Experience a tasting of one of the greatest vintages ever in Champagne. When the 2008s were released, words like “ecstasy”, “elegance”, “vibrant”, “dream”, and “greatest ever” were used to describe the quality of this vintage. Despite what was a difficult and wet start to the vintage, it was eventually turned around with miraculously beautiful weather in the final two weeks before harvest. Many growers were even prepared to call it a complete bust, but to their joy, the sun returned just in time to create some spectacular wines and to create this legendary vintage.
Taste through an excellent line up consisting of the best names in the region. From the hottest growers on the market such as Bruno Paillard or Philipponat to the long-established Grand Marques such as Bollinger and Taittinger. Was this really a miracle year for everyone? Time to find out for yourself!
