1st of January. Hopefully you kept a little bit of champagne in the Fridge from last night. It may make this first day of the year more cheerful.
This picture is from Moet & Chandon in Epernay. Moet is part of the LVMH empire (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennesy) owned by Bernard Arnault. LVMH produces a very big part of all champagne made. I don't remember if it is 30% or something else, but it is very dominant. But you wouldn't know it since the champagne is sold under many different brand names.
