from Languedoc-Roussillon, Mon, Mar 18 at 7pm
There is no doubt that France is synonymous with the world’s preeminent wines. And there’s no better place to swirl, smell, taste, and learn about them than at FIAF.
Now in its seventh year, FIAF’s Wine Tour de France offers exceptional tastings led by some of New York’s leading sommeliers and wine experts, perfect for oenophiles of all levels. This year, Eric Asimov, Chief Wine Critic at The New York Times, kicks off the series with a survey of wines from all over France. Delve deeper into classics from Bordeaux, one of France’s most renowned wine regions, in the second tasting, and discover new flavors of Languedoc-Roussillon in the third.
Each tasting presents a flight of six wines, paired with delicious breads from Maison Kayser, the newly-opened boulangerie of the Upper East Side (1294 Third Avenue at 74th Street), a selection of charcuterie from d’Artagnan, a leading purveyor of natural and organic meats to four-star chefs and home gourmets, and a selection of cheeses, with well-known brands like Président for creamy soft-ripened cheeses and Société for the famous Roquefort.
