Wine Tastings

Recommended Posts

La Dernière Goûte, a beautiful little wine shop in the 6th, has started their tasting series again where they invite two wine makers to give a tasting. It takes place every Saturday from 11h00-13:30 and again from 16:00 to 19:00. It’s a fun way to sample some really great wine and meet the wine maker.

Here is the next two weeks schedule:

October 29 Château Ste Anne (Bandol)

Domaine les Aurelles (Coteaux du Languedoc)

November 5 Domaine la Tour Vielle (Collioure, Banyuls)

Clos de l’Anhel (Corbières)

I will post the next two next week. They have winemakers scheduled until January.

I am trying to get a Saturday layover so I can go to one. I went to their Calvados tasting in April, it was great!

Are there any more this month?  I'd love to attend!

Yes, they are every Saturday until January I think. If you look in the events (which is up at the top of the forum) I have posted the entire schedule for November. I'll be adding December's events soon.

Tell them that I sent you :smile:

Phyllis,

Could you also post the January schedule when it becomes available?

Please let us know if you discover any notable wines.

Best regards,

Henry

If you just wander in and ask for a recommendation for any area, you will be lovingly received, rewarded with an honest opinion and most probably invited to try whatever wines they have open that day. A sweet address. :smile:

Henry,

So far they only have tasting scheduled through December 31. I'm sure I will stop by there at some point this weekend and will let you know if they are planning on continuing in January.

I just posted a few wine tastings for March in the events section but wanted to add that the Dernière Goûte will be having their free Saturday tastings with the wine maker again in March, but they didn't have their schedule ready yet as of Monday. As soon as I have it, I will post it.

Just a reminder about the tasting at Cave Augé on Saturday, April 29.

I went to the last one a few weeks ago which featured wines from Languedoc Roussillon and it was amazing. There were about 15 different wine makers present, each serving several wines. This time it's wine makers from the Loire.

More details here

I wanted to try the tasting at La Dernière Goûte this weekend, but from something I read on the internet just now, it looks like they don't do it in January/Feb? Any other suggestions on similar weekend afternoon tastings?

Thanks!

The Dernière Goûte still has an informal tasting on Saturdays but not with the winemaker. The next scheduled tasting with a wine maker will be (I just called)

March 10 Domaine Gonon (SAINT-JOSEPH)

Caves du Panthéon in the 5th has informal tastings on Saturdays as well and I am sure there are others.

Lavinia had public tastings on Fridays and Saturdays--as opposed to the courses they offer--but I just checked their site and don't see anything listed. I will give them a call too and if they still offer them will add them to this list.

Thanks, Felice! But, don't go to the trouble of calling about on my account. It was just that Pierre45's post reminded me that I had wanted to try one of the Saturday wine tastings, so I'm going to try and get over there this Saturday or next for the informal tasting the Dernière Goûte.

I was just looking at Legrand's site and it seems that they now have free tastings on Saturdays, although not all. The next one is

Feb 24 Domaine Feuduccio (Italie, Abruzzes)

The March list isn't available yet.

I went to the Rhone Valley tasting today at the Cave Augé and if you haven’t ever been to one of their tastings, I would really recommend going. There were 20 wine makers there today from the Rhone, all natural wine makers as far as I know --Dard et Ribo, Thierry Allemand, Domaine Gramenon, Marcoux and others that I am not that familiar with. The whole event takes place just outside the shop, with the wine makers there serving several of their wines on big oak barrels. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to taste numerous wines from one wine maker.

Yes, they had the Cornas Chaillots 2004, Cornas Reynards 2004 and Cornas sans SO2 2004 from Thierry Allemand.

They also had several Cornas from Pierre Clape.

The next event will be the Loire on June 2.

Sigh...

I wish I was in Paris right now!

Are there any websites that offer listings/schedules of wine tastings in Paris? There's a great site named LocalWineEvents.com in the US that shows, as its name suggests, all the region wine tastings and dinners.

I'll be in Paris from the 3rd to the 8th of July and am looking forward to tastings and fine dinners while there.

Cheers! :cool:

Not that I know of and I am fairly sure this is the last tasting for Augé this year.

La Derniere Goute has tastings with the winemaker every Saturday and Legrand and Lavinia have weekly events as well. Unfortunately things might start to slow down in July. I will try to post some more wine events in the next week or so....

I’m sorry to make you even more jealous but it really was a great event. The weather was perfect and the atmosphere very laid back and fun. Where else could you find 17 artisanal wine makers happily talking about their wines and letting you taste at least 4-5 different wines—all for free.

Here’s Hervé Villemade discussing his Cheverny acacias 2005

I also recognized many people from Paris’s food community, including Yves Camdeborde, Hugo Desnoyer, and various people from wine bars/shops around town.

      There are two local grocery stores here who I'd like to try to sell chocolate to but they have policies forbidding GMO soy,  Soy lecithin is allowed only if organic or certified non-GMO. 
       
      I use a lot of Felchlin, some Valrhona, a little Cacao Barry. The only mention of GMOs I've found from Felchlin is this note in a brochure: GMO absence:  Felchlin fulfills current legislative requirements regarding GMO absence.  All Felchlin products comply with the Swiss Regulation and the European Council Regulation related to genetically modified organisms in food and feed.
       
      Does anybody know what those requirements are?  Is anything European going to be GMO-free?  Or labeled above some %?

      Has anyone come across a digital version of Practical Professional Cookery (revised 3rd edition) H.L. Cracknell & R.J. Kaufmann.
      I am using this as the textbook for my culinary arts students and a digital version would come in very handy for creating notes and handouts.

      I dont believe that any English translation of Carêmes works exist. An incomplete version was published in 1842 (I think) but even the that version seems lackluster for the few recipes it does cover. I think it's time the world looks to its past, but I don't speak great French and it's a huge task to undertake. I hopefully plan on publishing this work and anyone who helps me will get a very fair cut, and if we decide not to publish it, I'll put it out on the internet for free. I'm working in Google docs so we can collaborate. I'm first cataloging the index to cross reference the pre-existing incomplete English version to give us a reference of what yet needs to be done, and from there we will go down the list of recipies and Translate them one by one. Simple google translate goes only so far, as it is 1700s French culinary terms and phrases being used. I'd like to preserve as much of Carêmes beautiful and flowery language as possible. Who's with me?

      I have seen referenced in several places on the internet, including Wikipedia, a stat about escoffier recommending 40 minutes for scrambled eggs in a Bain Marie. I cant find where this number is from. On Wikipedia it refers to the book I currently own, the "Escoffier le guide culinaire" with forward by Heston Blumenthal by h. L. Cracknell...specificly page 157 for the 40 minute cooking time of scrambled eggs but it's not in my book on that page! Even tho there is the recipe for scrambled eggs on that page... I've seen the 1903 first edition online.. And it's not in there either.... Where is this number from?? Id like to know in case there is some even more complete book or something out there that I'm missing. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
