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!
Dilettantes also offers a variety of classes, as well as their tastings. Check out their events calendar here. This month’s events include the first enology atelier on April 11, a Heucq Père & fils champagne tasting on April 20 from 11:30 a.m.- 1 p.m., as well as a Morel Père et Fils tasting on April 25 from 7:30 – 9 p.m.
