Story of the Caves du Louvre

This private mansion was built by André Eynaud. A great Parisian bourgeois, he was one of the twenty-five privileged wine merchants at the court of King Louis XV.

These cellars were extended by tunnels to the Louvre palace and, as the story goes, they allowed the palace to be supplied with wine in complete discretion…

Later, the Hotel Eynaud was bought by Jacques-François Trudon, the heir of the Royal wax factories of wax, which produced the candles used for the domestic lighting of the Louvre and Versailles palaces. Jacques-François then created a grocery store offering the sale of wines which operated these cellars until very recently.
