What a fantastic evening we had on 16th March at Il Bottaccio in Belgravia.

Around seventy lucky members of gathered at the beautiful mansion to discover five of the most inspiring Champagne makers of today.

The tasting started at 7pm sharp in the cafe whre five tables were on display. Between each one was standing and waiting to make us taste their products no one else than the Champagne houses owners.

On the first table on the left was the House of Soutiran represented by owners Valerie and Patrick Renaux-Soutiran. The crowd has been amazed by the products on display. All Champagnes were Grand Cru and were three in numbers.

The flagship cuvee Grand Cru has been amongst the favorites while the Rose de Saignee has impressed with its depth and off course the unique Perle Noire has been a hit!

Another charming young lady was Marie Doyard of Andre Jacquart Champagnes who brought with her the stunning Premier Cru Vertus Experience and the prestigious Mesnil Experience. Both Blancs de Blancs these Champagnes are truly amazing and many people went back for more.

A riring star then in the name of Eric Rodez from Ambonnay did the trip from Champagne to London especially for the tasting to reveal to the crowd two jewels that are the Cuvee des Crayeres and the Cuvee des Grands Vintages. It has been praised by all tasters as unique and tasteful Champagnes.

Then there was Benoit Tarlant, King of Brut Nature who presented his iconic Zero as well as the award winning Cuvee Louis. This was a pure moment of heaven indeed.

Finaly Boris Politi of Champagne Francois Diligent impressed the attendees with two out of this world Champagnes that were the 0% (Not alcohol free but flavour full!) and the Trois Pinot…amazing!

The event has been a great success indeed and distinguished members were really there for a treat for the senses.
