The World's leading Champagne critic and Master of Wine Essi guides us through the fascinating topic of Blanc de Blancs. It is made in many different styles, the Côte des Blancs is "the home" of Chardonnay in Champagne and today we will explore this region and also look at champagne made from other villages. In addition we will look at the impact of oak as we will taste some “super reductive styles” and some leaning to slightly oxidative in their winemaking. Essi will take time to explain how these winemaking styles impact on what we see in the glass during the tasting. With a spread of vintages we will also demonstrate the ageing ability of Blanc de Blancs, with Palmer & Co 1995 recently disgorged magnum. Come and enjoy a tutored tasting with plenty of chance to ask Essi your questions and join in with the live voting on the TFB app.

Essi Avellan MW - The Champagne Masterclass will be presented by Essi Avellan MW, who just last year completed her comprehensive book on Champagne. Finland’s first Master of Wine, Essi is the author of several wine books and is a reputed wine judge for the Champagne & Sparkling World Wine Championships. Recently Essi has re-written Tom Stevenson's Wine Encyclopedia and the fourth edition is Fredericks outside areanow published and available to buy. Read about Essi Avellan's Champagne book here.

The venue Fredericks - Frederick’s was established in Camden Passage by Louis Segal in 1969, and has been run by the Segal family ever since. Originally a pub (The Duke of Sussex who was named Frederick, hence the name), and then converted into a private house, Louis Segal purchased the property and set about running Frederick’s with no restaurant experience, though plenty of acumen. Since then whilst focusing on our core; excellent food, quality service and wine we have grown by installing The Conservatory in 1982, The Clarence room in 1990 and The Club room in 2014.
