Join me for a prestige Champagne tasting

Imagine tasting Dom Pérignon and Taittinger Comtes de Champagne in the same night. Dream on? OK, let’s add Bollinger La Grande Année, Gosset Grande Réserve and Laurent-Perrier Rosé to the line-up. Cloud cuckoo land? No, The Wine Gang’s Prestige Champagne Tasting on Tuesday
11th December in central London. It’s from 6–9pm, giving the five of us time to present 10 great Champagnes, two from each of the five houses, and time to break for canapés and a chat with our select group of attendees. There’s even a goodie bag to take home which includes a bottle of Champagne from one of these five great houses.

Drool over the detailed programme and then the full tasting list below, but don’t spend too long because the event is strictly limited to 30 participants, however many ticket applications. 

Nitty gritty: tickets cost £130 per person, to include all of the above (see full list of Champagnes below). Send an email to telling us how many tickets you require. We will hold the tickets and issue BACS or cheque payment instructions. Alternatively you may pay instantly, using credit or debit card
