How to enjoy champagne
At Colonnades we agree with Madame Lily Bollinger and that there is no need to wait for a special occasion to enjoy Champagne. “I only drink champagne 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 am not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it—unless I’m thirsty.” Read our top tips to help you enjoy your champagne.
