  2. Champagne Leclerc Briant Seminar

    Champagne Leclerc Briant Seminar

    Leclerc Briant is a trailblazing Champagne house producing wines of singular energy and nerve. Lucien Leclerc founded the winery with four hectares of vineyards in Cumières in 1872. The business moved to Épernay in 1955 when Bertrand Leclerc married Jacqueline Briant and formed the négociant firm which still carries their name. Leclerc Briant was an early adopter of organic practices beginning in the 1960’s and was one of the first to bottle single-vineyard Champagnes starting in the 1970’s. In the late 1980’s, Bertrand and Jacqueline’s son, Pascal, began integrating biodynamic principles and part of the production has been Demeter certified since 2003. Today, enologist Hervé Jestin continues the legacy of this visionary house which only produces only around 120,000 bottles!

    Our educator, Pierre Bettinger grew up in Reims, went to college in the Loire Valley, and has always worked in the wine industry. Formally the Export Director of Duval-Leroy, Pierre joined Leclerc Briant as the Sales Director where he has increased exports to more than 30 countries!

  9. Champagne Gosset Seminar

    Champagne Gosset Seminar

    Founded in Aÿ in 1584 by Pierre Gosset, Champagne Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne. For more than four centuries, the preservation of style, elegance and family traditions in the making of Gosset champagne has been paramount. Champagne Gosset’s reputa­tion for high-quality starts in the vineyard, where they source grapes almost entirely from premier cru and grand cru vineyards.

    Unlike most champagne produc­ers, Gosset carefully avoids malolactic fermentation and uses extended lees aging to expose the terroir and produce dynamic, age-worthy cuvées. Gosset champagnes are made with extreme care and kept in dark cellars for four to five years for non-vintage wines — and up to seven for vintage champagnes and 10 for the CELEBRIS cuvées — before release.

    Export Director, Bertrand Verduzier of Gosset who has vast experience in the champagne industry including stints with Pernod, Moët & Chandon, Dom Perignon and Champagne Henriot educates us on the beauty and elegance of these wines for a truly outstanding experience.

    Featured Champagne:

    NV Champagne Gosset Grand Réserve
    NV Gosset Grand Rosé
    Champagne Gosset Millésimé 2006
    NV Champagne Gosset Grand Blanc de Blancs

  10. Old Pulteney Tasting with Distiller, Malcolm Waring

    Old Pulteney Tasting with Distiller, Malcolm Waring

    The Old Pulteney Distillery is an iconic distillery founded in 1826 in the farthest corner of northern Scotland. They produce a cult whisky known for its salty ocean undertones and its heavy oily, mouthfeel. Old Pulteney creates the viscous maritime quality without the use of peat. At this tasting we will learn how Old Pulteney accomplishes this from the head distiller himself, Malcolm Waring. Malcolm is back for the first time in four years and has over 30 years of distilling experience and knows every inch of the stills and every nook and cranny of the unusual Old Pulteney warehousing. Don't miss a great educational experience and this ridiculous opportunity to taste incredibly old and rare whisky with the man who made it all!
