The Champagne Concept
22a Oxford Street, Harrogate, Yorkshire, HG1 1PU
Produce: Artisan Boutique Champagne
The Champagne Concept is truly unique………..All of the Champagnes have been carefully chosen and sourced directly from boutique producers.
For a truly great and inspirational idea, MasterChef Gift Card would like to introduce you to the Champagne Concept.
Gemma and Laurence (owners of The Champagne Concept) are passionate about raising the profile of the smaller and lesser-known champagne houses from around the Champagne region, which, despite being one of the smallest wine areas in the world, actually makes in excess of 300 million bottles annually.
The regions may be small in size but there are massive differences in climate and soil, where various grapes find better places to grow, and there are over 4000 producers, all making their own champagne with their own special and subtle difference.
Despite this huge diversity one may be surprised to learn there are only about 40 champagnes that are readily available around the UK and they tend to be the larger better known producers who tend to mix their grapes. It is a sad fact that the UK is missing out on the unique flavours of so many great artisan Champagnes and as a nation we have in fact only just dipped our little toes into the delightful fizz.
The Champagne Concept Tasting Bar - Laurence and Gemma believe the best way to learn about boutique Champagne is to taste it! Their venue is situated in the quaint spa town of Harrogate in North Yorkshire and comprises a unique Champagne tasting bar and bottle shop that offers informal Champagne tastings all day, everyday.
Their inviting tasting bar is the perfect place to discover different Champagnes. Whether you are a Champagne enthusiast or a novice fizz lover they will be delighted to talk you through one of their informal tastings and find some Champagnes you can't help but LOVE!
There's a genuine excitement and thrill that comes from finding a treasure amongst the lesser-known champagne brands and this is your opportunity to find out whether you are a "Blanc de Blancs" or "Blanc de Noirs" fan, perhaps a Rosé is your preference, maybe oak aged is your thing or a super dry Champagne?
After all….there is only one way to find out!
