The Beaujolais Nouveau; the 2018 vintage is ready!
Thursday, November 15th, 2018 will see the arrival of the Beaujolais Nouveau in the capital. Take the opportunity to have a drink with family or friends. The first bottles of the 2018 cuvée imported directly from the Rhône are ready to be released to a wine-loving public. Available soon after the end of the harvest, this delicious nectar benefits from a process of ultra-fast maceration. The so-called ‘carbonic’ method gives this wine, which is derived mainly from the Gamay N grape variety, its fresh fruity flavour and low tannin presence. Don’t miss this festive celebration in which ham, sausage and other charcuterie accompany a young, frisky wine with a punchy taste. We invite you to enjoy it in one of the many ‘Bistrots Beaujolais’ in Paris, such as Les Vieilles Vignes, a brasserie bar located in the 7th arrondissement, not far from the hotel.
Salon des Vins; discover the myriad wines of France
From November 29th to December 2nd a trade fair takes place at the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre that promises to awaken all your senses. The 40th Salon des Vins des Vignerons Indépendants (Wine and Independent Winegrowers Fair) will bring together nearly 1000 winemakers from all over France, giving you the opportunity to taste the fruits of their talent. Over four days you will meet passionate professionals and key players in the industry who will tell you all about their stories, their approaches, their wines. It’s a wine lover’s paradise of discovery, variety and choice. That essential accessory, a tasting glass, will be offered at the entrance.
Grand Tasting; the best of French wine, region by region
