The winegrowers of our competition
Le Parisien tasted the production of eight estates labeled protected geographical indication (PGI) in Ile-de-France in partnership with the Revue du vin de France. Our jury, composed of professionals and two readers of our newspaper, tested fourteen bottles (8 white, 6 red), a few days ago at the Café des ministries in Paris. While waiting to discover the results on October 7 and during the show La table des bons vivants on Europe 1, here are the stories of the winegrowers participating in our contest.
- White and red at Sausset Park
- The vine lives again on the slopes of Grand Morin
- On the plain of Versailles, the only professional field
- In Chelles, the craftsman of the hillsides of Montguichet
- Suresnes, from tradition to upmarket (to be released on Tuesday, October 3)
- A landscaper winemaker in Melz-sur-Seine (to be published on Wednesday 4 October)
- Le blanc d'Épinay-sur-Seine, une histoire millénaire (to be published on Thursday 5 October)
- Chardonnay is king in Saint-Fargeau-Ponthierry (to be released Friday, October 6)
The clusters of Pinot Noir, well stocked, blacken the greenish landscape drawn by the vines and their foliage on the heights of Chelles (Seine-et-Marne). In the Middle Ages, the vineyard located on these "powerful" lands, rich in nutrients, offered the locals a wine of good quality. Wedged between the city and the border with Seine-Saint-Denis, marked by a wood, the slopes of Montguichet come back to life thanks to Pierric Petit.
