Wine Tour de France The Art of Champagne
Monday, February 8, 2016
About the Series
Wild and elegant at the same
time, the art of champagne is
one of the most mysterious in
the world. From the complex to
the smooth, every glass is full of
surprises. Discover the secrets of
champagne in this tasting
featuring bubbly from some of
the most prestigious houses
paired with sweet and savory canelé.
A canelé is a traditional French pastry with a unique texture : a caramelized crust over a deliciously tender heart, like a "Crème Brûlée" custard.
