Dilettantes: La Maison du Champagne

Your one-stop shop for champagne.

Dilettantes is a champagne mecca. Offering over 130 different varieties of champagnes, Dilettantes is the brainchild of Fanny Heucq, a native champinoise, whose aim it is to bring attention to the Champagnes de Terroirs and also to promote smaller-scale, quality champagnes.

The shop sells bubbly from all four regions of Champagne. Luckily, their degustation list features six champagnes. With the tasting menu changing weekly, you can truly get a taste of them all, while enjoying a delightful plate of charcuterie and cheese in their 17th century cellar. The products of these 25 artisanal winemakers are truly some of the best you can find in Paris!
