Dr. Champagne, the Champagne Surgeon and the Greek Champagne and I were fortunate enough to attend an exclusive champagne tasting dinner at Jonathans Restaurant in Oakville, Ontario (

We had the opportunity to try some exceptional champagne from the GH Martel & Co Champagne house from Epernay, France (

To add to the wonderful evening, we had the opportunity to enjoy the company of the charming and gracious Jean-Remy Rapeneau, the youngest son of the fourth generation Rapeneau family who give the GH Martel family of champagnes their personality.

The champagnes (and wine) we experienced included:
*Champagne Charles de Cazanove Comte de Noiron “Coeur de Cuvee” Brut
*Charles de Cazanove Brut Rose
*Paul Louis Martin Bouzy Rouge, Grand Cru 2007
*Chateau Clerc-Milon, 5eme Cru Classe 1995, Pauillac
*Champagne Charles de Cazanove Demi Sec

It was an exceptional evening of great champagnes paired with an outstanding gourmet meal from the fine team at Jonathans.

The night would not have been complete without the knowledge and information shared by Jean-Remy Rapeneau (aka the IMM) our most gracious and generous host.
