After or during tasting, if your start building an appetite you can always grab a bite at L'Estaminet des Enfants Rouges whose menu with charcuterie, pig feet and blood sausage (boudin noir) has a bouchon lyonnais feel to it.
Other recommended food options in the market are Moroccan and Japanese.
Maitresse de Chai sounds more sexy than its translation, Cellar Master. No feminine version in English I guess.
