Virtual Tasting: Special Club Champagne!

Nov 29
11:00 AM Pacific Time
Get ready to behold artisan Champagne, with this exclusive tasting of two extremely limited bottlings from grower members of the Club Tresors. Club Tresors (which is French for "treasures") is an association of like-minded Champagne producers committed to:
  • Wines crafted in their own tiny cellars, produced exclusively from top vineyards that they own and farm themselves.
  • Special Club bottlings are produced only in excellent, distinctive vintage years. Non-vintage (NV) blends may not achieve the Special Club designation.
  • The Special Club designation reserved exclusively for wines that pass two strict, expert blind tastings, and that are aged for a minimum of 3 years on the yeast before disgorgement.
You know you love Champagne, but few Champagne drinkers are aware of how unique and special it is for growers of Champagne grapes to actually produce wine from them. Yet think of how many great chefs have turned to farming their own ingredients to have full control over the food quality--whether it's the great Thomas Keller of the French Laundry employing a full-time staff to tend his gardens across the street from the restaurant, or the inimitable Vitaly Paley cultivating vegetables and honeybees on the hotel roof where his restaurant is located. Likewise, controlling quality from the grape to the glass, and sourcing from only top sites in the Champagne region, help these bespoke producers ensure these are like-no-other wines. We only got a small allotment of these 2-bottle tasting packs which include Forget-Chemin 1er Cru 2014, based on Meunier and Chardonnay grapes and no Pinot Noir, and Fresnet-Juillet Grand Cru 2015 based on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. As such, I encourage you to snag one of the specially-priced two-packs and taste along so you can get first dibs on the rest of the allocation that came to the US, before it is gone. See purchase links below. I'll be joined by Grace Under Pressure's Special Club Champagne guru Jessica DiFede to guide us in this tasting and, weather and safety permitting, we will be together (at a safe distance). Note: The wines for this tasting are sold and shipped by Grace Under Pressure, a wine importer and retailer licensed in the state of California. All are invited to join the live broadcast. Purchasers of the Champagne will receive a special link for priority access to chat/Q&A.
