Champagne 101 v3.0

  • Swirl Wine Bar & Market 3143 Ponce De Leon Street New Orleans, LA, 70119 United States (map)

Let's start at the very beginning.....

So, you've heard about the Bubblyothèque champagne classes at Swirl.  Maybe you've read some of the class descriptions and thought "that sounds a little over my head - I just want the basics!"  Well, that's just what we have in store in June.  

I love having a very dedicated group of people who come to my tastings month after month.  It's a true pleasure to share new bottles with people who have been on the whole journey and now have a shared tasting experience.  But, these champagne experts all started at the very first class with me, now 2 years ago.  As you know, I want to help as many people as possible learn about champagne and how to enjoy it and what makes it so special.  I know that wine in general, and champagne in particular, can be a little intimidating if you're just getting into it.  Trust me - I was a total newbie when I got into it, and I definitely remember feeling like I was out of my league.  Some of my favorite moments sharing these wines with people are when it really "clicks" for the first time.

To that end, we're going to re-visit the "Champagne 101" format of the very first class at Swirl.  We'll cover all of the basics you need to know about champagne, through the story and the wines of 5 different champagne houses.  Afterwards, you'll be ready to jump into any of the upcoming classes and feel like an expert yourself.  

Of course, even if you've come to classes before, you are more than welcome to come back.  It is still a goal to continue to open new bottles.  We have been fortunate over the past couple of years to get access to more and more champagne, and that allows us to keep all of these classes novel and interesting, even for the dedicated tasters.  

So, if you've been waiting to jump on the Bubblyothèque train, or it's been a while and you want a refresher (we miss you!), or you just want the champagne and don't even mind hearing me talk about the champagne process for the 25th time - this is the class for you!
