Yes, a LOLCat reference. Sue me.
There’s still tickets for sale for GiraMondo’s tasting event tomorrow evening, Champagne and Other Bubbles. Back in July I went to an all-champagne tasting and had a good time. Tomorrow’s evening is not just French offerings – as champagne by definition is – but some sparkling wines from Italy, Spain and the US.
During our event the organizer and presenter, Laurent Guinand, brought up a champagne expert who I am afraid my notes do not identify. Tomorrow’s event will include Claude Thibaut, a Virginia-based champagne expert now working on projects at Veritas Vinyards near Charlottesville. I can’t say for sure if it’s the same fellow but I enjoyed the presentation from the fellow at our event. I feel confident that Guinand has lined up a similarly deft speaker if he’s a different one.
So if you’re as fond of the bubbly as I am and looking to spoil yourself slightly, I do recommend the event.
