Description

We designed our Grands Crus masterclass for people willing to treat themselves to an outstanding wine tasting experience. To take part in this, there is no need to be an expert. What matters is that you love wine.

The tasting starts at 5pm in our 17th century wine cellar right near the Louvre. We'll taste six different wines, coming from 6 different regions of France. We selected great wines for you: older vintages, grands crus, premiers crus, grands crus classes, wines that come from the nicest wineries in France.

With a unique and refreshing approach, our sommelier will take you through a variety of themes to build up and refine your wine knowledge. He will take you through the main wine regions of France, explain to you what it takes to make a truly great wine, guide you through the specificities of French terroirs, explain the hierarchy of French wines and give you names you should be looking for. The content of the class will be tailored to meet the expectations of the participants so that our sommelier teaches you exactly what you are interested in.

Our master class is both informative and fun. In just two hours, you will learn a lot as you taste fantastic French wines. Then at 19:00 or so, we'll let you go, intoxicated not by the wine, but by the pleasure of having tasted greatness!

All the wines you will taste are available for sale (plus many more too; just ask your sommelier).
