Champagne and the City

As someone who considers herself to be pretty au fait with Champagne, I was curious when the invite came from Champagne house Jacquart for its 50th anniversary and launch of their new ‘Mosaic collection’. I will admit I didn’t know them as well other brands but, partial to an odd glass or two, I wanted to find out more.

Trendy City venue SushiSamba - known known for its spectacular views - didn't let us down and twinkling lights of London were providing a perfect background to the sparkling Champagne. They always say you should make a dramatic entrance and the glass external elevator that whizzes you up the 39 floors was party fascinating, partly terrifying, but boy – what a way to start a party!

Inside we were treated to waiters swirling around with Magnums of Champagne Jacquart Rosé. I have to say that I found it absolutely delicious – rosé can be overly sweet but this has a perfect balance and very easy to drink. Handy considering I had around six glasses in total!

Laurent Reinteau, Managing Director of Champagne Jacquart, explained how it was founded in 1964 and their vineyards represents 2400 hectares, which accounts for 7% of the total Champagne region. Not bad for a brand unheard of by many.

It’s easy to be snobby about Champagne and wine, and personally I like to keep things simple and go with what I like. Now admittedly, drinking Champagne while overlooking The Gherkin is a fine introdcution to a new brand, but I look forward to seeing Champagne Jacquart become a more recognised name and drinking more of it in the future. Currently stocked in Mayfair, I would recommend it...After all, it’s nice to be in-the-know and introduce others to a new label.

Champagne Jacquart Rose Magnum, available from www.hedonism.co.uk priced at £84.70
