Will Travel For Champagne: A Night of Champagne With The “Nuit du Champagne” Tour

Nuit du Champ tour map

What do you do when you’re a staunch believer in, and advocate of, the philosophy of convincing more people that they should be drinking more champagne more often?

If you’re The Bubbleista you get wine education and certification; host champagne tastings; drink bubbly every week {strictly for learning purposes, of course}; write blog posts about champagne and sparkling wine; read books on the subject; and generally tell anyone who will listen for more than 2 seconds about the wonders of the magical, sparkling, divine elixir.

If you’re the brilliant brains behind Nuit du Champagne, however, you go even bigger and create your own effervescent experience entirely and solely dedicated to the love of French champagne, and then take that experience on the road with a five-city tour that provides a night of nirvana to champagne lovers everywhere.

Those French are just such thoughtful people!

A {Champagne} Night Out On The Town

Nuit du Champ hors and bubbly

Nuit du Champagne is the brainchild of corporate, public, & experiential events agency French Touch Events, in partnership with Champagne & Ardenne {tourism for the Champagne Region} and France’s Official Tourism Agency. The night will showcase the rich and intriguing history of the Champagne region and the infamous French “Grand Maisons de Champagne.”

The goal of Nuit du Chamapagne is “to reaffirm French Champagne as the only authentic Champagne” through hosting a series of festive, experiential, and exclusive events with an educational spin in cities across the US. What all of that means to you, my dear lovers of effervescence, is an exclusive night of exquisite, delicious, eventful fun!

The tour will kick-off with its first stop in the Nation’s Capital, and Nuit du Champagne graciously reached out to me with an invitation to the inaugural event so that I can get a sneak peek of what’s in store. Naturally it was absolutely a no-brainer for this #ChampagneObsessed committed bubbly enthusiast to respond quickly with “Mais, oui!”

Pour It Up, Pour it Up

Ruinart Blanc de Blanc (Instagram)The kick-off of this bubbly bonanza will be hosted at the luxurious Sofitel Hotel Lafayette Square in Washington DC. The champagne house that will be pouring at the event are:

  • Veuve Clicquot will offer Veuve Clicquot Yellow, Veuve Clicquot Rosé, Veuve Clicquot Vintage 2008, Veuve Clicquot 2008 Rosé and La Grande Dame Blanc
  • Moët & Chandon will present Moët & Chandon Impérial, Moët & Chandon Rosé Imperial, Moët & Chandon Vintage Blanc, Moët & Chandon Vintage Rosé and Moët & Chandon Ice Imperial
  • Krug will pour the Grande Cuvée
  • Dom Pérignon Blanc will be poured
  • Ruinart will offer their Blanc de Blanc {which is what I had at my wedding in Grand Cayman!}

Nuit du Champ List of Champagne Partners

The intriguing thing is that Nuit du Champagne has created 3 separate experiences for the launch event, with distinctive offerings at every level. Check them out to see which one tickles your fancy the most:

General Admission Individual Pass

Guests purchasing tickets at this level will get 2 glasses of the champagne from the brands of their choosing, along with dancing to the haute and hip musical stylings of Charlotte Balibar, also known as the French-born DJ Super Jaimie.

It’s the perfect Francophile’s dream.

Tickets are $70 per person and $120 per couple, making it a very lovely and unique date night option. Click here to get your tickets.

Nuit du Champ Individual Pass

VIP Lounge

I must confess that Nuit du Champagne will really kick things up a few notches when it comes to enchanting you with the VIP experience. Not only do guests get the champagne and music provided at the Individual Pass level, but they will also get exquisite culinary bites specifically designed to complement champagne, which includes chocolate truffles by French confectioner La Maison du Chocolat paired with Dom Pérignon.

And the perks are just getting started.

My personal belief is that champagne makes the drinker beautiful on the inside and outside, which is in perfect alignment with the philosophy of luxury beauty brand Caudalie. Caudalie uses vine and grape extracts from the vineyards of Bordeaux, Champagne and Burgundy in their products, and they will be at the event providing exquisite “vinotherapie” treatments {yep, “vino” as in wine!}.

Relaxing beauty treatments to go along with my glass of champagne? Well don’t mind if I do.

But wait, there’s more! Sturia Caviar Haute Couture will host a caviar and champagne pairing {one of my fave combinations} sensory experience workshop in the Lounge.

Can you say ooh la la?

Purchase your VIP Lounge single tickets for $110 or couples tickets for $200.

Attorney Champagne Lounge

In a city where there are arguably more attorneys per capita than any place in the entire world, Nuit du Champagne smartly chose to have a Champagne Lounge specifically for legal eagles.

As an attorney myself {I work on trademarks and branding with creative entrepreneurs} I must say that I was quite amused with this. After all, who better to strongly advocate and formulate arguments for the virtues of the “making of Champagne, its history, and the unique expertise of its winemakers” than a bunch of negotiating, position-defending, bubbly-loving barristers?

Well played, Nuit du Champagne, Well played.

The Attorney Lounge has reserved seating; bottle-service; bites; music; and an exclusive opportunity to network.

    One thing I have actually noticed is always that there are plenty of misguided beliefs regarding the banking institutions intentions any time talking about foreclosed. One fairy tale in particular is the bank needs to have your house. The financial institution wants your cash, not your home. They want the money they gave you having interest. Averting the bank will simply draw any foreclosed conclusion. Thanks for your publication.
