Wine list selected by Olivier Poussier, Meilleur Sommelier du Monde, 2000).

The price includes river cruise and gourmet dinner: appetizers, starter, main dish, cheese, dessert, delicacies. The menu varies according to season, but aperitifs and wine are extra, so this is an expensive option compared to other operators.
