The Bistro à Champlain wine cellar


On June 17th, 2015, the Estérel Resort acquired a real Quebec treasure: Bistro à Champlain’s wine collection, which contains more than 5 000 bottles, and committed to be carrying on the legacy of this iconic winery. Today, the new wine cellar has more than 8 000 bottles, including close to 1 800 names.

From the Pétrus 1953, to the 6 liters of Romanée Saint-Vivant, to the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 1990, to the Château Margaux, Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Latour, and Château Haut-Brion, Estérel’s prestigious cellar has rare and hidden treasures waiting to be savored by true wine lovers.
