Dom Pérignon, the monk known as the father of champagne, was said to pronounce when he first tasted champagne, “Come quickly, I am tasting the stars!” After spending some time in the Champagne region of France this past May, we were excited to further extend our appreciation of champagne through a tasting at K&L Wines that focused exclusively on the product of the 2012 harvest. An amazing tasting ensued!
