Wednesday, 6 May, 2020

6:30pm – 9:30pm

APOTECA, 118 Hindley Street, Adelaide

Cristal is unlike any other champagne; it is the child of chalk. A wine of uninterrupted purity and beguiling finesse.

Join us for an unforgettable evening featuring Louis Roederer’s latest and finest champagnes, including its famed Cristal, with Adelaide’s leading sommelier, Liinaa Berry (2KW + Leigh Street Wine Room) and Editor of VINE & BUBBLE Magazine, Sara Underdown. This is a special opportunity to experience the newly released Cristal 2012 alongside Louis Roederer’s other premium champagnes, including their third collaboration with Paris designer, Philippe Starck.

For the first time in Adelaide, we’re pleased to showcase the limited release Brut Nature duo: Blanc 2012 and Rosé 2012, accompanied by expert commentary.

Champagnes will be paired with some of South Australia’s finest produce, drawing on the culinary expertise of APOTECA.
