Champagne Louis Roederer

May 19th Louis Roederer! 6-7:30pm – Louis Roederer – Join us for a fantastic celebration of one of the greatest Champagne houses, Louis Roederer! This is one of my favorite Maisons because their wines show incredible depth and complexity while retaining elegance, plus they’re the largest biodynamic farmer in Champagne. If all of that isn’t enough, Roederer is the house behind Cristal, despite its history with hip hop culture, it is truly one of the greatest champagnes.

 

Cydni Challacombe will be representing Roederer for this tasting and between us we’ll share fascinating stories of our experiences with this iconic producer. During the tasting, we’ll enjoy Louis Roederer Brut Premier NV, Blanc de Blancs Brut 2009, Vintage 2008, Brut Nature 2009, Rosé 2009, and Cristal 2009!  $75 per person includes generous tastes of all of the champagnes, stories, and a few surprises. Please RSVP to info@ambonnaybar.com if you would like to join us!
