Aux Terrasses wine cellar, Burgundy wines, in Tournus
A passion for wine
On Burgundy soil
Before embarking on major building work, Jean-Michel Carrette had a wine cellar built in 2012. A wine from Burgundy never lets you down! He visits vineyards all over the region, tasting wines and inviting wine growers to his restaurant. Working with his young sommelier, Julien Buiret, he has developed a wine list with something for every budget. As one of the walls reads, “La vigne est un voilier vibrant dans l’océan du ciel” (a vineyard is a vibrant sailing boat on the ocean of the heavens). What more is there to say?
The ultimate accompaniment to savour and enjoy
The wine list
With a shared passion for wine, Jean-Michel Carrette and his sommelier have worked together to create a wine list with over 900 wines and a wine cellar which features some 6,000 bottles. As part of this lengthy process, they met with wine growers, driven by a desire to find the very best vintages.
The wine list includes plenty of options for flawless food and wine pairings. Guests can enjoy wines from Burgundy, the Vallée du Rhône, Beaujolais, Bordeaux, Alsace and the Jura, along with champagne and other sparkling wines for the ultimate celebrations: experience the very best that French wines and expert winegrowers have to offer.
