House champagne at Guy Savoy

  • 9

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone could help me with this. I recently had a great lunch at Guy Savoy in Paris and had a glass of their house champagne to start for 22 euro. Too bad I didn't care to ask what kind of champagne it was or if it was in collaboration with a produce. What I know is that I really enjoyed it and now I wonder if anyone out there knows what kind of champagne this is and where I could acquire it?

  1. I would call them and ask -- they're open all summer.

    1. So jealous. .
      What else did you have?
      Merci raz!

      1. From Google from a "figaro magazine" article:

        la cuvée Saint Vincent 1996 de R. & L. Legras

            The lunch special for 105 euros is one of best deals in town. .
            How was the artichoke soup?

              While special is excellent, l had the finest whole guinea hen served in two courses shared with another, the wine prices are scary from a superb list. The wine has cost me three times the meal each time in three trips, my bad.
              Watch out for the cheese course, they ask when you want it, making it seem that it is part of the special, it is not and adds 40 euros/pp for a just ok cheese course.

                The wine list gets us too. .stunning list!
                I should of taken the sommeliers 10 euro recommendation for a glass of wine.
                Oh well, in Paris, we like to go big, at least once.

                  We haven't looked at their wine list in years. And have never been charged less then 20euro for a glass. They've always poured from newly opened bottles, mostly excellent Burgundies. Not bad at 300 euros for two excellent lunches

                    But the wine list is so fantastic that I would consider it, 'wine porn'. .
