Take a Load Off Fanny!

The Comité Interprofessionnel du vin de Champagne (CIVC) is mulling changing to lighter bottles to save on production and transportation costs, reported the FT yesterday.

If satisfied by the trials with lighter Champagne bottles now underway at G.H. Mumm the CIVC would approve use of them by producers.

I can't wait. Lighter Champagne bottles would reduce their shipping costs to our customers, but frankly it would be most beneficial to my aging back!
