  1. Love the “over $3 rating on the Voirin

  2. Uhh… yeah, nevermind the last comment – just read the rating system. Understood. And yeah, just to give you some feedback, your description of your rating system is very clear.

  3. Hi !

    We’re happy to see that you appreciated our Champagne.
    So far from our village, and so close for our degustations.

    Have a very nice end of 2007 year,

    Alexandre Chartogne
