A special gourmet food and wine experience at the Grande Epicerie de Paris

Thursday November 27, 2014


Vignerons IAB 27 Novembre 2014 Grande Epicerie de Paris

The wine producers representing the In a Bottle club


Act I – featuring the presentation and tasting of 2012 vintage wines made by members of the In a Bottle club for twenty or so journalists who attended the event.


Act II – ‘land/sea’ food pairings with wines from the club flighted by style and appetizers by the chef Emilien Windels with Sturia caviar.

“Caviar is tricky to cook with and pairing it with young red wines from the club, with their tannins, volume and aroma, was a real challenge. We had to work with top quality ingredients and select the specific style of caviar from Sturia’s range that would match the wines’ personalities and balance flavours based on the these three variable components,” explains chef Emilien Windels.


Act III – this time the action took place at the table and focused on the fish that produces the roe. The same level of creativity was maintained throughout the lunch.

Vintage 2012 wines made by In a Bottle club members coupled with the creativeness of the chef and array of origins for the caviar enabled the experience to run the gamut in terms of “textures, structures, aromas and flavours” and revealed how successful pairings between young red wines and Sturia caviar could be.
