Champagne and Sparkling Wine (Chelmsford)
Come along and enjoy a decadent evening of fine sparkling wines! For many people the glass of fizz at the start of the meal is the most enjoyable drinks of the evening, so we thought- lets have a whole tasting devoted to them!
These are wines which are truely crafted by the wine maker, the processes involved in making the wine sparkle or concentrating its sugars, are the key here. We will try different Champagne look-a-likes from the New World, alongside a glass of the real thing! We will taste a selection of sweet wines and learn about the three key ways of creating that sweeter style. It is sure to be a fascinating and delicious evening!
Champagne is one of the most iconic wines in the world- tonight we will learn about the historical method which gives us this beautiful bubbly. We will touch on the imput of figures such as Dom Perignon, Lily Bollinger and Veuve Clicquot, whose Champagnes are now so familar to us. We will also discuss the technical terms behind the labels such as 'NV', 'Brut' and 'Blanc de Blanc': what do these actually tell us about the drink inside the bottle? But the world of sparkling wine is far more diverse than Champagne alone; we will examine other wines, made in the image of Champagne, and ask 'are the as good?' and 'are the really so different from the real thing?'. We will look at Cava, Prosecco, Sparklers from the New World and a fabulous English Sparkling Wine.
