Brought together in 1914, Claudius Burdel's Caves du Café Anglais and Frédéric Delair's Caves de la Tour d'Argent are the fabulous legacy we look after today. Collector's items, great vintages from incomparable years or confidential cuvées, nearly 300,000 bottles are gently waiting to be served.
The rarity of certain bottles gives rise to emotion
As Head Sommelier, the cellar and its immeasurable historical heritage are the focus of Victor Gonzalez’s attention, as he oversees both its preservation and its development. Following in the footsteps of his predecessor David Ridgway – La Tour’s Chief Sommelier for over 40 years – Victor Gonzalez is the protector and guardian of many hidden treasures, all brought to perfect maturity, including the Burgundy wines for which La Tour is particularly renowned. Friendly relationships with the winemakers, some of which have lasted for over 150 years, are also key to this cellar, where the prestige of each bottle lies as much in its appellation as in the winemaker and its history.
A unique expertise
Matured in the restaurant’s historic cellars, all our bottles bear the Tour d’Argent seal, guaranteeing their origin and ageing in optimal conditions.
Each bottle in our cellars is the object of the utmost attention from our sommeliers, who pamper these grands crus on a daily basis. These exceptional bottles are part of the extraordinary gastronomic experience that our sommeliers offer each of our guests, thanks to their knowledge of the land and wine, and their unique expertise.
