Champagne Jayne (aka Jayne Powell) back in court Monday 13th April

Kind of amusing to see Champenoise honouring Jayne, 
who they later alleged 'tarnished' Champagne's image  

Jayne Powell (Champagne Jayne) and the CIVC will be back in the Australian Federal Court in Melbourne on Monday 13th April 2015 at 10.15. Both sides will submit their closing submissions after which the Judge will then make his conclusion, and in due course will advise both parties of his decision.

Jayne Powell will have her new legal team with her in court.

It is still possible to contribute to Jayne's legal expenses at Go Fund Me. The total now stands at $1850. 

I await the court's verdict with great interest. Both side in this for high stakes – neither can afford to lose!


I am still enjoying a Champagne-free 2015. No great hardship when there are both quality English sparkling wines about as well as those from the Loire. Have recently enjoyed Philippe Foreau's 2007 Vouvray Reserve and his 2010 as well as our long standing close relationship with Triple Zéro from Jacky Blot. 

Considering submitting 'Champagne – no thanks!' as a trademark.
