Cocottes and La Cave des Sommeliers had already announced it at the end of 2020 and it’s on Thursday the 21st of January that the concept entitled “WINE NOT?” was launched in Merl. Indeed, the Luxembourgish ready-to-eat brand and the wine expert decided to join forces to create a new sales and tasting place.
The goal is to create a different kind of shop by combining the atmosphere of both La Cave des Sommeliers, that comes with great wines and experts and the “cosy nests“ of Cocottes.
The boutique is real attraction for wine lovers. In fact, it will be possible to discover and (soon) taste about twenty selected wines thanks to wine by the glass dispensers accessible via a prepaid card. La Cave des Sommeliers offers more than 300 different wines (or 800 on catalogue) and thus presents their favourite wines, discoveries and great classics.
As for Cocottes, its counter is filled with gourmet dishes, pastries, snacks and other grocery assortments, offering more than 150 references.
And this collaboration is not just a shared space, it is also an opportunity to find under the same roof complementary professions, products that go well together or even wine/food pairings that can be bought directly in the shop.
“This place, which opens in the midst of the closure of cafés and restaurants, is a real challenge. It’s a partial opening as we won’t be able to offer customers the opportunity to fully enjoy the place, but we are convinced that this launch will still be a success,” comments Stéphanie Jauquet, director of Cocottes.
