What do you know about le champagne?

Come and join Alliance Française students in Bath to hear what Lionel can teach you about different champagnes and of course, to taste them. Lionel, who used to be a French teacher, is now a specialist on French wines. He has a wonderful selection of private photos on champagnes and lots of anecdotes to share with his audience. Anyone with a good GCSE in the French language and an interest in champagnes is welcome.
