at 1:03pm at the Champagne-Ardenne TGV station. We visited Bollinger at 2pm then headed to the Continental Hotel in Reims. On Wednesday we started at 9:30am at Champagne Laurent-Perrier then Philipponnat and finished at Pol Roger.

Epernay.
When you are in Epernay, you know you are in Champagne.



The steps to descend down to the Champagne caves.
Since this was a trade tasting, we were a bit more serious. By the way, I learned the correct way to pronounce Bollinger, it is pronounced bowlawnjay.



Madame Bollinger had the right idea.
Madame Bollinger had a great sense of humor.

Wine Quote of the Month: ""I drink it when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm hungry and I drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it, unless I'm thirsty. Madame Elisabeth Bollinger, London Daily Mail, October 17, 1961


Till next month.
