France is a great place to go wine tasting.
There are 3 simple rules: look, smell, taste!
At this stage the professional taster will spit the wine out, while the amateur taster (like myself) will swallow it.
You can book a French Wine Tasting in Paris through Viator. The cavern cellar of O Chateau is located nearby the Louvre. The setting is intimate, the class informative and fun for those with knowledge and novice alike. The sommeliers are passionate, personable, charming and have a great sense of humor. The wine is accompanied by cheese, a variety of breads and coldcuts. A must do. Viator offers other wine tasting tours in the Champagne region, from Bordeaux, Dijon, Avignon and Rheims. Santé!
