If like me, you cannot wait to be able to travel again, there is no time like the present to start planning that trip of a lifetime to Champagne; whether you are a first time visitor or re-planning a trip that had to be cancelled because of the covid travel restrictions this year.
Sometime last year I posted about a particular Champagne House, it was in fact not even my own post but an article I shared. A follower who is obviously friends with the House’s winemaker, tagged him in the comments to which he responded that their champagne was only for the “serious”.
As I’m typing this post I can already hear some of you gasp “Stopper? Why would anyone need a stopper? Only an amateur doesn’t finish a bottle of champagne”. These are comments I regularly get whenever I post anything relating to Champagne Stoppers.
The start of a new year somehow always puts me in the mood to re-decorate or re-arrange rooms and furniture and I absolutely love adding champagne-themed furniture and accessories to my décor as it brings such a fun, quirky element to any room.
I normally post an annual Champagne Lovers Gift Guide for the most fabulous things to gift the Champagne Loving Friend in your life (CLF for short) and this year is no exception, however, it’s time to think out the box and do something a little different.

It is something that will last a lifetime and nothing beats sitting back and admiring a beautiful piece that brings you joy over a glass of champagne.
For anyone obsessed with champagne, a visit to Champagne at least once in your lifetime is a must. Yes, there is a lot you can learn through reading books and online articles, but nothing quite compares to walking the villages and vineyards of this magical place.
My final visit in Champagne was to Champagne Paul Launois in the famed village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. It is not even 20km from Epernay. The vineyards here are all Grand Cru (100%), often shortened on bottle labels to just Le Mesnil.
Champagne Boizel holds a prominent spot on the famed Avenue de Champagne in Epernay, and I was privileged to be hosted by the charming Florent Roques Boizel, CEO and 6th generation Boizel at the Maison.
