This free, pop up festival is a great chance to taste some extraordinary, small production Champagnes in three different locations. The Champagnes on offer are not the names that have become familiar to us over the last decade but are ones that promise quality and new sensations for your taste buds. The Champagnes offered for tasting are for serious connoisseurs, collectors and sommeliers but also for those wanting to expand their knowledge and tastes when it comes to Champagne. The tastes will surprise you and make you reconsider the Champagnes you buy in the future.
If you were ever tempted to visit the Champagne region in France this may be a good way to be introduced to some of the best boutique, small- production, hand picked grapes transformed into bottles of bubbly exquisiteness. Some of the Champagne on offer will be Agrapart, Oliver Horiot and Delamotte, among many others.
In the words of Brigitte Bardot "Champagne is the one thing that gives me zest when I feel tired " drinking champagne has that effect. Champagne is used to celebrate, commemorate, makes us feel special and is always a sign of good times to be had. Apparently it also does not have any negative effects the following day if you drink copious amounts of it and do not mix it with other alcoholic beverages.
Besides Champagne what is the ideal complement to an enjoyable and sensuous tasting experience? Chocolate of course! Teaming up for this festival, the well-known and loved chocolatier, Koco Black is providing some chocolates to go together with the Champagne - a match made in heaven if you ask me.
Champagne is alwys a good idea no matter where it is enjoyed
