Paris, France — It is a remarkable world of tastes and aromas that emerges in Paris at the immensely elegant Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild on May 7th. No less than 70 champagne makers come together for the Champagne Tasting organized by the French magazine and news website Terre de Vins and attended by in-the-know well-heeled Parisians. The ambiance is sparklingly chic, the tasting glasses of the finest quality and the ambiance quietly festive. The leading houses are on hand with two prestige master classes being conducted by Veuve Clicquot and Ruinart. The Veuve Clicquot class will feature the house’s Grande Dame champagne and explain the importance of the Pinot Noir grape variety, one of the major three grape varieties of the Champagne region and will be held from 2pm until 2:45pm. The Ruinart master class will revolve around the Chardonnay grape variety of the region and the art of using it in champagne making. The session is being held from 3:30pm until 4:15pm.

The event offers the occasion to discover prestigious, world renowned champagne houses but as well, the smaller, confidential houses of Champagne country and a host of cooperatives.
