All I have to say is that I'm glad as hell I never have to run for class president against my friend Sam Breach, of Becks and Posh. Her popularity, charm, and sheer force of blogging personality resulted in the highest ever turnout for this month's virtual wine tasting event, Wine Blogging Wednesday.
She has posted the roundup of forty-one Champagne reviews on her site for your pleasure. Yes, you heard right. Forty-one. No more excuses about how you're not so familiar with Champagnes.... One of the benefits of Sam's massive readership is that this month's tasting event included dozen's of first-time participants -- always a good thing.
There was quite a range of tasting that went on from sub $15 wines to some topping the charts towards $100. The reviews are great. Check them out.
