” THIS is the showcase that Champagne — the choice of dilettantes and serious drinkers alike — deserves: the inaugural Taste Champagne, organised by Australia’s leading writer on the subject, Tyson Stelzer. For one night in Sydney (September 1) and one night in Melbourne (September 8), Stelzer, author of The Champagne Guide, will present for tasting 127 of the latest cuvees from 52 Champagne houses, co-operatives and growers — in other words, the big brands such as Moet & Chandon and Veuve Clicquot alongside “indie” growers such as Egly-Ouriet and Agrapart.
