Champagne Masterclasses at Spirit of Christmas

Champagne Masterclasses at Spirit of Christmas

Spirit of Christmas / Condé Nast Luxury Travel Fair 2014

Tuesday 4th – Sunday 9th November

Champagne Louis Roederer was delighted to be the official champagne sponsor for the third year running at Spirit of Christmas and the Condé Nast Luxury Travel Fair.

The two fairs, hosted over five and three days respectively at the start of November, attracted thousands of Christmas shoppers from London and beyond.

In addition to serving Brut Premier, Vintage Rosé and Cristal at the three beautifully branded bars, Champagne Louis Roederer also hosted a masterclass every day, introducing guests to three wines from the house.

Hosted by Mark Bingley MW and Charles King, masterclass participants (re)discovered Brut Premier, the Rosé Vintage 2009 and Carte Blanche – a perfect trio for Christmas. Over the hour-long session, the 60 attendees learnt about the history of the house, the founding principles of Champagne Louis Roederer, as well as the very different flavour profiles of the three wines. The brand was in good masterclass-company, alongside the Dorchester’s head florist, pastry chefs from both Hakkasan and The Savoy, and blend-your own perfume session with Jo Malone.

The masteclass over, the thirsty students could make their way to the Louis Roederer Champagne bar, the Seafood Bar, or the Condé Nast Luxury Travel Fair Bar for a restorative glass of the wines they had just tried.

The Fairs between them attracted over 50,000 affluent shoppers over the course of the five days.
