This sumptuous session led by Peter kicks off with an aperitif that will surprise and delight. From there, it’s fine wine aplenty from these two world-class producers (plus the odd nibble). First you will compare and contrast two top vintage champagnes, including a superb older vintage. Then it’s onto two classic vintage ports from the same year but made in very different styles. YUM!
