Taste Champagne London Postponed – New Date 24 June 2020

The health and wellbeing of guests, exhibitors and staff is the highest priority of Taste Champagne.
We’ve been greatly distressed by the escalation of COVID-19 across Europe, lockdown of Italy and pending potential of social distancing measures in the UK.

We have therefore made the difficult decision to postpone Taste Champagne 2020 to Wednesday 24 June 2020.
The full program including all masterclasses will proceed unchanged on this date.

There is no need for existing ticket holders to register again, simply download your updated ticket from the link in your original ticket notice email.
Trade passes and public tickets are available for our new date.

We very much look forward to showcasing 304 cuvées from 57 houses under better circumstances on 24 June 2020.

Any queries please contact Jody Rolfe, Event Manager, jodyrolfe@winepress.com.au

Taste Champagne 2020 is proud to introduce specially focused masterclass sessions for the first time, hosted by Champagne’s top houses.

Tickets are available now and places are strictly limited.

The depths and heights of Veuve Clicquot

‘No house has achieved so much on such a scale over the past decade as Veuve Clicquot. This masterclass explores the depths
of its fabled reserve cellar and the profound impact on its non-vintage cuvées, and the heights that this beloved house
achieves in its lauded prestige cuvées, La Grande Dame Rosé 2008 and La Grande Dame 2008 and 1989!’ – Tyson Stelzer

You know Veuve Clicquot for its Yellow Label, the famed icon and signature of the house since 1877. This session is all about
exploring the brand’s history and understanding the innovations of the house, with hidden gems such as Extra Brut Extra Old
and most notably the champagne that owes its extraordinary history to one pioneering woman, La Grande Dame! We will be showcasing
the current vintage of La Grande Dame 2008 (blanc and rosé) as well as diving into our cellar to enjoy the rarity of La Grande Dame 1989.
