I have been tasting and drinking Champagne for 30 years and I do tastings all the time. At the same time, when I have enjoyed Champagne the most, it has been on vacation and bringing the perfect bottle to the perfect place. For fun, I started to experiment, for example in France by taking a couple of bottles up into the mountains with friends to see what Champagne tasted like there; those kinds of experiences were so great, combining nature with the Champagne.
