Wine culture will be explored in a friendly and inclusive atmosphere at the Grand Tasting 2014. This is your chance to discover the most prestigious wineries and their products at the Carrousel du Louvre from November 28th to 29th. At the Hotel de la Herse d'Or we heartily recommend this unique showcase for red, white, champagne, and rosé wines from all over France and beyond.
A fun and informal Wine Tasting Show in Paris
Le Grand Tasting was launched in 2006 by the highly respected wine critics and writers Michael Bettane and Thierry Desseauve. The show has become an annual event, attracting wine enthusiasts from around the globe. The participants are selected by Bettane and Desseauve and include talented young winemakers alongside those of international repute. As well as the opportunity to sample some superb wines you can attend the Master Class, where you can take advantage of the guidance and experience of experts such as winemakers, cellar masters, gourmets and the most noted of enthusiasts.
At this pleasantly relaxed and informal event you can discover the finest pairings of food and wine, courtesy of the Atelier Gourmets, and get a special perspective and a better understanding of the unique relationship between the land and its produce in the Ecole des Terroirs. Terroir refers to the special conditions of each grape growing area, such as weather, geology and soil. Each has a bearing on the fruit’s development and a knowledge of this will serve to deepen your appreciation of the end product. All in all it’s a chance to develop your taste that should not be missed.
