During the Grand Champagne Tasting, three masterclasses will be offered to ticket holders on a first come, first serve basis at no additional cost, including:

1:00 PM – Krug Champagne. Winemaker Jérôme Jacoillot will explore a vertical tasting of six Krug Grande Cuvée Editions. Every year, the recreation of Krug Grande Cuvée represents a new edition of the founder’s vision, a vision that goes beyond the very notion of Vintage.

The following wines will be poured:

  • Six consecutive editions of Krug Grande Cuvée: 161, 162, 163, 164, 165, 166
  • Krug Vintage 2004

2:00 PM – Pinot Noir & Chardonnay featuring Bollinger and Ayala. In Champagne production, two grapes reign supreme: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Champagne offers an incredible case study in the possibilities of these two classic varieties. At this seminar, we will explore the complementary contrasts of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Champagne with two top houses. Join us for “A Study of Pinot Noir via Champagne Bollinger & A Study of Chardonnay via Champagne Ayala”!
