Which Champagne is the best for Celebrating your Master Thesis Defence?

Summer is here, which means Master Thesis hand in and your final exam defending it. But before you can claim your new academic title and celebrate with family and friends, you have one big decision left to make - which champagne will you be popping?

|   12. Jun 2017

You’ve been a slave to the books for the past five years and now it’s finally time to have your last exam and celebrate your new academic degree. The anxiety and stress is taking over your body, as you prepare your Master Thesis Defence, but we all know it’s the doubt about which champagne you should drink after the exam that’s worrying you.

But fear no more, CBS Wire has contacted CBS Wine to help you choose the best bottle of bubbly for your big day.

“Usually there are some kind of cake or berries for the celebration, as far as we have been able to see, which makes it a little tricky to choose the champagne” says Julian JP Johansen and Victor Hermansen from CBS Wine and adds:

“In general, one should always go for ‘real’ champagne from the Champagne region in France. We would in general recommend dry champagne, called Brut if nothing is served on the side, but if cake and let’s say strawberries are served, then a Demi-Sec is the best option. Demi-sec means half-dry, but is essentially half-sweet, which is a lot better for the sweet sides.”

Victor highlights two specific champagnes as good choices:

  • Louis Roederer, Carte Blanche, Demi-Sec
  • Jean Vesselle, Demi-Sec Rosé

He does however add to his recommendation that all demi-sec champagne should work well with cake and strawberries.

So there you have it – the answer to all your worries. All you have to do now is pass your exam and then the bottle popping can begin.

Good luck and cheers!

    Layoffs break the crucial trust between organisation and employee

    CBS is laying off a number of employees soon, which will affect our university in different ways. When employees are fired without having done anything wrong, it shatters the trust between the organisation and employees, while also taking a toll on productivity, according to a CBS expert. Layoffs also affect the ‘survivors’, who are forced to adapt to a changed workload and the loss of cherished colleagues.
