In preparation for my 10/2019 Sparkling Wine Exam consisting of both a blind tasting and wine theory component, I drank countless bottles of bubbles over a “sparkling-only” period of about 3 months. To be honest, very few of them were as delicious and as high quality as Moet & Chandon’s Imperial Brut. And yes, I really did forego all (almost) other wine and drank only sparkling during that period – and I really enjoyed it!
