French cuisine cannot be imagined without good wines. At Chez Alexandre, we provide unforgettable culinary experiences by providing the best marriages between food and wine.

Moreover, Chez Alexandre is well known for having the best selection of champagnes.

Champagne Blanc

  • Mousseux. The French terms “Mousseux” is used to refer to sparkling wine not made in the Champagne region, but that has all Champagne characteristics. Brands such as [BRAND] and [BRAND] offered at Chez Alexandre are outstanding examples of Mousseux.
  • Mumm cordon Rouge. The long aging of this wine provides to it additional flavors of vanilla, roasted nuts and a hint of toast. Mumm cordon Rouge is a result of the carefully chosen infusion of terroir and reserve wines, the finish is long.
  • Moët et Chandon. Celebrating your accomplishments and moments of success at Chez Alexandre with generosity and grandeur of Moët. Moët et Chandon champagne has been associated with glamour ever since the House was founded in 1743 by Claude Moët. These are the values that 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 Dom Pérignon bottle is definitively a distinct act of creation. The Dom Pérignon Chef de Cave’s power of creation is centered upon its absolute dedication. Chez Alexandre is proud to serve the singular result of a long and monitored elaboration process including a precise assemblage and an extended period of maturation of the lees.
  • Cristal Brut 1994. Cuvée Cristal is the ideal accompaniment to foods of great delicacy, particularly caviar, fish and sea-food such as John Dory, prepared oysters, scallops, lobster and crayfish.

Champagne Rose

  • Moët et Chandon Rosé. Moët et Chandon Rosé is a spontaneous, radiant, romantic expression of the Moët & Chandon style, a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity. Great for celebrations at Chez Alexandre.
  • Laurent Perrier Rosé. Prior to 1968, making non-vintage rosé champagne was virtually unthinkable. It was in the midst of a cultural revolution that the visionary Bernard de Nonancourt gave it its credentials. This daring wine combines real structure with freshness and a soft, vinous character. Laurent Perrier Rosé is perfect for a dinner at Chez Alexandre.
  • Dom Pérignon Rosé. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts in this harmonious version. A delicate bead caresses the mouth, while flavors of currant pâte de fruit, dried apricot, pastry and pickled ginger expand on the palate. Subtly floral, with a fine frame of acidity driving this to the mouthwatering finish of smoky mineral and dried fruit.
  • Cristal Brut Rosé. Critics have rated this wine as the best available among Champagne Rose wines.

Wines

Our selection of wines make Chez Alexandre stand out as one of the most representative French cuisine restaurants. Our selection includes:

White Wines

  • Entre deux mers. Entre-Deux-Mers is a wine region in Bordeaux, in France. It is situated between the rivers Garonne and Dordogne, and is bounded in the east by the border of the Gironde department and in the west by the Bec d’Ambès, the confluence of the Garonne and the Dordogne. This is a dry white wine result of a blend of three grape varieties: Sauvignon Blanc (primarily), Sémillon, and Muscadelle.
  • Torrontes Terrazas (Argentina). Intense and refined, this wine reveals a distinctive grapefruit and lemon zest profile, coupled with delicate flower notes and subtle mineral aromas. It is fruity and sensual, naturally balanced and fresh. A great aromatic and taste persistence, characteristic of Torrontés variety.
  • Alsace. This wine is produced in the Alsace region in France and is primarily white. Because of its Germanic influence, it is the only Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée region in France to produce mostly varietally labelled wines, typically from similar grape varieties to those used in German wine.
  • Bourgogne. The wine of Bourgogne is produced in in the valleys and slopes west of the Saône, a tributary of the Rhône. The most famous wines produced here—those commonly referred to as “Burgundies”—are dry red wines made from Pinot noir grapes and white wines made from Chardonnay grapes.
  • Rose cotes du Rhone. This is a is a wine-growing Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) for the Rhône wine region of France, which may be used throughout the region, also in those areas which are covered by other AOCs. This seductive wine has already won many blind tasting facing worldwide recognised and established roses. This wine is amongst the best examples of the Guigal quality range.

Bordeaux Wines

The wine was introduced to the Bordeaux region by the Romans, probably in the mid-1st century, to provide wine for local consumption, and high-quality wine production has been continuous in the region since then.

  • Haut Médoc/Médoc/Pessac-Léognan/Canon Froncac. The southern or up-stream part of the left bank of the Gironde is known as the Haut-Médoc (upper Médoc). 6 villages have their own appellations: Margaux, St-Julien, Pauillac, St-Estèphe, Listrac and Moulis. The remainder is classified simply as Haut-Médoc. The predominant grape planted here is Cabernet Sauvignon.
  • Margaux. If Pauillac is the bastion of ‘traditional’ Red Bordeaux, Margaux represents its other facet in producing wines that are some of the region’s most sensual and alluring. 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 finest examples are paragons of refinement and subtlety which have few parallels in Bordeaux.
    Pauiliac. The wines of Pauillac are rich, full bodied and tannic. They gracefully combine elegance with power coupled with complexity. The notable flavors of cassis, blackberry, tobacco, cigar box, spice, earth, lead pencil, cedar wood and wet forest aromas coupled with powerful wines, firm tannins and regal bearings are what many people expect from Bordeaux, especially from the Left Bank.
  • Saint-Estephe. St Estèphe is the northernmost of the most important communes of the Médoc, bordering Pauillac on its southernmost border, with only a gully and stream separating it from Ch. Lafite Rothschild. The wines can appear austere in youth, but the best typically display good depth of colour, pronounced acidity and tannins in youth, and are exceptionally long-lived. 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 largest winemaking appellations, producing more wine than Listrac, Moulis, St Estèphe, Pauillac, St Julien and Margaux combined. Many of the region’s finest vineyards can be found atop the steep limestone slopes of the village itself, although a fledgling band of garagiste producers are eschewing terroir to make small-batch, deeply-concentrated wines from their homes.

These is part of the outstanding selection of wines and champagnes at Chez Alexandre. Perfect partners for a casual, business or romantic dinner in Montreal downtown.
