French wine etiquette and its importance in French society
The art of Savoir-vivre
Wine-tasting is an essential component of Savoir-vivre. In Burgundy, we take it one step further. Moving beyond the characteristics of a wine to understand how to taste and drink it with style.
With this in mind, Agnès Mathiot-Bès de Berc created ELIJENCE, the only agency in Burgundy and indeed in France to focus on the etiquette of wine! Such skills come naturally to Agnès. The daughter of diplomats from the French and Chinese aristocracy, she learned impeccable manners from a young age. She strongly believes that courtesy and respect are vital to the success of any society.
Exuding French class is all part of Agnès’ trademark. But you’ll soon realise that there’s nothing stuffy about her!
