Following our brilliant evening a few years ago with Kevin McKee, UK Director of Family Taittinger, we had another treat at Fredericks with a marvellous Champagne selection.
The evening included a tasting, hosted by Kevin, of a range of their finest Champagnes matched with a delicious three course dinner in Frederick’s private club room.
We tried their signature Cuvee of the house through to their prestigious cuvee Comtes de Champage 2006 made in tiny quantities and only in exceptional years, the ultimate expression of Taittinger.
Alongside Comtes we had the unique opportunity to try Domaine Carneros Le Reve 2007, from Taittinger’s joint venture in California. Le Reve (“The Dream”) is Domaine Carneros’ masterpiece. A prestige cuvee made from almost 100% Chardonnay grapes. This is arguably America’s greatest sparkling wine.
