Wine Quest - First stop : Paris !
On our never-ending quest to find new gems for you guys, we stopped by Paris for the VinExpo / Wine Paris. And here’s our take on it:
The first thing you notice at VinExpo is, the giant size of the place. Of course, we knew it will be a big deal but VinExpo definitely exceeded our expectations. It was impossible to see everything in three days; however, we tried our best to taste wines we did not know about, discover new talents, go in different directions …. Basically, we tried to have fun and do what we do best: appreciate wine.
So, let’s get started!
We decided to go first for the Rhône’s domains on our first day, then to the well- known Bourgogne and the last day we just went with the flow, because wine not?
In the Rhône’s valley, we tasted about twenty different domains and we made some pretty nice discoveries such as “Domaine des Ondines”, “La Cave de François” or the “Domaine du Chêne”. (We will make sure to share them in detail in a future post with you).
We had a good time with the sisters from l’Abbaye de la Fidélité. The sisters Benedictines have been very courageous to undertake the winemaking “business” on their own in their seven hectares of wineries.
After few dull tastings at the Burgundy coner, we finally came to an exciting discovery: the “Domaine Gaviguet” and the “Clos du Moulin aux Moines”. Two very interesting domains that offer a nice range of wines at reasonable prices.
Finally, for our last visit, we found some hidden treasures that we want to share with you: Le Château. Fontvert in Luberon, Le Châteay. De la Robine in AOP Grignan-les-Adhémar and La Villa Tempora en AOP Languedoc Pézenas.
We know those may be many names for you to remember, do not worry! Some of our best findings will be soon on our website, and then you could enjoy the pleasure of Vineexpo without living your house.
You just chill and bottle up!
