Settled into your holiday home somewhere around Spa, and fancy an evening of something a bit different? Then invite Renaud, a champagne specialist, over for an unforgettable tasting session that’ll captivate all of your senses...
Renaud is passionate about wine, and it’s something he's always had an interest in. So, it was only natural that it became his occupation. His experience comes from his training in oenology, alongside stays in various vineyards at the very heart of the wine-producing regions. That’s where he developed a taste for champagne, a rather “unique” product that he fell head over heels for! The bubbles burst, fizz, and resonate, and those with a grasp on their universe can understand this powerful form of self-expression... He headed out looking for winemakers, visiting vineyards, and selecting the champagnes he fell in love with on site. Renaud prefers smaller winemakers and organisations, because that’s where he can find real hidden gems. And let me tell you, he loves sharing his passion, both to introduce you to the world of champagne as well as to help you discover, taste, and go on a journey via your taste buds...
Share friendly moments and some good bubbly
Renaud will arrive to your holiday home with champagne flutes and a selection of five champagnes, which he’ll take great pleasure in tasting with you as he shares his knowledge and experience. He’ll teach you about the secrets of champagne making (the Champagne method), how the grapes are harvested, the differences between the regions in Champagne, the processes that take place before bottling, and different tasting techniques... You’ll come away with a wealth of information you can impress your friends with in the future! And to further savour this exceptional moment, as an Ardennes-étape member you’ll be offered some savoury accompaniments (sausage, little cubes of cheese, some crisps...) to complement your bubbly tasting session. And if you fall in love with one (or more) of the champagnes you try, you’ll get 5% off the first bottle you buy!
