Au Bon Coin Wine List
About Au Bon Coin
A landmark next to Colmar, in a small village that all the Alsacian wine lovers know. This family business includes a small pub where you can eat some specials, but if you want to eat at the restaurant, you'd better book in advance.
The service is very attentive and traditional, just as the menu (the Chef is one of the best Choucroute specialists in the area). I always bring friends who are not from the region here, because I know we will be welcomed like home – we call it “Heimlisch”!
About the Au Bon Coin Wine List
The wine list is huge, with lots of older vintages (muscat d’Alsace de 1959, Riesling Grand Cru Brand 1988 du Domaine Zind Humbrecht, Vouvray 1947, to name a few.). Five pages full of treasures from Alsace, and Gilles is very knowledgeable about the different vintages and estates he's been collecting for over two decades.
Among all the big names and young talents from Bourgogne, Rhône or Languedoc, the most difficult will be to choose your bottle! Also, price levels are very affordable.
