Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris Opens Doors to Its Most Precious Treasure: The Wine Cellar

  
February 4, 2014,
Paris, France

 

 

Four Seasons Hotel George V is launching a new experience, inviting guests to an exceptional wine tasting with Eric Beaumard in its very own Wine Cellar.

Eric Beaumard, Director of Le Cinq restaurant and silver medal winner of the World's Best Sommelier championship in 1998, will host Hotel guests in the George V Wine Cellar once a month, welcoming them for a unique opportunity to taste a range of wines expertly selected with his utmost care.

Made up of more than 50,000 bottles, the Wine Cellar contains real vintage treasures. More than 2,200 types of both French and international wines are stored there at ideal temperature and in perfect humidity conditions.  Arranged by order of region, upon visiting the Wine Cellar guests will really feel as if they are traveling through the most beautiful parts of the world: Italy, California, Argentina, South Africa, Hungary, Chile, and of course France, with great vintage wines from Bordeaux and Bourgogne. Guests will also discover other hidden treasures from the Rhone Valley, the Languedoc Roussillon region and further still, some New World wines. 

By candlelight, Eric Beaumard will give an expert commentary on the tastes behind three different wines: red, white and Champagne.

Lasting for about an hour, this wine tasting experience will be accompanied by gougère puff pastries, charcuterie and cheese. The wine tasting will take place in the intimacy of the Wine Cellar, located 14 metres (46 feet) underground in a former stone quarry whose very own stones served in part to build the Arc de Triomphe. It is a truly unique moment to enjoy with the most passionate and captivating of sommeliers.

Eric Beaumard has been in charge of the Wine Cellar and Le Cinq restaurant since the reopening of Four Seasons Hotel George V in 1999.  “It is a unique and privileged way to discover one of the most beautiful wine cellars of Paris while exploring wines from the French vineyards, perhaps unknown to wine amateurs.”

This new experience will take place once a month from 6:00 to 7:00 pm, and is offered on a complimentary basis to guests of the hotel and of Le Cinq exclusively.

Upcoming dates for tasting events in the Wine Cellar:

  • Friday, February 7, 2014
  • Wednesday, March 5, 2014
  • Wednesday, May 7, 2014
