Wine Tasting in Paris sounds like a great idea; asking Lionel Michelin to conduct the event is an even better idea. So when Haritina & Andrei, long time friends of Dori & Giora invited them for an evening of private wine tasting, Dori & Giora enthusiastically accepted the invitation.
The custom tailored wine tasting took place in De Vinis Illustribus, located in the legendary site where the famous wine merchant Jean-Baptiste Besse, settled in the early 30’s, and received for more than 50 years wine enthusiasts from all over the world among which were Ernst Hemingway and Peter Ustinov.
Lionel Michelin guided Haritina, Andrei, Dori and Giora in the cellar while describing how he tracks down exceptional vintage wines, inspects them for authenticity and ensures they have been properly preserved so he can provide his customers with a truly memorable tasting.
And then it was time for the feast of gourmet food & wine!
Throughout the event, Lionel analyzed and commented on each wine served–region, characteristics and flavor profile.
The evening ended with sweet notes (chocolate & coffee macaroons anyone?) and happy smiles…. Thank you Lionel for such an educating & wonderful event!!! 🙂
