Alliance Française de Bristol is going to have an evening of champagne tasting.

Lionel, specialist in French wines and an ex French teacher, is going to give students taking French tuition in Bristol with their French teachers, as well as their friends, a talk on champagnes followed by some champagne tasting ( dégustation de champagnes).

Here are some of the champagnes on offer:

Champagne Brut Réserve Bérèche     
One of Champagne’s rising stars ( étoile montante), Raphaël Bérèche has been working alongside his father Jean-Pierre at their 9ha estate of Bérèche et Fils since 2004, and today he is putting an increasingly personal stamp on this thoughtfully-run domaine. Bérèche’s wines are full in flavour and finely balanced, always showing a firmness of structure.

Champagne 7Crus Agrapart 
          

Agrapart’s wines are of uniformly excellent quality, with a naturally expressive and vinous character that makes them feel grown rather than made. Les 7 Crus is a consistently reliable value, and the other wines in the range offer increasingly more precise demonstrations of Côte des Blancs terroirs.

Champagne Rosé de Macération B. Lahaye   

Benoit Lahaye is a passionate advocate of natural winegrowing; the estate was fully converted to organic viticulture in 2003, and certified organic ( biologique ) in 2007. Lahaye’s wines are intense without being weighty, showing a vinous, concentrated character that clearly announces an emphasis on quality work in the vineyards.

All rather mouth-watering:  cela vous met l'eau à la bouche!

Here is Lionel explaining how he became passionate about wines in Les vins rares!

 Why not join us on November 2nd at 8pm, for more info...
