How to: the 6 steps that make Champagne outstanding

Welcome to Wine by Alex, the show to watch to take your wine game to the next level!

Today you’re watching a brand-new episode of #Askwinebyalex and I’ve got a question from Julie:
” I want to know about Champagne winemaking!”

Julie, I’m all passionate about this topic as well! It’s a complex process so I’ll try to break it down in the most simple way possible for you.

Before diving into the process of making Champagne, there are a few things you need to know…

Aubert & Mathieu on how to make Languedoc wine more meaningful

Languedoc-Roussillon truly does not stop to astonish by its dynamism and freshness!

After a career in finance in Paris for Jean-Charles Mathieu and one in wine marketing between the US and Thailand for Anthony Aubert, the two young men chose their native Languedoc to throw themselves into their own wine merchant adventure in September 2018.
Both from the medieval city of Carcassonne, they know each other since high school and did not think of any other region to create their business.

Languedoc-Roussillon indeed has a climate that is perfectly suited to wine growing, a wide range of grape varieties that is favourable to experiment and has a growing reputation.
It is not at the same level of recognition as Bordeaux or Burgundy so it also allows a more attractive value for money, both for producers and consumers.

Success has come knocking for this authentic and creative duo!
Especially with the Best Design prize for their labels in the prestigious Harpers Wine & Spirit magazine, or else with a score of 18/20 for their Corbières Marie-Antoinette by the magazine Terre de Vins…

Tasting note Domaine Le Van Secret de Juliette 2016 (Vin de Pays du Vaucluse)

Do you know the appellation Vin de Pays du Vaucluse?
This appellation accounts for a small part of French wine production and is generally of a lower quality than IGPs and AOPs.
Today it includes more and more higher quality wines made outside of IGP and AOP regulations.

This Domaine Le Van Secret de Juliette 2016 is a great example.
Let’s have a taste!

Alexia wishing happy new year 2021

Let’s start 2021 like a rocket!! 🚀🚀

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
I send you my best wishes for this new year!! May 2021 bring you joy, love, health and success!!
I hope it will be magical every day with beautiful gems to sparkle your way.

2020 has been tough and unexpected, but also surprising in a good way! During this intense year, I’ve been forced to slow down and recenter. And I’m thankful for that.
This helped me evolve, both personally and professionally. I’ve been able to check in with myself and implement some stuff that are more aligned with who I am now, who I want to become and what I want to achieve.

That’s why I entirely redesigned my blog last year to offer you a better experience. And that’s why I’m still working on several projects to help you achieve your goals in life…
