A 'Prestige Cuvée' is a champagne at the very top of a producer's range. It is the highest quality, the most refined - and the most expensive - champagne that the house offers. Think Krug, Cristal, Dom Perignon and Rare. What makes these champagnes so special? Since there are no official guidelines for designating a Prestige Cuvée as there are for other categories of French champagne, this question can only be answered by understanding a champagne house's wine making philosophy and tasting the end result of the wine maker's best effort. This is a seated tasting presented to a small group by Flûte's experts. You will be tasting some of the world's best champagnes and tickets are limited!
Each month, Champagne School offers the opportunity to learn about champagnes or sparkling wines in a tasting guided by Flûte's experts.
