Caves Legrand - Bar à vin


Caves Legrand


Accessed through Galeries Vivienne and from Rue de la Banque, this wine shop was operated by several generations of Legrands.  It was bought in 2000 by Gerard Sibourd-Baudry and Christian de Chateauvieux who renovated the place while keeping its quality wines orientation.  An inspired initiative was to add a wine bar section in the middle of the shop in 2001.  


Not only do they have good wines, but the ambiance is charming with an assortment of small plates to enjoy with your wine.  It is not exactly hidden, but is in a quiet corner of Galerie Vivienne.


bon weekend!

I think the largest bottle is called a Methuselah. Sounds about right, don't you think?

How often do they have tastings?

I was disappointed that we didn't find time to visit Galerie Vivienne during our trip in June but next time it will be our first stop and I've added this wine bar to the list!
Bon week-end!

Almost better than a flower shop

I see more and more very big bottles in such shops. I'm wondering if it's because people drink more?..

Ahhh! This looks quite lovely. How delightful to take a break, enjoy wine and a snack. Yes, I'll join you!

It looks a gem, and so brilliant to add the wine bar - wish I'd known about it during my recent visit:) Happy Weekend!
