NY Times Article on the Champagne Expansion


There was an article by Doreen Carvajal in Saturday’s New York Times about the proposed expansion of vineyard land in Champagne. It still remains to be seen how exactly this issue will be resolved, but it’s very likely that we will have more land included in the appellation in the near future. Carvajal also raises the issue about the rising cost of champagne in the United States due to both the falling dollar and the increasing price of grapes here in the region. Unfortunately for Americans, there are plenty of other people around the world who are thirsty for champagne, and who have stronger currencies to pay with.

Another bonus of the article was discovering Cyril Janisson’s blog. Janisson-Baradon et Fils is a grower based in Epernay and a member of the Club Trésors de Champagne — I know Cyril and am familiar with his wines, which can be very good, especially the single-vineyard Spécial Club from Les Toulettes in Epernay, and I was happy to find out that he has a blog.
