Why we love Champagne – Champagne is a magical beverage. In the movies, no one drowns their sorrows in Champagne (Richard Pryor in Brewster’s Millions excepted). It is always about celebration.  Reims is a happy place to visit and drink to life. The short TGV train ride from Paris makes a Veuve Clicquot tour an easy vacation add-on. – John,
