Within the Paris we know, there is another layer of Paris where only the cognoscenti have explored, "the private and Privileged world of exclusive pleasures and hideways. That was the case of my very private and privileged "wine Tasting" at the The Four Season Hotel George V.
George V, the most exquisite and prestigious Hotel in Paris is graced on a daily basis by fresh and spectacular flower arrangements cautiously and beautifully designed by floral designer Jeff Leatham. Flowers are flown in twice a week from Amsterdam. Although, it is not my first time at le Cinq. This time, it was different. I was treated to a once-in-a-lifetime experience wine tasting.

Upon arrival, I was escorted through the kitchen to the hidden and spectacular wine cellar located 14 meters below floor level, below the Siene and the metro. Here, Cedric Mountpoint led us to the amazing infrastructure of carved stones and history where the most exquisite and prized rare bottles of wine are stored at the perfect temperature including Corton Charlemagne by Coche-Dury, a range of Musignys, and the rare Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1945 (36,000 Euros)
The building foundation goes deep into the stone quarry where quarriers extracted the stones to helped build the nearby Arc de Triomphe. Victoria Yaeger Sawyer, Afsaneh Akhtari, Fashion Designer Sonya Rolin, Ivonne Cohen, Asim Abdullah were transported to the magical world of wine, hors d'oeuvres and a first class display of the fabulous 50,000 bottle collection of the world's best wines. Such a treat was led by Director and Sommelier, Eric Beaumard. It was without a doubt, the best wine cellar I have ever visited! It is widely regarded as one of the best in Europe!!!! Thanks Sonya Rolin for such an amazing treat. The history along behind the cellar was unforgettable.
