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?
