Reduce the accessibility of excellence, this is also the goal of the Cité cave. 3,000 wine references and the possibility to taste them for cheap, assures François Deseille, delegate of the Cité: “Here we have the largest wine cellar in the world. And you will have about fifty wines by the glass in less than five euro “, he detailed before listing:” Saint-Véran, Pinot Noir de Bourgogne. Because it is a city that must be so popular. But you will also have Romanée-Conti. You will also have the possibility to taste very very great vintages, for more expensive of course, but by the glass, while a bottle is obviously inaccessible. “

We will probably be here for more than 100 euros a glass … But it will remain a unique moment. And this is the goal of this City of Gastronomy and Wine: to create rare moments.
