Favorite thing: I believe it was shrimp56 who advised me a few years back to try Sancerre wine. It's an excellent wine with which to start you wine education. It reminds me distinctly of Merlot BUT it’s French.
A versatile Loire wine, you may drink it as a red (rouge), white (blanc) or rosé; it's not too dry & is a smidgen fruity. The varietal is a pinot noir and is described as "Full ruby with a hint of garnet-red...Aromas of morello-cherries on brandy; leathery and smoky impressions...Pleasant first impression with evidence of tannin. This wine needs to round out while" aging.
But my advice to you is to drink as much Sancerre wine in Paris as possible!
Fondest memory: Last trip, I tried it in as many restaurants as I could find it: Le Vieux Bistro, Trumilou, and La Boulangerie.
