The Grand Tasting is one of the most important events in the wine world in recent years! Organized by Bettane+Desseauve, it is now available for a first spring edition.

The Spring Grand Tasting will be held at the Temple Floor on May 24 and 25, 2019.

Accessible to professionals and individuals alike, do not hesitate to push the doors of this gathering...

To take your places:

What will you find in this first edition?

First of all, the famous Price+PleasureThis is a prize for wines with an excellent price/quality ratio. A jury of consumers tasted under professional conditions cuvées at less than 18€ for still wines and less than 30€ for champagnes. As a result, gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded. New this year, the wish was to include more organic wines. Often slightly more expensive due to a greater number of constraints, 21 medals were awarded to organic wines for less than 9€! This is a good proof that pleasure and responsible consumption are compatible. And all the medal-winning wines will be available for tasting to our delight!

You can also enjoy a real Tour de France of wines. Indeed, all the vineyards are represented through the speakers, go around the wines while staying in Paris: a great idea!

Fans of rosés you are welcome! A closer look at the most beautiful rosé wines in IGP Pays d'Oc and AOC Languedoc. For those who are not yet convinced that rosé also has its gastronomic vintages, this will be an opportunity for you to discover and taste the best of this region with the winegrowers.

You can meet the Winegrowers of Tomorrowthe winners of the Winegrowers and Terroirs d'Avenir competitions will be present and ready to answer questions to help you better understand their approach. These winegrowers can tell you their story. The wine world is also changing and many winegrowers are choosing cleaner ways of growing in the desire to see their vineyards continue.

Finally, don't miss the bartender competition : The Coktails Hero, which brings together the best mixologists in Paris. Tests of technique, creativity and speed of execution will allow a prestigious jury to determine a winner!
