Beaune: Caves Madeleine

8 Rue du Faubourg Madeleine , Phone: 03 80 22 93 30

All I can say is I am sorry it took us so long to go there, as it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

We have been hearing about this place for years, and during this visit it again was highly recommended to us by some of our local wine merchant pals (as an aside, please check out Adrien at “Wine Connection”). All I can say is I am sorry it took us so long to go there, as it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening. A wall of bottles of wine, some rare and hard to find, and all fairly priced, which you can buy and take away or enjoy with your dinner. (Another ’09 Mugnier Chambolle-Musigny gave its all at our little table. Yes, I indeed am a creature of habit.) If you don’t see the wine you seek, ask the wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable owner, Laurent (apparently also known as Lo Lo), and he’ll most likely be able to find it among the additional thousands of bottles downstairs. The food was terrific, just perfectly prepared, lovingly sourced, rustic, homemade and delicious Burgundian classics, as well as some specials, all described on a small chalkboard and enthusiastically explained by Laurent. That night we happily discovered he sometimes brings in from Spain some amazing and hard to find, very high quality Jamón ibérico, which really hit the spot as a starter, as did some shaved porcini mushrooms. We also really enjoyed our fish and beef dishes. We definitely will return.
