There is a time and a place to go out on the town to either a dive bar or patio terrace for drinks with friends. However, just because one might be exploring the exciting night life of the Tokyo area doesn’t mean that having a nice bottle of wine at home with family or your significant other it completely off the table. Cave de Ladoucette, located between the center of Omotesando and Harajuku’s notorious Takeshita-dori, helps out with just that kind of market with a wide selection of fine wines for the amateur wine lover or the experienced wine connoisseur.
Cave de Ladoucette is by no means an inexperienced young startup wine shop. The long history of Cave de Ladoucette begins around 600 years ago in France among their well aged vineyards that are spread across several provinces of France. Each flavor and name of wine that they bottle and sell in their store originates from one area and vineyard in France. There is no question that there an extremely artisanal and masterful way in which the vineyards supplying their wine to Cave de Ladoucette is uncompromised steeped in tradition. Therefore, when you buy a bottle of wine from Cave de Ladoucette there is no question that the product that you are buying is flawless and one of a kind.
It is not just where the wine is cultured and produced that is a special rarity. The Cave de Ladoucette in Omotesando itself is a one of a kind place. The wine stored on location is kept in specific temperature controlled rooms. The showroom floor itself is kept at a certain temperature so as the samples of wine themselves do not fall below the correct temperature. Each customer is attended to personally no matter what kind of wine experience they are looking for. If that is not enough attention then customers can arrange private tasting conferences on the third floor of Cave de Ladoucette. Or if going to the store is not a possibility, customers can order their wine online or over the phone. However, because some of the products that they sell are seasonal or otherwise not in stock, it is advised that customers either call or order ahead so that they can be sure to receive the wine that they are looking for.
If you are looking for me than just a dive bar off the main drag or a cheap beer from a convenience store, then Cave de Ladoucette is something to experience.
