Last Tuesday, I was invited to a wine tasting workshop at Maison Pirard, in Genappe.
It is the second time I have the the chance to attend this type of event as a blogger, and I very much enjoyed it.

We were warmly welcomed by Simon Pirard, who guided us through the wine tasting. He represents the 3rd generation of Maison Pirard and brings his enthusiasm and his passion for wine to the family business.

As cellar masters since 3 generations (more than 70 years of tradition), the Pirard family values and promotes the work of craftsmen winemakers, whose wines they sell along with their house bottles. Maison Pirard offers a catalog of more than 500 crus from France and around the world, with free delivery in Belgium. Their wines can be ordered online here.

If you are interested in knowing more about wine, they also organise wine tasting classes which take place in the evenning at “L’Atelier de la Maison Pirard”. 5 different courses are available, covering different topics and levels of knowledge. Their aim is to help you to put words to your sensations, and define your personal taste.

During the wine tasting, I had the pleasure to taste:
Champagne Philipponnat – Non-Dosé
2014 Riesling Côtes de Rouffach – Domaine René Muré
2012 Château Réserve Léoville-Barton – Saint Julien
2011 Nuits-Saint-Georges – 1er Cru Les Saints Georges – Domaine Henri Gouges
2010 Les Terres Chaudes – Saumur-Champigny – Domaine des Roches Neuves
– 2011 Les Bastides – Faugères – Domaine Jean-Michel Alquier (my favourite 🙂 )
2013 Châteauneuf-du-Pâpe – Domaine de Beaurenard
– 2010 Cuvée Centenaire du Clos de Gamot – Cahors

Thanks a lot Maison Pirard for this great experience!
