The venue is the exhibition centre at the Carrousel du Louvre and the dates are November 28th and 29th for this wine buff’s heaven.

Le Grand Tasting is hosted by the leading French wine critics, Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve, the writers of the prestigious guide series Le Classement des Meilleurs Vins de France. There could be none better qualified for ensuring the continued high quality of the event. Bettane and Desseauve certify all wines before they are accepted for Le Grand Tasting, and they welcome both the legendary producers but also talented young winemakers who are as yet largely unknown, allowing for a voyage of discovery.

The Ateliers Gourmet demonstrate and explain the best pairings of food and wine, and the Ecole des Terroirs delves into the important roles of geography and climate in viticulture. Come and see why the reputation of Le Grand Tasting develops from year to year like a fine wine.
