Event Description

Veuve Cliquot, Bollinger, Louis Roederer, Pol Roger, Moet et Chandon, Taittinger? Have you ever wondered which champagne you like the best?
This is your chance to find out. 

"I recently attended the blind champagne tasting class in Brighton. Jonny who runs the class is very informative and keeps it fun with interesting facts. You get a lot of champagne for your money and for 2 hours it is good value. You also get some nice nibbles and cheese. I would recommend this tasting for wine enthusiasts or to buy as a gift for someone." Anka M

Join us at our exclusive Grandes Marques Champagnes tasting and you will be able to taste these six world famous champagnes:

Pol Roger Brut Reserve NV
Churchill's favourite champagne. Founded in 1849. 

Veuve Cliquot NV
Distinctive orange label. Madame Cliquot is an important figure in Champagne. Founded in 1772. 

Louis Roederer Collection Cuvée 242 Brut NV
Family owned house. Also make Cristal, the original prestige cuvee. Founded in 1776.

Moet et Chandon Brut Imperial NV
The largest Champagne house of them all. Makers of Dom Perignon. Founded in 1743.

Taittinger Brut Reserve NV
Family run house. Elegant champagnes with origins back to 1734.

Bollinger Special Cuvée NV
Care and craft are the hallmarks of this Champagne house. Founded in 1829. 

The term Grandes Marques refers to a club of the best known and better quality champagne houses. I have chosen six of my favourite champagnes from this group to share with you.

We will taste the champagnes blind and score them for taste and enjoyment. As usual there will be some light nibbles to accompany the wines.

You will get the chance to find out how champagne is made, the styles of champagne available, the difference between non vintage, vintage and prestige cuvees and some of the history behind each of the six champagnes we are tasting.
