Jason Cook

Why do you love Champagne?

"I love Champagne for, among many reasons, its ability to constantly surprise people despite being one of the most famed and thoroughly discussed great wine regions of the world. I love the ah-ha moment a customer of ours has when they taste a cuvée from one of our favorite small growers and begin to think of Champagne as a soulful wine with a sense of place rather than just fancy bubbles."

What is your favorite Champagne pairing?

"I'm not a sommelier, so when it comes to pairings, more often than not I like to stay classic, but I also like the idea of Champagne as a wine to be enjoyed through the course of a meal. A rich, structured blanc de noirs with roasted chicken or seared duck breast? Yes please! "

How are you celebrating La Fête du Champagne Week?

"We'll be offering 10% off all purchases of Champagne through the entire run of La Fete du Champagne, plus in store tastings featuring some of our favorite Champagne houses on November 3rd, 4th and 5th in the evenings from 6-8pm."
