Champagne tips

If you love French champagne, but not the price, try some of the New World sparkling wines made in California that are owned by the French Champagne House:  Domaine Chandon (Moet & Chandon), Pacific Echo (Veuve Clicquot), Domaine Carneros (Tattinger) and Mumm Cuvee Napa (Mumm).  One of my favourite sparklers is by Blue Mountain from BC – probably not available in Ontario.
