17th Annual Champagne & Beaujolais Evening 2017

On Thursday 16th November we kicked off the Christmas party season with our 17th Annual Champagne and Beaujolais evening at the Balls Brothers bar in London. We host our annual event to thank our customers and partners for their support and loyalty with a night of drinks, food, socialising and roulette. It was a fantastic night with a turn out of over 150 clients, partners and friends.

Well done to Trevor Hopkinson (Clifford Chance) for winning at the roulette table and Neil Davison (Farrer) for winning the raffle. Both gentlemen went home with large bottles of Champagne to enjoy over the Christmas period.

We received so many thank you’s post event. It’s great you all enjoy the event and long may that continue. Here are some snaps from the night…..

 

Next years event will be on Thursday 15th November at the same venue so mark your diaries.

Some Beaujolais Nouveau facts

  • Beaujolais Nouveau Day is the third Thursday in November, the wine is released at 12:01am
  • The wine actually originated about a century ago as a cheap drink produced by locals to celebrate the end of the harvest season.
  • The idea of a race to Paris carrying the first bottles of the new vintage was developed. This attracted media attention, and by the 1970s, the race became a national event.
  • Beaujolais Nouveau is made from the Gamay grape. The grapes are harvested by hand using carbonic maceration, whole berry anaerobic fermentation. This emphasizes fruit flavors without extracting bitter tannin from the grape skins.
  • The method of production means that there is very little tannin, so the wine can be very fruity.
  • Beaujolais Nouveau is a purple-pink wine, bottled only 6-8 weeks after harvest.
