Per Se does not have a wine director, but head sommelier Michel Couvreux manages the wine program at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant. After working in top restaurants in Paris and New York, including L' Arpége, Guy Savoy, Le Bernardin and Cru, Couvreux joined Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Per Se in 2009. The veteran wine expert is also in charge of the dining room staff's wine training.
Per Se's wine list features wines from around the world, including older vintages and wines from small producers. The list includes an impressive selection of half bottles, magnums and vintage champagnes. We recommend the set wine pairing when choosing the nine-course menus.
