E. LACOUR will represent the French Champagne: this is a small Champagne producer with 50 years of experience. Half of their grapes go to a big name’s Champagne house!
They do not sell in Japan yet. Therefore you will be the first to drink it in all Asia!
All the Champagnes introduced on that night have the Appellation “Premier Cru ”

Our venue: The Michelin Star’s Restaurant Benoit in Omotesando
Opened in 2005 in Aoyama, BENOIT is a restaurant produced by Alain Ducasse. The restaurant has the same name and esprit as the ever-popular traditional bistrot in Paris established nearly 100 years ago.
The materials for the interior décor including the solid oak Versailles parquet flooring, cement lattice in the antique motifs, bistro tables of solid walnut were all procured from France. The pleasant and warm atmosphere is reminiscent of a mansion in southern France.
Moreover, the antique bottles, vintage steel boxes and glazed brownware pottery that serve as accents to the interior were chosen by Alain Ducasse himself at flea markets in France. You may also notice the frescos painted on the ceilings, which bring to mind the skies of Provence. Please enjoy an atmosphere and taste of Parisian bistrot while looking over the night view of Aoyama.
