Service Description

This discreetly modest vineyard with its roots in the same soil that gave life to wines in the Middle Ages, affords us the opportunity of sensing the spirit of place in one of Paris' oldest and most renowned quarters. The Square Laurent Prache hosts Paris’ smallest vineyard. With only ten vines of Gamay from the Beaujolais village of Julienas, it can hardly be called a vineyard. But the modesty of the vineyard is more than compensated by the enthusiasm of its supporters. Among the 2007 sponsors of the “St-Julienas-des-Prés” enclosure is notably John Simenon, the son of Georges Simenon, the famous French author who wrote the detective series with the commissioner Maigret. Yves Cambeborde, the French chef who inspired ‘bistronomy’ is also a supporter. Julienas is one of the ten Beaujolais crus. Its fruity and lively wine comes from a black gamay with white juice, still handpicked. It has good body and when grown naturally and vinified properly, can be kept from 5 to 8 years. Includes
