In the St-Germain area of Paris, your 1-hour tasting takes place at a Champagne boutique that offers a selection of 150 rare Champagnes, mostly from grand cru terroirs.
Sit down for your tasting in the 17th-century cellar, surrounded by wine bottles. As you taste the bubbly goodness, learn about the main regions that make Champagne, the three different Champagne grapes (pinot noir, chardonnay, pinot meunier), and the factors that go into this magical drink, including the terroir, the year, and the blend. Gain insight into why Champagne is not only the preferred French wine for an aperitif, but also an ideal selection for dinner, as it can be paired with dishes.
The Champagne is served with matured Comté (a hard cheese) and cured artisan ham (pata negra and serrano). All the wines you taste are available for purchase to take with you or have delivered, at the right temperature, of course.
