Delray Beach Wine and Seafood Festival Tattinger Champagne Seminar

In its third year, The Delray Beach Wine and Seafood Festival in partnership with Republic National Distributing Company present a series of  vintner education and food and wine pairing symposiums. In ancient Greece, a symposium was defined as a drinking party. “The Greek symposium was a key Hellenic social institution. It was a forum for men of good family to debate, plot, boast, or simply to revel with others.” - Wikipedia. In modern times, symposium has a more refined connotation; a gathering of specialists and experts on a particular topic discussing and delivering information on the said topic. There are eight vintner symposiums, and one chefs panel discussion at this years festival. Renowned wines from around the world will be presented, discussed, tasted, and paired with food from equally celebrated local chefs and their restaurants.

The Wines presented will be from Plumpjack Winery/Cade, Banfi Vintners, Cakebread Cellars, Tattinger Champagne, Silver Oak Cellars/Twomey, Joseph Drouhin, ZD Wines, and Chalk Hill Estate Winery.

Tattinger wines will be paired with a tasting menu from the Delray Beach Marriott. Click here to purchase tickets for any of the seminars.

Taittinger

Taittinger

Founded in 1734, the Taittinger Champagne house is based in Reims. The flagship wines of the house are the Comtes de Champagne (composed of 100%Chardonnay) and Comtes de Champagne Rosé (70% Pinot noir and 30% Chardonnay ).

Taittinger Brut Réserve is blend of Chardonnay (40%) and Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (60%) wines from over 35 different vineyards and vintages matured to perfection. This high proportion of Chardonnay, unique among fi ne non-vintage champagnes, and a minimum ageing of three years in the cellars, where it reaches the peak of aromatic maturity, make Taittinger Brut Réserve a delicately balanced champagne, known for its consistently excellent quality the world over. Taittinger considers it an honour to produce a Brut champagne every year without exception.

Taittinger Prestige Rosé immediately stands out for its intense, shimmering hue whose secret lies in the fact that it is a blend, which is more complex and costly to produce. A quantity of still red wine (15%) produced from the best Pinot Noirs from Montagne de Reims and Les Riceys is in fact added to the fi nal blend, to give this cuvée its unmistakable colour and vibrant intensity on the palate. The high proportion of Chardonnay (30%) that completes the blend brings the elegance and delicacy that underpin Taittinger’s signature style.”
