Do you love Champagne? Are you an avid drinker or collector of the finest bubbles in the world? Then you don't want to miss your chance to do BOTH on Monday, September 28th, at an exclusive tasting. If you cannot join us for the tasting, pre-sale bottle prices can be accessed through this event page.
Join us at Garagiste Wine Room | Merchant as we partner with Champagne Taittinger in a FIRST EVER open-to-the-public Champagne tasting and 2008 Comtes de Champagne release tasting AND bottle sale!
Be among the first in Las Vegas and, indeed, the country to taste the much lauded and sought after 2008 vintage of this legendary Taittinger Tete-de-Cuvee.
In previous years, this event has only been open to Sommeliers and buyers for some of the Strip's most-awarded restaurants in an annual event called "Somm Night Out." However, due to the circumstances of this year, Champagne Taittinger has decided to open the tasting to a limited number of public ticket-holders in a sit-down, socially distanced tasting led by Champagne Taittinger Brand Ambassador Mathew Semancik.
YOUR $65 TASTING EVENT TICKET INCLUDES:
* 2008 "Comtes de Champagne", Grands Crus Blanc de Blancs
This is the Special Feature of the event as the 2008 vintage in Champagne is one of the best of the last 20 years. The 2008 vintage of Comtes de Champagne has never been released in the U.S. and ticket-holders will be the first to be given the opportunity to taste this rare bottling.
(Also available for purchase.)
* 2007 "Comtes de Champagne," Grands Crus Blanc de Blancs
Paired with the newly released 2008 vintage, the pouring of the 2007 vintage will be a great opportunity to taste two great Champagne vintages side by side. Poured from extremely-limited Magnum bottles.
(750mL bottles are available for purchase.)
* Taittinger "La Francaise," Brut
Our house cuvee and a perfect Champagne for everyday.
* Taittinger "Prestige." Brut Rose
* Taittinger "Prelude," Grand Crus, Brut
Fruit sourced from 100% Grand Cru vineyards.
* Taittinger "Nocturne," Blanc Sec (Magnum)
* Taittinger "Nocturne," Sec Rose
Limited food pairings will also accompany the tasting.
