Today it's no longer about absentmindedly sipping from long stem flutes; instead Champagne is enjoyed in large-bowled glasses, which allow the wine to open up and show many of its Burgundian qualities. Much of this is the result of producers who looked to the earth beneath their feet and decided to allow the terroir to show through, or the winemakers that continue to experiment with low, and often times, no dosage. Even the largest houses have looked at the success of the grower movement and realized that there's so much more that Champagne can accomplish beyond consistency from vintage to vintage. We are witnessing the change of an entire region right before our eyes, and it's a change that can only benefit Champagne lovers, as our favorite houses continue to create the wines we've grown to love, yet also experiment with entirely new styles and unique expressions. The world of Champagne is forever growing and forever changing—and we love what we've been tasting. ✦
