CORD by Le Cordon Bleu is pleased to be hosting a special Tasting Masterclass and Menu Pairing in collaboration with Gosset on Monday 18th September.
In celebration of the renowned Gosset Matchmakers competition Cord is holding not one, but two events open to the general public to taste and enjoy Gosset Champagne. The oldest Champagne House, Gosset is known for the unique personality of its cuvées. Founded in 1584, the quality of Gosset wines, its style and its taste all remain unchanged, immutably reflecting the uniqueness of the Champagne terroirs and the atypical personality of the House.
The two exciting events will feature a one hour tasting masterclass hosted by Bertrand Verduzier, Gosset’s Global Business Director and Matthieu Longuere MS, Wine Development Manager for Le Cordon Bleu London. In addition there will be a unique menu created by Cord’s expert chef team, paired with a specially selected flight of Gosset Champagnes.
Over the course of one hour, the hosts will guide you through a selection of four Gosset Champagnes, highlighting the differences between each and identifying the unique character of the wines. The wines featured in the tasting are; Gosset 12 ans de cave aminima rose, Gosset CELEBRIS Rose 2008, Gosset CELEBRIS Blanc de Blancs 2012 and Gosset Petite Douceur Rosé.
Following the tasting there will be a Gosset Menu Pairing, which can be booked individually or alongside the masterclass. This special three-course dinner will feature dishes designed by Cord’s expert chef team to pair with Gosset Champagnes;
