It’s great fun to duck flying corks and watch Champagne erupt from the bottle, but really, did you buy that bottle for the show? Let us show you how to get more in your glass. The way to open a bottle of Champagne is quietly as a whisper, or as the French say “pet de nonne” – a nun’s fart. Isn’t saying “a nun’s fart” more fun than splashing Champagne?
In France, it’s against the law to water a vineyard.
Does this surprise you? The flavors and textures of a vineyard’s wine vary each year due to climate changes. Of course, some years are drier than others, but you won’t see watering systems in the French vineyards. Michel explains it very simply, “Mother Nature needs to do her job.”
-Please note that our host will do everything in their power to accommodate your table request, but as humans are an unpredictable species, we may have to seat you elsewhere to avoid you waiting for a long time for your specific table.
-If you absolutely MUST be at a specific table, please include that in the notes section of your reservation; for instance, if you want to bring a furry friend along, or cannot physically ascend a staircase.
-Any seating labeled “Bar” or “Upstairs Bar” is indeed a seat at the bar, not a table.
-We will allow a courtesy 15 minutes from your reservation time until we give away your table. If you’re running late, please call us at 828.350.1140.
-We take credit cards to secure your reservation. If you are a no-call/no-show we charge your card $25 per person. We do understand things come up, so please cancel at least an hour and a half before your reservation.
-Bouchon will no longer accept reservations for parties larger than 6 people due to our small space and limited seating. If you have a larger group wanting to enjoy our French Comfort Food, please call our sister location, RendezVous. They will do everything they can to accommodate your larger party: 828.348.0909
Bouchon will strictly follow current CDC guidelines to keep everyone safe. Buncombe County is currently under a mask mandate. This means guests must wear a mask covering the lower half, from the nose down, of your beautiful faces upon entry, exit, and any time not seated at the table.
