We had the pleasure of having Christophe Prieux from Gardet champagne visit us on Thursday 18th July.  Maison Gardet was established in the late 19th century when Charles gardet, an entrepreneurial shopkeeper founded the house in Epernay. In the 1930's his son Georges Gardet moved to Chigny-les0Roses to continue the tradition and develop their Champagne brand.The Prieux family who have been in the wine sector for years are now the proud owner of the House. Maison Gardet combines 21st century technology with the tradition inspired by the founder of the House, to produce champagnes of outstanding quality.

On arrival all guest sampled Gardet Brut Tradition along side the canapes of Fish & Chips, Paprika panise with chorizo jam and basil and a Chicken balantine.

For first course the Gardet Brut Blancs de Blancs was accompanied with Scallop, cauliflower, fennel, parmesan, cous cous and tarragon.

Second course the Gardet Brut Premier Cru Blanc de Noirs was accompanied with Staal duck, kumquats, spice, marmalade amd mustard frills.

Main course the Charles Gardet Brut Premier Cru Rose 2008 was accompanied with Pork tenderloin, belly, eel, apple, sage, cider and crackling.

The cheese course of Pexommier cheese served with figs, crackerbreads, grissini and celery was served with a glass of Cuvee Charles Gardet 2004

The dessert of passionfruit delice with white chocolate, jelly, mango and lemon balm went perfectly with The Gardet Demi Sec.

A fantastic evening was had by all who attended, it was interesting listening to Christophe who described the techniques of the making of the champagne and how things have changed overthe years.

We hopefully will look forward to another night if  he visits again.
