Consommation Responsable

Responsible consumption

While your 5 senses can be put to good use during a wine tasting session, there is a 6th that should not be forgotten: a sense of responsibility. At the Comité Champagne, we advocate responsible consumption, combining knowledge, pleasure, respect and self-control.
