Wines of Champagne

Presented by Chris Baggetta, Champagne Specialist for
Moët Hennessy USA

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

 

Champagne. The very word is practically synonymous with luxury and celebration. As famous as it is,
though, Champagne still manages to be underappreciated. Its reputation as a wine for special occasions
belies its amazing ability to pair perfectly with a wide array of foods. Join us at Altius on May 31st as we
take a virtual tour of Champagne by sampling a range of styles from some of the greatest producers that the
region has to offer, all paired with a special tasting menu from Chef Jessica Bauer.
