Looking for ideas for a Champagne / sparkling / Prosecco / Cava tasting. Let's call it three couples +/-.  The woman who suggested the tasting is an admitted Champagne fan.

Anyone have ideas on format / theme? I've kicked around several in my mind already, but nothing has stuck. She has a sophisticated palate, the other two couples enjoy wine.

I'll bring the Champagne and perhaps the sparkling, the other guests may be in charge of the rest. Thoughts? I should add that a subset would probably be ok as well. I almost like the idea of Champ compared to sparkling.

This is where my head is at currently. First flight of a pair of Special Club bottlings from same producer different vintages (unsure which producer I'll bring). Second flight a cross section of the Mumm sparkling that I tend to purchase when that mood hits me. It will give a glimpse into what good Champagne tastes like followed by every day accessible bubbles in BdB, Brut, Rose etc. which will hopefully open up some eyes on the differences. I may even pick up a bottle of Billecart Salmon rose for a more intimate tasting later that night / weekend...
