Join Master Sommelier and noted wine educator Geoff Kruth for this comprehensive exploration and tasting of Champagnes from the finest houses.  Traditionally a blended wine dominated by large producers, Champagne has in recent years seen a surge in récoltant manipulant wines – small-lot, grower-produced wines bottled by the farmers who grew the grapes.  But can bigger still mean better?

A comprehensive exploration and tasting of Champagnes from the finest houses.

 

Kruth will examine the Grande Marques and their historical dominance in the marketplace.  We’ll taste through a line-up of the very best names in Champagne – brands synonymous with luxury – as we assess the quality and contemporary value of these legendary bubbles.
