Paris Wine Tasting

Join us for an English introduction to French wine. Your wine expert will guide you through the different varieties of whites and reds and their regions such as Burgundy, the Loire Valley, Bordeaux and the Cote du Rhone in a cellar close the Pompidou Center. Choosing a wine can be an intimidating experience if you don't know how to decode the labels. While many wine producers try to lure customers with elaborate illustrations, selecting wine goes beyond appearance.

With the help of a few basic rules and methodology, combined with your will and curiosity to explore the unknown, you can taste a myriad of little known French wines, from small appellations, from many different regions and sub-regions, rare grape varieties.

Learn how to gently swirl your wine to release it's flavors and aromas as well as examine the wine's color, tint and density. As you slowly sip the wine and allow it to roll over your palate, you will learn to identify the main components of taste, the importance of the grapes selected and the effect of aging.
