London Branch has been invited to attend a special tasting of Champagnes presented by the grower, Philippe Brugnon and importer Julian White. This will be a walk round tasting with canapés. The following Premier Cuvées will be shown
The Non-Vintage Brut
The Cuvée ‘Elégance’
The Rosé Brut
Vintages 2011, 2009, 2008 and 2006
The majority of these will be available for purchase at discount prices.
Philippe Brugnon’s family have been vignerons for four generations owning Premier Cru vineyards in Rilly le Champagne and in Ecueil. His NV Brut and Cuvee Elegance Champagnes are made from a combination of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier grapes, but unusually his Rose is 100% Pinot Noir. Extensive caves allow him to age the wine in bottle for 2 to 4 years before release. Julian White is well-known to members of IWFS; he will be leading a tour to Champagne for us in 2018 as part of the London Festival.
