When back vintages of the Champagne you exclusively import are compared to Krug Blanc de Blanc and Salon les Mesnil, you cannot help being exceptionally proud.
It’s even more exciting when bottles of the stunning 1982 Bonnaire and 1996 Paul Clouet are both making their way to London, along with winemaker Jean-Emmanuel Bonnaire on the 25th of October for a dinner and tasting!
With Champagne’s finest palate, Richard Juhlin making the aforementioned comparisons and attesting to his ‘private cellar being full of bottles from Bonnaire’ and Allen Meadows saying he ‘would buy six or twelve bottles and drink then over the next five years’ when talking about Paul Clouet, you can probably see why we’re bubbling over with enthusiasm…
Terrible pun aside, we would like to invite you try all this tremendous Champagne, along with four courses of delicious fare at 28°-50° on the evening of Wednesday the 25th of October.

Review from a previous Champagne Dinner Guest:
The Clos & Cru Grand Cru Champagne Dinner was an absolutely fantastic evening. We tasted 7 beautiful champagnes with a delicious 3 course dinner designed to compliment the various champagnes. During the dinner, each champagne was introduced and the passion and dedication of the Clos & Cru team came across very clearly. I learnt a lot about the champagne making process and the information provided certainly wet my appetite for what was to come! All members of the team were engaging, bubbly and knowledgable and did a brilliant job of making the evening relaxed and enjoyable. The highlight for me was drinking the 1996 Grand Cru from the family’s collection – utterly delicious and like no other champagne I have tasted. 10/10!
