Vintage - Champagne Tasting Dinner (Early Bird Special)

Sold out


Vintage champagnes are considered to be the top cuvées for most champagne houses. These champagnes are only made in the years the producer considers to be extraordinary. The greatest vintage champagnes are built to last over decades, most are not released until after a decade of careful cellaring by the champagne house. These are the champagnes you save for the most special moments in life.

We’ve selected some of the best vintages like 2008 which has been heralded as the best year since 1996! Taste the newly released 2008 Cristal which is best Cristal ever made! And of course you’ll also be tasting one of the top champagnes from 1996, the Bollinger RD. 1996 was universally declared as the greatest vintage in Champagne since 1928!

Journey with us as we taste some outstanding champagnes such as the 2002 Salon Blanc de Blancs. Salon is a a tiny champagne house that releases wines only in exceptional years, which is on average about 3 times a decade! Salon is known for their singularity, specialising in making single vintage, single variety champagnes, where all the chardonnay is sourced from grapes grown on 40-year-old vines in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger (one of the greatest crus of the Côte de Blancs). All champagne lovers should experience Salon at least once in their lives!

Join us on this special night as we taste 6 specially selected Champagnes paired with equally inspiring Modern Australian seafood dishes prepared by the Internationally acclaimed head chef James Wallis. Situated at the world-class waterside precinct of Barangaroo, Love Fish prides itself on using the freshest, local ingredients sourced from sustainable producers. This is a unique wining and dining experience you don’t want to miss!

WHEN: 7pm | 12 December 2018
WHERE: LoveFish Barangaroo | 7/23 Barangaroo Ave, Wulugul Walk, Barangaroo

"Zac and I had such a great time, we're still talking about it to this day!! Definitely would want to come back to another dinner for sure" - Leah

"Absolutely loved the event last night. Great selection of diverse samples from a single region! It was both surprising and refreshing. Attila made the event too with his stories and anecdotes. He clearly has a wealth of information! Really looking forward to the next one. The Three Kings will be tantalising." Daniel

"Thank you for making tonight not boring!" - Steve

"I have now been to 2 of your wonderful wine dinners – ‘Noir’ and ‘You say Wine, I say Vino’. They were fabulous nights.

Not only are you great hosts but Attila is a great MC and wine expert. Your evenings provide a no-nonsense story behind every wine so we are truly learning something and appreciating the true craft of wine making. I love the line that “This wine will change your life…..” because it is also about understanding the wine maker and the passion behind the wine that makes every wine unique. You are discerning in your selections and I appreciate the effort which you go to in trying to procure the rare wine vintages you provide. I have enjoyed every wine you have selected so far.

Thank you for your fabulous wine evenings. I will absolutely go to more and highly recommend this to anyone who wants a thoroughly interesting and enjoyable evening." - Sarah
