I am wildly excited to be able to welcome the export director of the esteemed Champagne house of Nicolas Feuillatte, M. Olivier Zorel, to VINO this coming Tuesday for a remarkable, and even more remarkably FREE drop-in wine tasting of six of their classic Champagnes. You all know I am a gigantic Champagne fan, so that is one reason I am flipping over this tasting. I can also say that in all my years of doing this wine thing, I have rarely if ever heard of a free-to-the-public tasting of Champagnes of this quality. What I’m saying is that this free busload of French fizz isn’t going to making another stop anytime soon, I promise. We’re going to be able to show not just the regular non-vintage bottles, but also THREE VINTAGE CHAMPAGNES, that will show you why people, yours truly very much included, get all worked up for these wines. This is a stunning lineup, and if you happen to among the unfortunate few who think you don’t really like Champagne, then I would challenge you to say the same thing after tasting these….
