The George of Stamford is thrilled to be hosting The Taittinger Champagne Dinner - our magnificent Oak Room will be the backdrop to a flight of extremely elegant wines, including the exquisitely noble Comtes de Champagne all which have been thoughtfully matched with a simply delicious menu, a collaboration between Clovis Taittinger and Paul Reseigh, Chef Patron at The George.
Clovis is the son of Pierre-Emanuel Taittinger, President of Taittinger, the fourth and third generation respectively of this famous family owned and managed Champagne House. Clovis oversees the International Development and Marketing, accounting for about 75% of the worldwide sales. He has tirelessly and diligently travelled the world over the last 10 years and is very proud that Taittinger is now sold in over 150 countries. Obvioulsy inherited, he shares his family’s relentless passion for the business, with the common pursuit of ‘Excellence’. Clovis is renowned for saying ‘Champagne is absolutely the best way to say “I love you” in all languages’.
During the evening, Clovis will share his stories from the family’s vineyards throughout the Champagne region and his worldwide travels, whilst introducing a special cuvée with each course.
