Champagne Tasting & Dinner 2016





Friday 6 May 2016

We are delighted to announce that Champagne AR Lenoble will be hosting our next wine dinner to be held at the Michelin-starred restaurant The Peat Inn, Fife on Friday 6 May 2016.

Champagne AR Lenoble is a secret gem amongst Champagne houses. Long established and still independently run today, it is currently owned by brother & sister duo Antoine and Anne Malassagne (pictured right).

Based in Damery in the Vallee de la Marne in Champagne, it was originally founded by Armand-Raphael Graser a native of Alsace (hence the initials AR).  Antoine and Anne are Graser's great-grandchildren.

They own 18 hectares of vineyards in Chouilly, Bisseuil and Damery.  Their specialities are Chouilly Blanc de Blancs - and they have recently launched a single vineyard cuvee Les Aventures. Their style is deliciously ripe creamy easy-drinking wines.

Christian Holthausen (pictured right), international director of AR Lenoble, will be in attendance at The Peat Inn on Friday 6 May to host a pre-dinner Champagne tasting of five cuvees.  We are delighted to welcome back Christian who is a great friend and a charming host.  He has previously worked for Champagne Charles Heidsieck, as well as English wine estates Nyetimber and Gusbourne.  Guests will be welcomed on arrival by a five cuvee tasting and an introduction to the Champagne AR Lenoble house by Christian.
