The Bubbly Lovers Guide: Champagne Tasting at Bosta Kitchen Houston

IMG_3399Houston is my hometown {represent!} and it has been gaining quite a bit of notoriety in the last few years for being a culinary mecca. As the country’s soon-to-be 3rd-largest city, Houston’s food scene has been creative, diverse, and deliciously fantastic for along time, and it seems that the rest of the country is finally catching on to what we natives already knew.

Not only are their exquisite restaurants in H-town, but their have also been an increasing number of amazing places to sip champagne as well! The city has lagged behind New York city, San Francisco, Chicago, and even Austin, Texas when it comes to places focused on effervescent sipping, but the times they are a changin’ much to my champagne-loving heart’s delight.

I had the opportunity of checking out one of these new champagne-centric places when I attended a champagne tasting for the first time at Bosta in June. It was an intimate, luxury tasting experience {only 20 tickets were allotted to be sold} with high-end Marquee Champagne Houses Ruinart and Krug which included gourmet small plates that paired perfectly with the champagne.

One of the other things that let’s you know Bosta is serious about champagne and sparkling is wine is the number, variety and quality of bubbles offered by the glass. You won’t find a measly 2 or 3 options here–Bosta has 10. It’s one of the few places you can get a taste of luxe bubbly like Dom Perignon and Cristal without having to buy the entire bottle.

That is, if you can summon the willpower to only drink one glass as opposed to the entire bottle.

But let’s us carry on, shall we?

The tasting list was comprised of

  • Ruinart Blanc de Blancs
  • Ruinart Rosé
  • Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2004
  • Krug Grand Cuvee
  • Krug Rosé

The food parings included a cheese board {Manchego, Brie, cheddar, Dijon mustard, and fruit preserves} and Chef’s small plate of spicy, succulent Harissa shrimp sauteed with mint and coriander. Champagne expert  {my kinda girl, yes?} Janie Higgins was on hand to give tasting notes and the interesting history behind how the wines were made.

I loved how the event was refined but still fun relaxed, and casual–there was no stuffy pretense, just a focus on creating an enjoyable, high-level experience. In fact, that’s the perfect summation of exactly what the overall vibe itself is like at Bosta.

If you’re sad about missing this event you totally should be {wink}, but you have been given a reprieve! The restaurant is hosting another tasting this Friday featuring

  • Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2004
  • Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2006
  • Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2008
  • Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2003
  • Dom Pérignon Vintage 2004

Tickets can be purchased here, but don’t wait because Bosta’s tastings are exclusive events with a limited number of tickets.

Until next time, cheers, bubbly lovers!

    I love the manner you conferred this. You actually have an honest grasp on what’s required to reach digitally selling alittle business. the matter is that almost all individuals recently became familiar with instant gratification, thus expect instant results from their selling efforts. the fact is, that to succeed with any style of selling, you’ve got to be consistent, deliberate and most of all, terribly patient.

    Birthday needs can be in the type of a solitary line, an recognized estimate, or a completely developed poem or essay. The manner in which the birthday wish is delivered will rely on the relationship to the receiver.

    Thanks for your posting. One other thing is always that individual states in the United states of america have their very own laws that affect homeowners, which makes it very, very hard for the our lawmakers to come up with the latest set of guidelines concerning foreclosed on home owners. The problem is that a state has own legal guidelines which may have interaction in an undesirable manner in terms of foreclosure insurance policies.
