Who would have thought that the best wine bar in the world would be in Toulouse? And yes, like everyone else, I thought we would find the best places to taste wines in Bordeaux of course.
Here is my sensational discovery of a rare and confidential place in the heart of my beautiful city of Toulouse!
Best wine bar in the world in Toulouse – Where is it?
It is in an old district of Toulouse, the district of “La Bourse”, that it is located this bar-restaurant. https://www.n5winebar.com/fr/ Its address: N ° 5 Wine Bar 5, rue de la Bourse 31000 Toulouse. The nearest metro station is Esquirol.
Best wine bar in the world in Toulouse – How did it stand out?
The N ° 5 Wine Bar was voted Europe’s Best Wine Bar in 2016 and World’s Best Wine Bar in 2017. It will again be re-elected the world’s best wine bar at the 2018 World’s Best Wine Lists Awards. Among the jury of this competition were great oenologists, fine sommeliers and some wine journalists.
Best wine bar in the world in Toulouse – What is its concept?
Held by Thomas CABROL, this beautiful space is dedicated to wine tasting and evenings on the theme of wine.
For the bar, the principle is simple: At the entrance, you buy a card that you credit the amount you want. Then you freely access all the wine tasting by inserting the card in the Enomatic. With 20,000 bottles and 3,800 wine references of French and foreign wines, the bar offers more than 500 wines by the glass and sommeliers are there to help or advise you. In addition, the card can be kept if there is a balance for your next party at 5 Wine Bar.
For the bar, no reservation but for the restaurant, it is advisable to book in advance. Indeed, one can enjoy a good meal with wine agreements that will sublimate the flavors of the dishes and conversely emphasize the subtlety of the chosen wines. The “Voyage Terre et Mer” menu at 45 Euros guarantees you exceptional value for money.
So if, on the occasion of your stay in Toulouse, you want to live a taste experience, travel through grape varieties, French grands crus, vineyards of the whole world and treat you as much in the plate as in the glasses, it is at the 5 Wine Bar to go!
