Unlike most of my compatriots, I don’t drink wine. However, I enjoy very much smelling and tasting wine and trying to analyze its different flavours: fruit, flower, herbs, cream, bread, mushroom, butter, vanilla, nuttiness, coffee or tobacco flavors among others… It seams to be indeed a national sport!
These addresses are my husband’s favorite:
- La grande épicerie de Paris : probably one of the best “cave” (cellar) of the world – 38 Rue de Sèvres, 75007 Paris
- La Fontaine aux vins – a small wine shop with really good wines – 107 Rue Mouffetard, 75005 Paris
