Anthony Rose: When perfumer Lyn Harris smelled the Blanc de Blancs, she found it 'fresh and lemony, then floral'

They're two of the best noses in the business, both devoted to creating luxury products, although with very different objectives. Fred Panaiotis is the winemaker at Ruinart Champagne, the region's oldest champagne house founded in 1729. Lyn Harris is the perfumer at Miller Harris, which is 10 years old next year. When Fred invited Lyn to visit Ruinart's cellars in Reims, she had two small problems to overcome: an aversion to bubbly and nervousness as to whether she'd "get" the wine- tasting or not. She was up for the challenge, though.
