On a recent windy autumn day in Provence, I headed to Domaine Tempier to have a glass of wine with hundred-year-old Lulu Peyraud. We sat down as her daughter, Laurence, brought over a tray featuring freshly sliced melon, toasts with tapenade and brandade, and some cuts of saucisson. Empty glasses waited in anticipation. Can you guess Lulu’s preferred apéritif wine?
      No, it is not Tempier’s Bandol rosé. Nor is it Tempier rouge (although Lulu admits to a healthy red wine habit, “to avoid rusting”), nor the rare Bandol blanc. Instead, Lulu presented a bottle of Brut premier cru Champagne from J. Lassalle.
     The cork popped. Wine bubbled into our glasses. We rejoiced.
     Champagne adapts itself to any and every situation. There is no time when a bottle of Champagne feels unwelcome or out of place: all times of day, virtually every style of cuisine, and any of the wide range of human emotions warrant opening a bottle. It is a mistake to think that Champagne is appropriate only on festive occasions; remember that Napoleon advocated for Champagne in times of defeat as well as victory.
      Champagne is indeed a celebratory wine—the celebration begins as soon as the cork is popped. So let the celebrating start now, and may your glass stay full until our Champagne Sale returns next November.
