Champagne


In an earlier post, I described how we had prepaid the import duty on a delivery of champagne. Yesterday we were in France, buying a Premier Cru. We were not far from Avize, south of Epernay. It was a long trek, but it was important because it helped to cement the relationship with the sellers.

The cementing process worked so well that we were asked to help them develop their business in France, so the day had an unexpected upside that we hadn't expected.

So, relatively suddenly, we are now importers. I'll keep you in touch with how it goes. I suspect that the major problem will be friends and acquaintances asking for samples - just to check whether or not they like the flavour.
