ormiga ‏@ormiga very cool @peterwasserman @plepeltier who was the lady from #champagne said similar @KeeperColl #SommChat? noticed it a lil (limited=student

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @PeterWasserman Can you recall your first experience with #champagne? Was it love at first taste? #SommChat #ValentinesDay

A Year in Champagne ‏@YearinChampagne RT @KeeperColl: Q. @peterwasserman Can you recall your first experience w/ #champagne? Was it love at first taste? #SommChat #ValentinesDay

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @KeeperColl #SommChat no i had to go there and taste hundreds before it clicked

ormiga ‏@ormiga interesting @peterwasserman @KeeperColl 1st exposed to le good stuff real #champagne 2005-09 defi #loveatfirsttaste which fav? #SommChat

ormiga ‏@ormiga real #champagne DROOL which do @peterwasserman @KeeperColl like? how changed over yrs/decades? am limited 1999(superb)-2009 #SommChat SEND

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @ormiga @KeeperColl #SommChat there is a trend towards lower dosage #Champagnes

ormiga ‏@ormiga o? why so? how lower dosage #champagne affect tastes after yrs/decades @peterwasserman @KeeperColl #SommChat

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @Ormiga @KeeperColl #SommChat I like 08 best between 05 and 09

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @Ormiga @KeeperColl #SommChat 2 make good lower dosage wine u need 2 start in vineyard u achieve a certain concentration u need less sugar

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @ormiga @KeeperColl #SommChat time on the in bottle before disgorgment help to lower the need for sugar. they age very well

ormiga ‏@ormiga so #climatechange @peterwasserman @KeeperColl would help lower dosage #champagne ;) #SommChat

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @Ormiga @KeeperColl #SommChat yes you are right

Wine & Food Fndn TX ‏@WineFoodTX .@peterwasserman Champagne has been the standard for sparkling wine for years. Do you see growing competition from other bubbles? #SommChat

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @WineFoodTX @KeeperColl #SommChat yes of course there are some great new regions producing sparkling wines but they aren't #Champagne ...

Sandy Wasserman CS ‏@SandyWasserman Q. Good morning @peterwasserman Any wine mentors not named Wasserman that you can credit to your success? #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl #SommChat RT @demilove: @KeeperColl @peterwasserman - Why do you think Champagne is less "vintage-obsessed" than other wine regions?

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @DemiLove @KeeperColl #SommChat Champagne invented the non vintage in order to not be slaves to the vintage.... it was brilliant

Douglas Trapasso ‏@demilove @KeeperColl @peterwasserman - Why do you think Champagne is less "vintage-obsessed" than other wine regions? - #SommChat

Adam Plotkin ‏@AdamPlotkin @KeeperColl @scottota @CaravelleChamp @peterwasserman Mornin', #SommChat ers! Peter is the #Champagne Chap at #TexSomm! Let's get #bubbly!

Whitney Woodham ‏@Champagnewhit @KeeperColl @peterwasserman what is the biggest challenge working with #Champagne in the market #SommChat #WW

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @Champagnewhit @KeeperColl #SommChat its convincing people to drink bubbles with food

Adam Plotkin ‏@AdamPlotkin .@Champagnewhit @KeeperColl @peterwasserman Not drinking all of your inventory instead of selling it! Even I know that! ;-) #SommChat

ormiga ‏@ormiga 1x start cannot stop #champagne with #food #SommChat @peterwasserman @Champagnewhit @KeeperColl know any rich #france #babes no reason

Andy Phillips ‏@AndyOnFarmWine @peterwasserman @KeeperColl don't drink alot of vintage but have some Gimmonet 2006 Paradoxe what a big wine any fav vintages? #SommChat

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @AndyOnFarmWine @KeeperColl #SommChat i like 02 04 06 08 13 14 for vintages some r not relased yet

Douglas Trapasso ‏@demilove @KeeperColl - Have customer preferences in Champagne sweetness evolved over time? - #SommChat

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @demilove @KeeperColl #SommChat not at large, only with a tiny percentage of wine aware people.

Whitney Woodham ‏@Champagnewhit @KeeperColl @peterwasserman fav food and #Champagne pairing #SommChat #WW

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @Champagnewhit @KeeperColl #SommChat everyone knows that FRIES is the answer to that one! but i had a very good Steak Pappas with Rose

ormiga ‏@ormiga haha fries @peterwasserman @Champagnewhit @KeeperColl how about #foiegras w #champagne #SommChat

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines @peterwasserman think #champagne lost by resto glass opportunities due to pricing & competition via #cava #prosecco mid 2000's #SommChat

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @noblewines @KeeperColl #SommChat yes u r right but our high end sales are way up.

Andy Phillips ‏@AndyOnFarmWine @peterwasserman @KeeperColl what are some of ur fav #foodpairings with brut rose for v-day? #SommChat

Scott Ota ‏@scottota @peterwasserman In your opinion, why are consumers finally recognizing the potential of the Aube? What makes the region special? #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl @scottota great question on #SommChat about #Champagne for @peterwasserman thanks for joining in today!

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @scottota @KeeperColl #SommChat Very good question Because of the avant garde thinking of the growers

Scott Ota ‏@scottota @KeeperColl @peterwasserman Glad I could make it, thanks! #SommChat

Andy Phillips ‏@AndyOnFarmWine @peterwasserman @KeeperColl does vintage brut and brut rose age the same? #SommChat

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @AndyOnFarmWine @KeeperColl #SommChat Rosé and non Rosé do not age at the same rate due to the presence of tannin in rosé

Wine & Food Fndn TX ‏@WineFoodTX .@peterwasserman Champagne flutes have fallen out of fashion in favor of broader glasses. What's your opinion of the right glass? #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl RT @peterwasserman: @KeeperColl depending on the glass it can affect the sensation or perception in the mouth but not the taste #SommChat

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @WineFoodTX @KeeperColl #SommChat i like different glasses for diffrent reasons flute to keep it bubbly n festive

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @WineFoodTX @KeeperColl #SommChat wider glasses to kill a bit of bubble and let the wine shine through

Kerry Newberry ‏@kerrynewberry @peterwasserman @Champagnewhit @KeeperColl Do you have any favorite champagne and "comfort food" pairings? #SommChat

Andy Phillips ‏@AndyOnFarmWine @peterwasserman @KeeperColl after disgorgment what happens to ageability of the wine on the cork? #SommChat

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @AndyOnFarmWine @KeeperColl #SommChat it pretty much ages like a white wine

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @PeterWasserman Have heard that Blanc de Blanc is better as an aperitif than Blanc de Noir? Do you agree or disagree and why? #SommChat

Peter Wasserman ‏@peterwasserman @KeeperColl #SommChat i like blanc de blanc better early on in the evening and blanc de noir is more of a food wine because of its power
