If you are in Shanghai on October 25th, indulge in a pairing dinner complete with an impressive line-up of luscious full-bodied champagnes. Egly-Ouriet is a rare breed among champagne producers as their focus is on making Pinot Noir-driven wines. This is a great occasion to taste a solid blanc de noir (100% Pinot Noir) next to an even rarer bottling extracted purely from the other lesser known black-skinned champagne grape, Pinot Meunier, in Egly-Ouriet’s Vignes de Vrigny label. All this takes place at T8, my choice spot in Shanghai for any wine event .
