Hôtel de Paris cellars to showcase Bordeaux’s finest wines at Journée des Grands Vins

With the famous wine cellars of the Hôtel de Paris turning 150 this year, Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer is paying homage to their illustrious contents with a series of special tours and tasting experiences. Up first is an event honouring the Grands Vins de Bordeaux.  

At 10am on 5th April, the sommeliers at the Hôtel de Paris will be opening the doors to the cellars – the largest hotel wine cellars in the world – and decanting a collection of the region’s most renowned wines. 

On the menu will be tastings of six of Bordeaux’s biggest names, including Château Haut-Brion, Clarence de Haut Brion 2016, Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux 2018, Château Margaux 2019, Château d’Yquem 2021 and Château Yquem 2005, in the presence of the estates’ managers.

Following the degustation, visitors will be invited to head over to the Hôtel Hermitage for a gastronomic lunch at Chef Yannick Alléno’s Pavyllon Monte-Carlo.

The daytime experience will round out with an informative lecture on the vineyards of the Bordeaux region and how they are being affected by climate change.


The full experience costs €450 per person, while the tour, tasting and lecture package costs €200.  

A second tour will be taking place in the evening, complete with tastings of Bordeaux’s finest wines, ahead of a six-course gourmet dinner by Chef Alléno. It will be a considerably more intimate and exclusive affair that will cost €2,000 per person.  

Other similar experiences will be offered throughout the year, including a Tenuta San Guido-Bolgheri themed event on 11th June and a Moët Hennessy Diageo occasion on 7th November.
