Vosne-Romanée, Clos Vougeot and Richebourg, but also Buzet, Chardonnay and Bourgogne Aligoté, we will find the perfect pairing no matter your budget! In addition to the finest Grands Crus, there are also lesser-known gems – exceptional bottles that make up the majority of La Ruchotte’s® rich offering and which are worthy of being discovered.

More than 350 vineyards, exceptional wines and carefully selected Grands Crus

La Ruchotte’s® Frédéric Ménager’s aim was to select a majority of wines from small organic or biodynamic estates that share his values. However, our wine cellar also houses exceptional Grands Crus as well as lesser-known wines, which our Chef prefers, "Without any compunction, these winegrowers have one thing in common: the quality of the product created at by the ‘hand of the winegrower’.” An authentic quality that Frédéric Ménager regards very highly.

An exclusive selection of over 2,000 bottles

La Ruchotte’s® wine cellar houses more than 2,000 bottles of wines from Burgundy that are carefully selected according to Fred’s fundamental principles. Whether it’s "La Cave Grosses Quilles," "La Cave Fais-toi Plaisir," "La Cave Prestige," "La Cave Qui Bulle," "La Cave à Desserts" or "La Cave Digestive," La Ruchotte’s® wine selection was crafted to satisfy every taste, every need and every desire. Of course, all the most beautiful Burgundian domains are also present in our wine selection.

"The Ferme de la Ruchotte® is a restaurant where you’ll find simple regional cuisine, but also great French gastronomy that will bring epicureans the highest level of joy. Accompanying this, a great wine list that will come elicit fun in this joyful and gourmand atmosphere, spotlighting the restaurant’s natural authenticity.

You will find great Burgundian classics, exceptional wines, but also unusual wines from Burgundy and elsewhere that breathe the House’s rural and natural spirit."
Maxime Brunet, Sommelier at William Frachot restaurant
