Just last weekend I was dressed in white from head to toe and appropriately sipping some Champagne Lanson Brut White Label NV at Washington’s second annual Diner en Blanc.
You can read more about DC’s 2015 Diner en Blanc here (and here and here and here.) If you missed Diner en Blanc or you just want to relive a part of this magical evening, the House of Lanson is coming to town and hosting two events in the District.
The first, more casual, is a tasting of the entire champagne house portfolio at one of my go-to wine shop Cork and Fork (always trust a wine shop owner whose grandfather ran the Champagne Veuve Clicquot vineyards) between 6-8PM on September 15 (Tickets $20).
The second is a wine pairing diner at 701 near the National Archives/Navy Memorial also on September 15 (starting at 7:30PM, $100 not including tax and gratuity). Executive Chef Benjamin Lambert will prepare a five-course feast while Enguerrand Baijot, the director of Champagne Lanson North America, will orchestrate pairings of Champagne Lanson, including Black Label Brut NV, Rose Label Brut, the White Label that was served at Diner en Blanc and a “Gold Label” Vintage Brut 2002. The Young Winos of DC have complete menu for you here and you can book your spot for dinner by calling the restaurant at 202-393-0701.
