17th April 2020

French Breakfast

It’s always nice to treat yourself and start your day with a nice breakfast, you can’t go wrong with Champagne and Croissants.

Champagne Julien Prélat

“In The Image Of Its Time”

Champagne Julien Prélat is a young winery compared to the other Champagnes out there, their story started in 2000, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have the winemaking experience, they have 3 generations of winemakers helping to create their sublime Champagnes.

The Breakfast

This is a list of all the food and drink I had to indulge myself in on this fine morning.

  • Champagne
  • Croissants
  • Strawberry
  • Kiwi
  • Orange Juice
  • Coffee

Croissants are widely seen as a French pastry, but you might be surprised to know, they were actually invented in Austria, by August Zang, an Austrian artillery officer in either 1838 or 1839.

Pairing Notes

Waking up and finding a glass of Champagne and a Croissant or two on your bedside table is a marvellous way to start your day off.

Champagne & Croissants Paring Notes – “A burst of zesty citrus cover the croissant then fades nearer the end leaving sweet, creamy croissant and yellow fruit flavours from the Champagne.”
