A cause may be inconvenient, but it's magnificent. It's like Champagne or high heels, and one must be prepared to suffer for it.
~ Arnold Bennett
A woman should never be seen eating or drinking, unless it be lobster salad and Champagne, the only true feminine and becoming viands.
~ Lord Byron
Great love affairs start with Champagne and end with tisane.
~ Honore de Balzac
I drink Champagne when I win, to celebrate…and I drink Champagne when I lose, to console myself.
~ Napoleon Bonaparte
Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right.
~ Mark Twain
I had taken two finger-bowls of Champagne, and the scene had changed before my eyes into something significant, elemental and profound.
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
I'm in love with these vintage advertisements for Moet & Chandon:
Aren't they gorgeous? These ran in 1899. It's amazing to me how looking at these images gives me an instant impression of what each champagne tastes like. Makes me wish for a glass right now! How about you? Do you like champagne? (I adore it, in case you couldn't tell.) Do you have a memorable champagne moment from real life or literature? A little-known champagne fact?
