“This is a celebration of French luxury,” said René Furterer product manager Aubrey Scott who chatted with me after the event. “We wanted to introduce these new products in the luxurious setting they deserve.”

The tasting, held at the renowned Artisanal Cheese Center in New York City, was the ultimate indulgence. The beautiful tables featured 4 glasses of Fine French Champagne, and a selection of 7 special fine French cheeses from a Petite Mothais cheese made from goat’s milk to a Comté made from cow’s milk. Led by Champagne expert Cathleen Burke Visscher and Artisanal Cheese Center maître fromager Max McCalman, the class covered details such as the creation and bottling of Champagne, the difference between a Blanc de Blanc non-vintage and a Brut vintage, what gave each cheese its distinctive flavor and the fine points of Champagne and cheese pairings. At the heart of each table were the three products serving as center pieces.

Although I left a little “buzzed” from the champagne, I just had to check out the products. It was a beautiful and luxurious experience as I cleansed and conditioned my hair. Launching in November, 2011, these products are something for every salon professional to look forward to!
