Wine Tasting Lunches

Introduction déjeuners oenologiques

Alain Gousse, head sommelier of our Albert 1er gastronomic restaurant will be delighted to share with you his passion for wine. He proposes a monthly meeting of one or several wine makers, in which they share their know-how and allow you to discover their best wines through a tasting. The morning wine tasting session is followed by a gastronomic lunch in the Albert 1er restaurant with the elaboration of a special menu in accordance with the winemaker’s wines, who will take pleasure in joining you at the table.

Wine Tasting Lunches - May 2015 - Christophe Grandmougin - Rully in Burgundy

The Saint-Jacques wine estate has existed for quite a long time. It was bought in 1955 by Christophe Amédé Grandmougin, then taken over in 1991 by his son Christophe, who is still running it and producing great Burgundy wines, which have won several awards over the years. In the past, the place was also offering shelter and food to pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela, hence the name of the estate.
