Like Fry and Laurie or strawberries and cream, there’s something inherently natural about the relationship between fizz and Christmas time, isn’t there?
So is it any wonder then, that – in an entirely selfless manner you understand – The Wine Gang is holding another event at the end of this year, one that’s entirely dedicated to Champagne.
But not just any old Champagne. Oh no, no, no, this is a night of unparalleled fizzy joy with some of the best in the business showing their wares.
That includes Dom Pérignon, yes Dom Pérignon, one of my personal favourites, and a house that I happen to think is ALWAYS worth the money. That effortless blend of delicacy and structure – it’s a wine that never fails to blows my mind.
Think how happy I am then, to be the one who introduces Dom Pérignon to our special and intimate audience of 30 lucky people.
But this event is about way more than each Wine Gang member standing up and saying here’s XYZ house, here’s where they’re based and this is their winemaking specialisms. This is about sharing our enthusiasm, fondness and respect for a chosen house and in that spirit, each Wine Gang member will introduce a house that’s special to them on this evening, namely:
Anthony – Bollinger
David – Gosset
Joanna – Laurent-Perrier
Tom – Taittinger
And as you know, me – Dom Pérignon
So, essentially the deal is a night supping and savouring 10 gorgeous Champagnes as we personally take you through each one, not to mention mouthwatering canapés and a goodie bag to boot.
Sounds like Christmas come early to me.
