An online Q&A with a champagne expert

This 1891 poster is an early work by Pierre Bonnard.
If you've wanted to learn more about France's gift to the world--champagne--here's a great opportunity. Thibaut Le Mailloux of the Comité Interprofessionnel du Vin de Champagne (CIVC), the trade association representing the houses and grape growers of Champagne, France, is taking questions online through Google Moderator from now through Wednesday, August 31. 

So ask away! Want to know more about this year’s Champagne harvest or learn which Champagne tastes best with poultry? Or maybe you'd like to know what makes Champagne different from other regions that produce quality sparkling wines. You'll get answers to all your Champagne questions directly from the vineyards in France. 

Follow this
link to submit your own questions or to vote on questions submitted to Google Moderator by other Champagne fans. You can also send questions through Twitter or Facebook, or email them directly to (they'll be posted to Google Moderator for you). Use the hashtag #Champagne for all questions submitted via Twitter. 

Submit questions no later than Wednesday, August 31, and check back at the CIVC site for Thibaut’s answers during the week of September 5.
