    Matt Lauer, huh? I was hoping for more of a Larry King. I guess I'll have to work on it.

    I wanted to mention that the taste at the end was the first time I'd tasted Chandon Brut in years, and I was pretty impressed. Off camera, you can tell that Tom is very happy with the product he puts out under $20. So am I. It's a little soft, but very drinkable. A solid thumbs up at this price.

    This was a great episode! Very informative, but I did miss Chris this time :)

    One of the best parts of the interview with Tom was when he demonstrated how to properly and safely open up a bottle of bubbly. That was a great visual tip to share with viewers.

    On another note- Where was the love for fried foods and Chandon? Gotta say it, fried calamari and Chandon Brut is Um,um good!

    I can't honestly say I've ever had Chandon with calamari. I usually go with something lean, still, and waxy when I'm frying squid. But I certainly agree with the premise, and I'll have to give it a try. Heck, if it involves fat, salt, and sparkling wine… I'm in!
