Modern vs Traditional Champagne

One of the big themes I’ve found in Champagne over the last few years is producers pushing boundaries in almost very way they can, while others stay the course of what’s tried and true. I find both the modernists and the traditionalists make outstanding champagnes, so come explore the differences between the styles and decide which you prefer! We’ll enjoy 7 champagnes from both camps including Louis Roederer, Vouette & Sorbée, Bereche & Fils, and more. $55 per person. Reservations required.
