Visits and the AOC
We had visitors in Soulières a fews days ago.
"Dear Solveig and Alain,
Thank you very much for the kind reception in your exciting and historic surroundings.
Your wonderful bubbles have reached our cellar well - now we will drink them."
So nice to hear. As we enjoy these visits as well.
To AOC or not
There is usually a good exchange between our explanations and questions from our guests.
This time we talked about the AOC: the area where we can grow grapes to make champagne.
Part of the slope above is in the AOC and the other part is not. Which does not make a lot of sense to anyone.
So why don't we just plant it with vines and sell the result as Tange-Gérard sparkling?
Well, I guess we are too small and too busy to be the ones to test the limits.
More visits are up in the next weeks. I guess these visitors will be charged with good questions as well. We don't always have good answers, but we really do try.
