Le Purgatoire Wine List
About Le Purgatoire
This is actually an old chapel, changed into wine pub in the 16th century. In spring 2019, it was turned into a trendy wine bar in the Alsatian capital. The cosy interior and its large and sunny terrace on place de Zurich make it a very attractive spot to hang out (don’t miss the Thursday morning markets just in front of the door!).
The menu offers tasty food with a homy feel, with nice daily specials, and with great care for wine and food pairings. All in all, this is a nice spot half-way between the student's district and the touristic city centre.
About the Le Purgatoire Wine List
More than a third of the wine list is dedicated to Alsatian wines, mostly organic and biodynamic. Big names such as Weinbach, Albert Mann, Deiss and more are on the list, but also the new and up and coming generation of winemakers.
You'll also find wines from other parts of France on the list, as well as some great Barolo's. The price level is very affordable, since it is based on the wine shop price, with an additional corkage fee of around 10€. A place not to miss!
