Le Bec-Fin (Philadelphia, PA)

This Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, restaurant gets bragging rights for its Rhône Valley-focused wine list.


Published:

Describing themselves as guardians of tradition in their unwavering commitment to excellence, Executive Chef Nicholas Elmi’s modern French creations are served alongside Chef Perrier’s classics. The common thread is artistic cuisine with the greatest depth of flavor.

Destination Bottles:

Domaine du Vieux Lazaret 2007 Cuvée Exceptionnelle (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)
Domaine Ramonet 2006 Boudriotte Premiere Cru (Chassagne-Montrachet)
Ployez-Jacquemart NV Cuvée Georges Perrier (Champagne)

Rhône Valley wines are well represented on the 400-plus label list. The emphasis is French, focusing on classic producers as well as rising stars. Even when sourcing a wine from outside of France, it’s always considered from the French perspective.

“Our sommeliers are obsessed with the Rhône Valley. Rhône wines are spectacular, full of ripe fruit with an underlying earthiness that keeps them from being too jammy. Of course, a sommelier is never far from his or her Champagne, and ours are no exception.” —Chef Georges Perrier
