Jean-Remy Rapeneau’s family’s Victoire Brut Prestige has been available in the Ontario market for nigh on a decade. A bit of a sleeper hit at the Good Food Revolution offices, this champagne represents some of the best value that we have ever seen from Champagne, not a region usually known for its bargains. We shall be reviewing this amazingly accessible ($39.75!) Champagne in next week’s issue of GFR.
We sat down with the Gallically flamboyant Jean-Remy for a lunch at Toronto’s Cluny Bistro, accompanied by a few glasses of Victoire Brut Prestige, naturally. It worked like a charm with the Seafood Shore Lunch of battered whitefish, shrimp, and frites.

Edinburgh-born/Toronto-based Sommelier, consultant, writer, judge, and educator Jamie Drummond is the Director of Programs/Editor of Good Food Revolution… And he thinks that Jean-Remy looks a little like comedic actor Matt Berry.
