The 'Champagne Challenge' Tasting

  • Feb 1, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Champagne is the king of fizz but there are lots of other great sparkling wines from around the world who would like to claim that crown. So even when these other contenders are made with the same grapes and by the same method, is Champagne always better?

In this fascinating tasting we will try 5 different pairs, one from Champagne and one high quality sparkling wine from another country. The wines will be matched as evenly as possible, so for instance there will be:

- a pair of Vintage Blanc de Blancs

- a pair where the blend is approximately 50/50 Chardonnay/Pinot Noir

- a pair where Pinot Noir dominates the blend

The wines will be served 'Blind' so we won't know which is which, and we will take a vote on each pair to see if we can pick out the Champagne. Should be a lot of fun!

This tasting will be held 'seminar style' seated around one table and limited to 12 people - so nearly a bottle per head! A few nibbles will be served before the tasting and then afterwards a range of fine cheeses, pates and breads. All this for just £32.50 per head!
