Champenois active in the UK market

It’s all been very busy since early September with various Champenois visiting London, the 2013 harvest kicking off on 24 September, plus a three day trip to Champagne from 7 October just as some of the cooler Montagne de Reims grands crus  Pinot Noir vineyards started picking, notably Verzenay. The rest of  October looks very busy too with several supermarkets showing the fizz they have lined up for Christmas at their tastings, plus more London events  involving Cattier, Laurent-Perrier , Piper-Heidsieck and Lanson, to name but four.

Having re-organised things here, I am trying to report on these as they happen while filling in some detail about the almost complete harvest and catching up on some of the excellent champagne events of the past few weeks, like Bruno Paillard’s tasting of different cuvées of his ‘multi-vintage’ Brut Première Cuvée, disgorged seven, 45, 97 and 140 months ago. Future blogging should be more regular and up to date.
