French Bubbles and Cheeses
YES !!! Champagne and cheese is a CLASSIC but nonetheless MAGIC combination for lovers of artisanal and unique French products. On one side, fine quality, limited production grower champagnes with personality and heritage. On the other side : artisanal cheeses from soft creamy to the beautiful hard cheeses aged in the mountains.
This tasting includes a visit at the local cheese store, 3 champagnes and 5 cheeses. Then, Geraldine will welcome you at her apartment in the 16th arrondissement. After exploring the art of making champagne and the different styles of champagne, you will sample a Brut, an Extra Brut and a vintage champagne and pair them with various creamy and hard cheeses. Enjoy this fantastic experience of the senses!
