Estate Bottled Champagne tasting with Sophie Couvreur

On Wednesday, April 18th at 7pm, please join me in welcoming Sophie Couvreur of Champagne et Villages to the Wine School at l’Alliance Française for a tasting of twelve estate-bottled Champagnes from her portfolio of grower-producers at Champagne et Villages.

Champagne et Villages was created by Paul and Françoise Couvreur in 1998 and is now run by their daughter Sophie. Their business is dedicated to the promotion of boutique grower champagnes. Drawing on Paul’s extensive experience with over 20 years running and marketing major champagne houses, together they have selected a range of quality driven, passionate and individual champagne brands that mirror their own philosophy of quality and commitment. The family has established fantastic relationships with their grower producers  – a testament to their desire to understand the family, their philosophy and practices as much as their wines.
