Bubblyotheque {Uptown Location}

Michael Knisley’s amazing champagne education courses are a joy to have here at St James. We will have Michael back and go through a selection of champagnes and their pairing potentials with cheeses and charcuteries. He will guide us through the wonderful world of bubbles and explore the effect the unique drink has on foods and compare and contrast to see the true ability of champagne as a partner at the dinner table. Michael’s knowledge on the subject is unrivaled and for anyone interested in champagne this will be a very special tasting with lots of information, this is definitely a class and will be more formal than our other tastings. For any of you who have missed Bubblyotheque in the past a bit of information in his own words: “Champagne is wine. (Seems obvious. Or does it?) It is also special. And fun. (Just like you.) It is undeniable: champagne is perfect for important events and special moments – just hearing the POP and seeing the bubbles can lift your spirits in an instant. But, when we save it for special occasions, or just drink it for the bubbles without considering the wine they are animating, we miss a great opportunity. The best winemakers in Champagne will tell you “Wine first, Bubbles after.” While that’s a factual statement, it is also part of the philosophy that underlies a veritable Golden Age for the appellation. The region is full of a new generation of vignerons who are thoughtful, dedicated, and tirelessly finding the way forward in a time of climate change, evolving tastes, and demand for wines that clearly show their terroir or sense of place. Tonight, we want you to a) eat and drink well, b) have fun, and c) begin to think of how the wines of Champagne demonstrate an intriguing range of
style and complexity. Not only that, there are many that cost far less than mass-produced bottles on the shelves of the Piggly Wiggly and which are approximately a bazillion times more delicious. You just have to understand them as wines first, realize that big name is not (always) equal to best wine, and taste, taste, taste. Oh, and have knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides to show you the way. And that’s where the Bubblyotheque comes in.”
Michael’s wine choices are always amazing with the cheese and charcuterie we have prepared, and of course the wonderful bread baked by Bellegarde Bakery. This is not a night for Champange lovers to miss. $55
