Champagne Salon is described by Peter Liem as a “jewel of a house… unique in Champagne in that it has always only produced a single wine, made from a single village, grape variety and vintage,” while sister house Delamotte has been producing renowned wines from the Côte des Blancs since the 18th century. This dinner highlights Le Mesnil Chardonnay at some of its most pure and dazzling heights. Didier Depond, director of both Salon and Delamotte, will be in attendance to present some of these sister houses’ greatest vintages, almost entirely from magnum, including the ultra-rare Salon 1971. The wines will be paired with a tasting menu prepared by Chef Abram Bissell - recently awarded a second Michelin star - in the The Modern’s beautiful dining room overlooking The Museum of Modern Art’s sculpture garden.

Daniel Johnnes, La Fête du Champagne co-founder, will lead a panel of passionate sommeliers to discuss the role of Champagne in their respective wine programs and offer insights into pairings and service. Wine Directors Patrick Cappiello of Rebelle and Pearl & Ash, David Gordon of Myriad Restaurant Group, Pascaline Lepeltier of Rouge Tomate Chelsea, and Thomas Pastuszak of the NoMad Hotel will each choose one Champagne to pair with a tasting portion of a dish prepared by Chef Andy Bennett of Rouge Tomate.
