What better way to celebrate International Champagne Day on the 22nd of October than by popping a bottle of Tsarine.
Chanoine Frères, one of the oldest Champagne houses in the world, was founded in 1730 and its golden elixir was served to royal courts including the King of France and Imperial Russia. It was these royal ties that inspired the house to create Tsarine, paying tribute to the women of the Russian nobility who contributed to the rise of appreciation of champagne.
The bottle, inspired by Russian architecture with its encircling curves, is our choice this year for International Champagne Day. The house offers different cuvées including the Premium Brut, with the fine bubbles filled with notes of mirabelle plum, peach and apricot. And how do you you perfectly serve this delicious bottle of bubbly? Chilled of course! Isabelle Tellier, Chanoine Frère's cellar master suggests you chill the bottle for 3 hours in the fridge or for at least 30 minutes in an ice bucket before serving in a tulip-shaped champagne glass to enhance the notes and keep the bubbles effervescent.
