Last week, Essi Avellan MW presented an Evolution of Champagne Masterclass at Frederick’s, Islington, during which guests compared old and new vintage champagnes from five leading brands, including:
Charles Heidsieck 1983 & 2005
Dom Pérignon 1996 & 2009
Louis Roederer 2002 & 2012
Pol Roger 2002 & 2009
Taittinger 2002 & 2012
Sparkling wine obsessive Tom Hewson reviewed the event on his blog SixAtmospheres, commenting: “Fizzmongers The Finest Bubble put on a memorable tasting last week with Finnish Master of Wine Essi Avellan, author of the excellent Champagne. Essi was there to talk us through a selection of five pairs of vintage wines, from 2012 back to 1983, all sourced and vouched for by our hosts.”
