We were delighted to be invited to one of his wine tasting sessions on the Batostar boat which is moored along the Seine river close to the Hôtel de Ville. In a two hour session you will get to taste six different wines - we had a champagne, two white wines and three red wines - from different regions in France. Thierry gave a fascinating introduction to wine in France, from the production processes involved - such as how long the grape skins are kept in the juice and that champage bottles are turned every day - to the various wine producing regions in France - did you know that Burgundy wine can only use 100% of one type of grape, no blends allowed.
The tasting of the wine was also very well handled, with generous measures and a good explanation of what to consider, whether its the "legs", "robe" or one of eleven different families of aromas. All this in a friendly atmosphere overlooking the heart of Paris. You will come away with a genuine appreciation of French wine and some great information to share with friends and family.
We would be happy to recommend wine tasting in Paris with Thierry and we are delighted to announce that he has agreed to give Help Me In Paris clients a special treat for every booking. Get in touch for more details.
