We are delighted to bring you a week of events celebrating winemakers whose wines are part of our 2020 Wine Champions offer: the winners of our huge annual blind tasting to find the best of our best for drinking now. Each guest will share the history of their wineries, discuss their own personal journeys and give insight into the range of wines they produce. You will then have the opportunity to ask any questions you might have. Finally at the end of each event, the producers will lead a tasting of the wine our buyers crowned a 2020 Wine Champion.
What better way to kick off our week of Wine Champions winners with a glass of something cold, fizzy and absolutely delicious?
The Champagne house of Louis Brochet has been situated in the foothills of the Montage de Reims since 1881 and has become famous for its selection massale – a process of carefully selecting vinestocks which produced the Pinot Noir d'Ecueil variety (which makes of ¾ of their wines).
Since 2013, the fourth generation of the Brochet family have taken the helm and we're delighted to welcome them to this special event discussing terroir in Champagne, their special variety and the family affair of winemaking.
Wine Champion: Champagne Louis Brocher Premier Cru Brut NV
