Rare and precious wines from the very beginning

The Café de l’Homme wine cellar contains 200 selected wines from the best artisan winemakers. Exceptional nectar in magnums, jeroboams and imperials - which include 16 rare bottles of vintages no one can expect to come across more than once in a lifetime - occupy a very special place here.

They include several clarets, such as 1982 Pétrus, the incomparable 1990 Château Cheval Blanc, Saint Emilion, the famous 2000 Château Latour, Pauillac, the essential Mouton Rothschild 1990, Pauillac, and the celebrated Château Margaux, 1986, Margaux.

They also offer a fine selection of Burgundies, Loire and Rhône Valley wines to tempt novice and experienced oenophiles.

The Café de l’Homme wine cellar in the historic undercroft of the building is not open to the public, but it is possible to view it on request for a truly unforgettable experience.
