Wrote an article on my website about a cheese and charcuterie feast we had two weeks ago and how I paired it with French Champagne and a Sauterne . If you are interested the following is a link to the post called, "Time for Pâté, Cheese, and Wine!" I also have a few other past posts on the site regarding French wines. Hope you enjoy. Makes me want to go out and do this all over again real soon!

Hi all,

If someone come in Burgundy, you can contact me. Maybe I can help you for some informations about Beaune or tasting. Even if the Burgundian producers are not really open for the tasting (the good producers) I hope to help you to open the doors (some).

Carsten,
Here's my list after a number of years in Paris. I am sure there are a whole bunch more but these came from walking about, and using Patricia Wells' writings about wine in Paris as well.

It's taken me about 14 years of living in France to experience the full range of French wines, from the obscure grapes varieties such as Ugni-Blanc in the Côtes de Gascogne all the way up the heavenly champagnes of Dom Ruinart.
Quite frankly, I still have a long way to go...so I think I'll hang around here in France for the rest of my life !

If you plan on traveling through Paris and would like to make as many discoveries as possible without overdoing the quantity, my recommendation would be to try one of the wine bars. I'm yet to make a list of the best one? Has anybody else got one?

Another recommendation would be to save as much as possible on accommodations by trying out the new concept www.parisharing.com, which will allow you to have bottles and glasses ready for you when you arrive in your authentic furnished apartment.
