ELLORY ATTENDS LA FETE DU CHAMPAGNE
Peter Liem and Daniel Johnnes were pleased to present La Fête du Champagne, a celebration of the wines of Champagne with over 30 of the region’s most highly-regarded producers in London on the 3rd – 4th November for a weekend of events to include tastings, seminars, and a festive Gala Dinner.
It was quite a weekend with a whole host of special events. Ellory was at the Grand Tasting, serving up a a special canapé with some of the greatest Champagnes.
This was a truly unique event and we were delighted to be a part of it.
One of the weekend’s must-attend events, the Grand Tasting offered guests a selection of wines from each participating producer, totalling over 100 different Champagnes accompanied by a selection of small plates from some of London’s most acclaimed restaurants.
The culmination of La Fête du Champagne, the Gala Dinner was at The Savoy, one of London’s preeminent venues. Three-Michelin-starred Chef Arnaud Lallement of l’Assiette Champenoise in Reims will collaborate with chefs including our very own James Knappett of Kitchen Table, Jonny Lake of The Fat Duck, and Isaac McHale of The Clove Club in preparing a luxurious, Champagne-friendly, multi-course menu. In addition to enjoying the special bottles provided by all attending producers, guests were invited to bring bottles of Champagne from their own cellars to share throughout the room. It was a Champagne-soaked celebration with some of the region’s finest winemakers.
