In groups of 12, guests can come face to face with the delicate and powerful nose of the Head Sommelier. During the educational and gastronomical aperitifs, he will present the singular and prestigious vineyards accompanied by Chef Christopher Hache’s culinary bites.

Meet the master

Renowned for the quality and relevance of his selections, Xavier’s primary focus at the Hôtel de Crillon is to reconstitute this historical wine cellar and create one of the best places for wine in the capital.

Xavier Thuizat’s expertise was also put to use in creating a divine complement to Chef Christopher Hache’s cuisine, in the heart of the gastronomical restaurant L’Ecrin. He has a talent for introducing the most surprising unions to gourmet palates, from traditional red wine to startling Japanese sake, by way of the prestigious Pu’er tea from China. Talk about ‘wine’derful.
