Tasting with a Twist: Eyes Wide Shut Brussels


What is bubbles + appetizers + blind tasting + philosophy in a private “salon”? Tasting with a Twist – Eyes Wide Shut!

It of course also was the last movie the brilliant Stanley Kubrick ever made, it proved to be the end of Nicole and Tom’s marriage, and Warner Bross had to digitally edit the movie to have it screened in Cinemas across the US. But if you think this sounds pretty gloomy, check again as the movie made 162 million dollars as well as attaining cult status 🙂

Soooo we are very excited to propose another tasting in Brussels, the first of hopefully a long partnership with the Champagnoteque – the esoteric temple of Champagne in Belgium!! To celebrate this new partnership we thought we would focus on the hedonistic characters of the wine and lose ourselves in pure indulgence.

With our special Guest, Cain Todd, philosopher and author of the great book “The Philosophy of Wine. A case of Truth, beauty and Intoxication” we will explore how our different senses allow us to experience sparkling wine in a different way.

We generally taste with our eyes and ears more than with our nose and tongue – but what happens if we cannot see any more? Do we still like what we always did or do we like different things?  Well this is what we hope to discover when we temporarily take our guests vision away by a blindfold and let them taste a few sparkling wines in the dark and in silence; we will then taste the same wines again knowing what they are and compare notes and taste, smell and texture.

We will taste 8 Champagnes from the different terroirs and we have picked wines which are rich silky and seductive. We do not want to give everything away, but we can tell you that we will be tasting the amazing Cuvée Louis from Champagne Tarlant, the Cuvée Royale Réserve from Champagne Philipponnat and an amazing 1995 (!!) Blanc de Blancs by Champagne Legras et Haas. The 5 other wines will be just as tantalizing but we are keeping them as a surprise for now!

Join us in this unusual discovery journey of your senses and see which Champagne really makes your heart skip a beat! We have opted for magnum bottles again as we believe the magic of the bubbles works soooo much better when poured from magnum!

Spaces are once again limited to 20, so book your ticket

In the mean time we hope you get geared up for this cult tasting!
