What can I say, other than we're blessed with an abundance of excellent presenters.  Normally Guy Boursot presents

an excellent range of Burgundy for us.  But on this occasion he excelled himself with a fantastic choice of Champagne and Sparkling wine.  We tasted:

 

Cremant de Bourgogne, Reserve, Bailly-Lapierre

Champagne Richard-Dhondt, Cuvee de Reserve, Brut

Champagne Perrier-Jouet, Grand Brut

Blanc de Blancs, Champagne Richard-Dhondt, Cuvee d'Or, Brut

Tribaut, Blanc de Noirs, Brut Champagne

Champagne Richard-Dhondt, Brut Nature, Grand Cru, Millesime 2008

Champagne Richard-Dhondt, Rose, Premier Cru, Brut

Tribaut, Premier Cru, Demi-Sec Champagne

 

It was interesting to compare the Cremant to the Richard-Dhondt Champagne, and also to compare the Perrier-Jouet to the Blanc de Blancs Richard-Dhondt Champagne.  All of these are of course available on Guy Boursot's web site:  www.boursot.co.uk.

 

A big thank you goes to Jim, Judy, Les & Hillary for buying and preparing our supper.
