Champagne and wine
French cuisine cannot be imagined without good wines. At Chez Alexandre, we recommend unforgettable culinary experiences by providing the best marriage between food and wine.
In addition, Chez Alexandre is well known for having the best selection of champagne.
Champagne by the glass for any occasion. Sword available to cut your bottles.
In 2000 & 2001 Chez Alexandre was crowned the best champagne bar in Montreal by Moët et Chandon & Cordon Rouge.
Foamy. The French name “Mousseux” is used to refer to sparkling wine not produced in the Champagne region, but it has all the characteristics of Champagne. The brands offered at Chez Alexandre are outstanding examples of Mousseux.
Mumm le cordon Rouge. The long aging of this wine provides the extra flavors of vanilla and roasted nuts and a hint of toast. Mumm le cordon Rouge is a result of the carefully chosen infusion of the terroir and wine reserves.
Moët et Chandon. Celebrate your accomplishments and moments of success at Chez Alexandre with the generosity and splendor of Moët. Moët et Chandon champagne has been associated with glamour since the House was founded in 1743 by Claude Moët. These are the values we share and the values that inspired the founder’s grandson Jean-Remy Moët to share this champagne with the world.
Dom Pérignon 1998. Each bottle of Dom Pérignon is definitely a distinct act of creation. The Chef of Dom Pérignon centers the power of the Caverne de Création on his absolute devotion. Chez Alexandre is proud to serve the singular result of a long and controlled elaboration process including a precise fitting and an extended period of maturation of the lees.
Cristal Brut 1994. Cuvée Cristal is the ideal accompaniment to very delicate food products, particularly caviar, fish, seafood, oysters, scallops, lobster and crayfish.
Moët et Chandon Rosé. Moët et Chandon Rosé is a spontaneous, radiant and romantic expression of Moët et Chandon, a style distinguished by its brilliant fruitiness, seductive palate and elegant maturity. Great for celebrations at Chez Alexandre.
Laurent Perrier Rosé. Before 1968, making non-vintage rosé champagne was virtually unthinkable. It was in the midst of a cultural revolution that visionary Bernard de Nonancourt gave it its credentials. This audacious wine combines real structure with freshness and a soft, vinous character. Laurent Perrier Rosé is perfect for dinner at Chez Alexandre.
Dom Perrier Rosé. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts in this harmonious version. A delicate pearl caresses the palate, while the fruit paste, dried apricot, pastry and pickled ginger flavors spread over the palate. Subtly floral, with a good framework of acidity leading to the appetizing finish of smoky mineral and dried fruit.
Cristal Brut Rosé. Critics have rated this rosé wine as the best available among the Champagne.
Our selection of wines makes Chez Alexandre stand out as one of the most renowned French restaurants.
Our selection includes:
Haut Médoc/Médoc/Pessac-Léognan/Canon Froncac. The southern or upstream part of the left bank of the Gironde is known as the Haut-Médoc (Upper Médoc). 6 villages have their own appellations: Margot, Saint-Julien, Pauillac, St.-Estèphe, Listrac and Moulis. The rest are classified simply as Haut-Médoc. The predominant grape planted here is Cabernet Sauvignon.
Margaux. Pauillac is the stronghold of ‘traditional’ Red Bordeaux, Margot represents its other facet in the production of wines that are a little bit of the region’s most sensual and charming. The largest commune in the Médoc, it encompasses the communes of Cantenac, Soussans, Arsac and Labaude, in addition to the village of Margaux itself. Its best examples are the paragons of refinement and subtlety that have few parallels in Bordeaux.
Pauiliac. Pauillac wines are rich, enveloped and tannic. They gracefully combine elegance with coupled power and complexity. Notable flavors of black currant, blackberry, tobacco, cigar box, spice, earth, pencil, cedar, woody and moist forest aromas coupled with powerful wines, firm tannins, and majestic behavior are what many people expect from Bordeaux, especially on the left side.
Saint-Estephe. St. Estèphe is the northernmost of the most important communes in the Médoc, bordering Pauillac at its southernmost border, with only a ravine and a stream separating it from Ch. Lafite Rothschild. The wines may appear austere in youth, but typically show good depth of color, pronounced acidity and tannins in youth, and are exceptionally long-lasting. At their best, they are the equal of almost any Bordeaux.
St-Emilion. First officially classified in 1954, St. Emilion is one of Bordeaux’s greatest winemaking appellations, producing more wine than Listrac, Moulis, St. Estèphe, Pauillac, St. Julien and Margaux combined. Many of the region’s best vineyards can be found set on the steep limestone slopes of the village itself, although a rookie band of garage producers avoid the terroir to make wines produced in small, deeply concentrated runs from their homes.
Entre deux mers. Entre-Deux-Mers is a wine region in Bordeaux, France. It is located between the Garonne and the Dordogne and is bordered to the east by the border of the department of Gironde and to the west by the Bec d’Ambès, the confluence of the Garonne and the Dordogne. It is a result of dry white wine from a mixture of three grape varieties: mainly Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle.
Torrontes Terrazas (Argentina). Intense and refined, this wine reveals a distinctive grapefruit and lemon zest profile, coupled with delicate floral notes and subtle mineral aromas. It is fruity and sensual, naturally balanced and fresh. Great aroma and persistence of taste, characteristic of the Torrontés variety.
L’Alsace. This wine is produced in the Alsace region of France and is mainly white. Because of its Germanic influence, it is the only Appellation d’Origine Controlled Region in France to produce mainly variants of labelled wines, typically of grape varieties similar to those used in German wine.
La Bourgogne. Burgundy wine is produced in the valleys and slopes west of the Saône, a tributary of the Rhone. The most famous wines produced here – those generally referred to as “des Bourgognes” – are dry red wines made from Pinot Noir grapes and white wines made from Chardonnay grapes.
The Rose cotes du Rhone. This is an Appellation Viticole d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) for the Rhone wine region of France, which can be used anywhere in the region, also in those areas that are covered by other AOCs. This seductive wine has already won many blind tastings facing the world’s recognized and established rosés. This wine is among the best examples of the quality range of Guigal.
