Our Nov 22 $100 Champagne Tasting teaser #1 Champagne menu for the event: -2009 Pierre Gimonnet Special Club -2008 Gaston-Chiquet Special Club -2012 Mousse Rosé Special Club (the only Rose Special Club ever made) What is the Special Club? In 1971, a small group of farmers in Champagne, France banded together in order to provide a voice and identity for their brethren against the famous big Champagne houses. These farmers sit on some of the most precious land in all of Champagne and historically would sell their grapes to the famous champagne names (Moet, Veuve, Krug, etc.) but over time, some made the decision to make their own wine from their own prized vineyards.
These quality-oriented producers became known as the “Club de Tresors” and hold the highest standards for production, and there are now 28 prestigious members of this society. In the greatest years, they produce a “Special Club” bottling; their very best wine, which are often limited to just a few hundred bottles. This tasting will be an experience of three of these “Special Clubs.”
