A FRENCH WINE TASTING IN A PRESTIGIOUS PARISIAN LOCATION

THE CONVENT “LES CORDELIERS”

 

The social event of the EHR2016 International Congress will take place right in the heart of Paris at "Les Cordeliers” campus.

Located in the "Quartier Latin" district, this old historical site was always dedicated to science and teaching. Built since 1234, the site was first dedicated to religious teaching during the Middle Age, and became one of the most famous think tanks during the French Revolution. This former convent “Les Cordeliers" hosts today the Medicine Faculty of the Pierre and Marie Curie University.

THE WINE TASTING: A « MASTER CLASS » BROUILLY OF CHÂTEAU DE LA CHAIZE

 

With our two speakers, Caroline de Roussy de Sales and Olivier Ravier, you will discover the wines from Château de La Chaize, all produced on an exceptional granitic terroir in the Brouilly appellation.

Set in the South of Burgundy, Château de La Chaize is the most famous castle and estate in Beaujolais, located in Odenas. The 99 ha large vineyard covers 8% of the whole Brouilly "Appellation", the largest of the Crus known for its most pleasant and elegant character.

Four different cuvees will be presented, tasted and commented:

  1. The Brouilly Château de La Chaize 2015: the ambassador of the estate
  2. The Cuvee "Vieilles Vignes" 2013: this gastronomy wine made from a selection of the older vineyards (50 years and over) is aged in Burgundy oak-barrels.
  3. The Réserve de La Marquise 2014:  this "vin de garde" comes from an even more specific selection of the oldest vineyards and is aged in new oak-barrels. It has a longer ageing potential, up to 10-15 years.
  4. The Rosé 2015 Château de La Chaize is the youngest sibling, also made from the Gamay grape: elegant, seductive, a huge success to be tasted all year-round.

A unique opportunity to discover a region, the Beaujolais, a grape variety, the Gamay, and a cru, Brouilly, through noble wines, exported all around the world.

The wine tasting will be accompanied by a gourmet cocktail dinner with typically French flavors.
