Cheese+Fromage offers a plethora of Grower Champagnes from across France that each have a storied history attached to them. Indeed, you can savour this luxurious beverage in congenial company by attending the Champagne & Cheese Tasting Experience at their Covent Garden branch.


The host Marc introduces himself as somebody who likes to talk a lot whilst drinking Champagne. Indeed, his compendious knowledge captivated all attendees who marvelled at the intricacies of Champagne production and taste.


Marc also declared his foolproof methodology on how to open a Champagne bottle. Simply put you twist the corkscrew six times and he demonstrated this on several occasions throughout the evening to leave nobody in doubt. He also points out what the key symbols denote on various bottles, something that is often overlooked when purchasing Champagne!

Amongst the four Champagnes sampled over the two hours is Colin 1er Cru ‘Blanche de Castille’ Brut NV that is 100% Chardonnay. This is accompanied with Tartines ‘Montbeliarde’ that is a sourdough bread with smoky sausages topped with melted Morbier. Furthermore, the cheese tasting element is not just nibbles on a toothpick but instead notable portions that ensure you can fully appreciate the aroma of all the flavours that it brings.

About Ranjit Shergill

I love opinions whether I agree or disagree with them and as such writing presents me with the golden opportunity to share my views across a large landscape of readers. My aspiration is to draw viewership from all backgrounds, thereby reaching out to a worldwide audience. Whilst on a flight to India when I was seven years old I sang jingle bells for the whole duration of the flight. This subsequently led to my growing interests in aviation and indeed travelling. I currently work in Sports Analytics and see my job as a privilege getting to watch sport which most followers would do for free! It is safe to say that I am addicted to travelling, whether it be going on off the beaten track experiences that I endured during my trip through the backroads of Central America or going on city bike tours in glamorous settings such as the River Danube. I embrace cultural hotspots and feel that travelling combines exciting adventures with humbling life experiences. I currently reside in my hometown of Harrow in London, United Kingdom. Given that London is one of the most visited and storied cities in the world, I feel very privileged to have grown up in such an environment. !
