Description

Our last Guided Wine Tasting Workshop of 2017 is Celebrating Vintage Champagne on Saturday November 25th in La Voûte at the Angleterre & Résidence in Ouchy, Lausanne (see directions below). Doors open at 6.30 pm and the 1½ hour expert guided tasting begins at 7.00pm. We also provide a selection of smoked salmon and cheeses for your enjoyment.

Champagne is one of the few wines - if not the only one - that can generate great excitement before a single bottle has been opened and lift the mood of any occasion from the very first sip. The name alone conjures up images of celebration, success, luxury and a lifestyle to which many aspire.

At first sight there might appear to be relatively little difference between the wines, other than the house name on the label. While most champagnes are made from a blend of multiple years' harvests (known as Non-Vintage Champagnes), there is a separate, smaller yet very significant category of champagnes produced from a single year's harvest. Known as Vintage Champagnes they deliver a richer and more food-friendly wine experience and also promise the ageing potential of truly great wine.

Experience the following seven remarkable Vintage Champagnes:

  • Hostomme - Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut 2007

  • Vilmart - Grand Cellier d'Or Brut Premier Cru 2011

  • Marie-Courtin - Efflorescence Extra Brut 2010

  • Pol Roger - Brut 2008

  • Veuve Clicquot - Brut 2008

  • René Geoffroy - Extra Brut 2005

  • Bollinger - La Grande Année Brut 2005

Learn more about each of the wines and find out which wines make the best match for which foods. Our wine tasting events are a perfect opportunity to discover new wines, meet other wine lovers and make new friends.

Places are limited so we advise you to book now to avoid disappointment. Please feel free to forward this invitation to any friends who also appreciate Champagne and want to discover more in the world of wine.

We look forward to seeing you there.
