Several years ago, a friend told me about having "Russian" champagne when she was growing up in Germany in the late '60s and early '70s. All she could tell me was that this champagne was from somewhere near the Black Sea in what was then the Soviet Union.
Today, quite by chance, I noticed champagnes from Ukraine and Moldova in a local liquor store here in New Jersey. Is this something new or have these wines been around all the time and I just haven't noticed them? Are there any brand names to look for? Are any of them any good??? I can't find any previous info about them on this site.
