Morphée World Events
On the 26th of November, a special edition of Gem Talks on Diamonds was held - heightened with the Champagne On The Rocks experience!
Gemologist and designer of Morphée Joaillerie, Pamela Hastry,welcomed 20 guests at her boutique - Place du Grand Sablon.
The evening started with a tasting of the Boërl & Kroff Champagne B - vintage 2012, disgorged in March 2019. The juice comes exclusively from the first press. The base grape has flowed naturally thanks to gravity, with no pumping. They specially value this technique for the elaboration of their Champagnes. It allows to use very low quantities of sulfites (three times under standard vinification). This very «natural» vinification and the rare quality oak casks they use for part of the wines gives to our pinots a very beautiful copper-coloured aspect, close to last century's tradition.
The Champagne was served on the Rocks.
However when Pamela says Rocks… what she means are diamond rocks! Each Champagne glass contained a diamond, but only one was real! Together, the guests has to discover who was the lucky winner who keeps the real diamond! Following this, Pamela counted the tales and legends behind the history of diamonds.
