Imagine yourself having sumptuous dinner at home and you cap it off by opening a good bottle of champagne.
You wait in anticipation as you pour that fizzy sparkling drink into your wine glass, waiting a few moments to let the bubbles settle down. You drink the bubbly and notes of peach, white cherry, citrus, almond, and a note of toast overwhelm your taste buds. Immediately you are put into a happy and satisfied mood.
