Description

Join Michael Knisley for a very special tasting of wines from the Club Tresors! This group was originally founded in 1971 by 12 of the oldest families of the Champagne region. Since then, the club has grown to include 29 producers committed to excellence in all aspects of production. This exclusive membership is only open to Recoltant Manipulants, a French designation for a producer of grower Champagne. Champagnes must be produced, bottled and aged at the member’s estate. The Special Club Champagnes represent the tête de cuvee, a premier bottling often carrying a vintage date, selection for each member and are only made in outstanding vintages from grapes harvested from member’s own vineyards. For this tasting Michael will guide us through 4 different Special Club Champagnes (plus one other very special bottle), showcasing the terroir and style of individual growers. Featured wines will include: 2007 J.Lassalle Cuvee Speciale Club Premier Cru Millesime Brut (JS 93pts), 2005 Goutorbe Pere et Fils Special Club Millesime Grand Cru Brut (RP 93pts), 2009 Pierre Gimonnet & Fils Brut Spécial Club (VM 93pts), 2007 Gaston Chiquet Special Club Brut (JS 95pts) and a lagniappe special bottle...reservations are required, only 12 spots available. $45
