Underneath the Hotel de Paris in Monte-Carlo, vast wine cellars provide a space to store the legendary wines destined for the hotel’s restaurants, including the Louis XV – Alain Ducasse.

With 350,000 bottles ranged in racks stretching for two kilometres, and incorporating 1,500 square metres of cellar space as well as a tasting area, rooms dedicated to historic bottles, and facilities that have been around for nearly a century and a half, the wine cellars at the Hotel de Paris are much more than just places to store wine.

That’s down to the bottles that are kept there, among which you can find some of the very best wines, particularly French wines, from Bordeaux’s best-known classics (Haut-Brion, Pétrus, Yquem, Lafite-Rothschild, Mouton-Rothschild, Latour, etc.) to the most sought-after Burgundies (Romanée-Conti, Corton-Charlemagne, Clos de Vougeot, Meursault, Gevrey-Chambertin, etc.).

It’s also down to the vintages that the cellar holds, some of which are more than a hundred years old, some of which are extremely rare – such as the renowned 1961 Bordeaux, the finest of the century – and some of which are historically important.

Finally, it’s down to the history of the cellars themselves, which were first hollowed out in 1874 and have since survived a number of trials and seen many enthusiasts and aficionados come and go.

While the cellars can now be hired privately for some very special events, their main role is to supply the hotel’s restaurants, including the three-Michelin-starred Louis XV – Alain Ducasse.
