Le Mercière Wine List
About Le Mercière
Anytime I need real Lyonnaise food, I go to Le Mercière, a “bouchon Lyonnais” that has offered typical recipes for 40 years. The Chef and owner, Jean-Louis Manoa, grew up with Marcel Lapierre and eventually met with Jules Chauvet and other legendary producers from Beaujolais. Naturally, he quite soon developed a great appetite and curiosity for good wines in general.
Today, the team has a nice international background. Kilian, the sommelier, used to be a wine director in NYC. Together with the General Manager César, former Maitre D’ at Le Bernardin (NYC), they are in charge of extending the wine list with only one rule i mind: keep on learning and being excited about wine!
Don’t forget to look at the larger formats as well; for example, Clos de La Roilette (with age) can be found there!
(Editor’s note: Le Mercière’s General Manager is the husband of our Lyon ambassador Marie Ponsonnet)
