The Dabbler is back, and it is time to lift your coupe and toast the juicy red grapes of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
These two grapes are the primary base for all things bubbly.
Yeah, we already know (if you don't, you should) that champagne is the perfect drink for any meal, aperitif or digestif, but that it has potential health benefits is an unexpected bonus.
You may have missed it (I did), but back in 2013 the University of Reading made a startling claim, and one I fully embrace: Drinking a few flutes of champagne per week could impact memory loss and certain brain disorders in a most positive way. It has something to do with proteins in the body.
So, when I recently spied this little nugget of information floating around the Newsfeed on Facebook, I headed to Total Wine for more bottles of Veuve Clicquot. The way I see it, the better the bubbles, the better for the brain. That is my opinion, definitely not supported in any collegiate study. -- The Dabbler
