In a blender, combine the champagne vinegar, honey, shallots, mustard and garlic. Purée until smooth, 10 to 15 seconds. While continuing to blend, slowly drizzle the olive oil into the blender through the opening in the lid until the dressing is smooth and emulsified. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside until ready to use, or store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
