- 172 Total (160 Racked) Bottle Capacity
160 racked bottle capacity, 12 bulk bottle capacity, 1.2 cubic feet of bulk storage.
Many manufacturers offer a RANGE of bottle capacities. Unfortunately, TOTAL bottle capacity is very different from RACKED bottle capacity. Make sure to find out how many bottles will be resting on racks versus how many bottles will be resting on other bottles. The distinction is important because bottles resting on bottles can break or get scratched, or labels can smudge or tear. Bottles on bottles also are much harder to access than racked bottles.
You'll find that Le Cache breaks out their racked, bulk and total bottle capacities individually. Each racked bottle rests directly on the wood rack. The bulk storage is located at the top of the rack, where long-term storage and extra-large bottles can be carefully stacked on top of each other.
- Universal Racking (3-3/4" Opening)
Fits most individual wine bottle sizes, including Burgundy and Champagne bottles.
Many manufacturers build racks that can handle standard wine bottles, but the racks won't handle a growing number of special wine bottle sizes, such as some imported wines, Champagne bottles, etc.
Le Cache racks are built to handle almost every size of individual bottle including Champagne bottles. Whereas standard racking typically measures 3-1/4 inches wide, Le Cache racking measures 3-3/4 inches wide throughout the cabinet.
- Interlock Cherry Wood Racking
Universal bottle capacity comprised of sealed cherry wood
Metal racks can scratch bottles and tear labels, and sometimes they can bend out of shape under the heavy weight of racked wine bottles. Try sliding a bottle in and out of a metal rack, then do the same in a wood rack. Which feels better to you?
Le Cache all-wood racking is constructed from premium cherry wood, finished and sealed, and features the tiniest attentions to detail, including eased edges, tapered ends, precision fit, hot-glue assembly and double-sealed finish.
- Premium Exterior: Cherry Wood Construction
Most manufacturers build their cabinets with oak wood, which has a strong and distinctive grain even after the "factory finish." The finish generally refers to the stain color which is applied to the wood. Make sure that you're happy with oak's grain and texture before you purchase your cabinet.
All Le Cache cabinets are constructed from premium cherry wood, including solid cherry wood doors. Le Cache offers a choice of three hand-stained finishes - Provincial, Classic or Chocolate - each created to highlight the beautiful grains of natural cherry wood. After staining, a clear-coat sealant is applied by hand - twice - to protect and enrich the wood finish.
- Premium Factory Finish (Choice of 2 Colors): Provincial or Classic
- Crown and Base Molding (Shipped in a Separate Box)
- Hand-Carved Wood Trim
- CellarPro Cooling System
Designed and built by the same people who bring you Le Cache, the ultra-quiet, vibration-free CellarPro includes upgraded components and new features, resulting in an advanced cooling system that outperforms the competition in every category. Each CellarPro cooling unit comes with an electronic thermostat and digital LED display, allowing you to precisely set the desired temperature inside your cabinet. In addition, the cooling system features automatic defrost to prevent ice build-up and adjustable humidity control that easily maintains the optimal humidity, up to 70% RH.
- CellarPro Features Powder-Coated Dark Grey Finish
Le Cache believes that wine bottles, not the cooling unit, should be featured in your cabinet. If you have glass windows on your doors and your cooling unit is painted a light color, make sure that you like what you see when the doors are closed.
Le Cache wine cabinets are sold with custom cooling units from CellarPro. Each unit is powder-coated grey so that it's "hidden" inside the cabinet when the doors are closed.
- Optional Cooling System Upgrade
The cooling system may be upgraded to the CellarPro 1800-XT, which offers extra cooling power with slightly more noise (approximately 10 dBA higher) and is designed for larger wine cabinets, warmer environments and/or commercial applications.
- Digital Display and Temperature Control
- SB/0 Technology and Top-Vent Exhaust - Zero Set Back from Wall
Many cooling systems require at least SIX INCHES of space between the wall and the cabinet in order for the cooling system to operate properly. Even with top-vent cooling systems, many cabinets require THREE INCHES of space between the wall and the cabinet.
Le Cache cabinets have been reengineered with SB/0 Technology so that, together with CellarPro's top-vent cooling system, the back of the cabinets can be placed right up against the wall.
- Clearance Requirements
Unlike the Contemporary and Storage Series wine cabinets, which require 18 inches of clearance above the wine cabinet, the upright European Country Series wine cabinets require just 13 inches of clearance above the cabinet (the reason is that the additional height of the European Country series wine cabinets is due to molding, so additional clearance is not necessary).
- Foil-Backed Polyisocyanurate Insulation
- Low-Heat Interior Light
- Security Lock
- Shipping Dimensions
Le Cache European Country series wine cabinets are shipped with the Crown and Base molding in a separate box. Other than the moldings, the European Country wine cabinets have exactly the same dimensions as the Contemporary Series wine cabinets. (The height and width dimensions increase only after the moldings are added to the cabinet.) Therefore, when maneuvering the cabinet inside the house, you should use the (smaller) dimensions of the Contemporary Series cabinets to estimate whether the European Country Series cabinets will be able to reach its intended destination.
- Five-Year Limited Warranty
Le Cache stands behind their products, offering 5 years of coverage on the entire cooling system, including all labor and materials. If your cooling system stops functioning, Le Cache will send you a factory-refurbished replacement cooling system, and you can return your original cooling unit to them for repair AFTER you receive and replace the cooling system. That way, your wine won't go unprotected unneccesarily. Your cost is the freight to ship the the cooling system to and from the factory - Le Cache will take care of everything else.
- 2-Year Warranty on Entire Cabinet
For two years from the date of original delivery, your Le Cache warranty covers all parts and labor to repair or replace any part of the product which proves to be defective in materials or workmanship.
REAR VENT MODIFICATION
In all Le Cache upright wine cabinets, the heat generated by the CellarPro cooling unit is ventilated through the top of the wine cabinet. Consequently, there must be sufficient clearance above the cabinet for the hot air to dissipate. For European Country Series wine cabinets, you'll need 13 inches of clearance above the cabinet. See the table below for minimum ceiling heights. With the proper overhead clearance, the wine cabinet can be placed flush against the wall behind it.
|European Country Series
If you don't have the minimum required ceiling height above your wine cabinet, Le Cache can solve the problem by modifying the cabinet before it is shipped so that the air intake will come from behind (instead of above) the wine cabinet. Please note that, under this scenario, you will no longer be able to place the cabinet flush against the wall. Instead, the wine cabinet will need 3-4 inches of clearance from the wall behind and at least 8-9 inches from the ceiling above the wine cabinet.
In all cases, the space above and to the sides of the wine cabinet must be unobstructed - i.e., the sides and front of the wine cabinet must be open. In addition, the wine cabinet must be placed in a space that is properly ventilated. The cabinet cannot be placed in an alcove, closet or built-in space unless an exhaust system is installed to evacuate the hot air generated by the cooling unit. In addition, access to the top of the wine cabinet is necessary to allow for periodic cleaning of the coils.

|Comments:||Le Cache Mission 1400 172-Bottle Wine Cellar - Provincial Cherry|
I am very impressed by the attractive appearance and quality of the wine cabinet. Several of my friends have also been impressed.
The balance and leveling of the unit is very good. The noise level is about what I expected based on the literature. The doors did not need to be adjusted after removal from the shipping pallet. That was a pleasant surprise.
There were a couple of negative items. First the unit does not hold 172 bottles. After reading the manual and recommendations for the unit, it holds 150 bottles. Also the unit (after reaching temperature, cycles cooling more than I believe it should; several times per hour.
When I first ordered the unit I asked about a bottle temperature probe. The sales man knew nothing of this but said he would investigate. When I asked later he had no update. Upon reading the manual that came with the unit, I found the manufacture offered a bottle probe option and my cooling unit supported it. I then ordered it from the manufacture. Once I installed it, the cooling cycling issue became a non issue.
There was also an issue with the door lock. With the guidance of a locksmith, I was able to get it fixed and it is useful. I do not believe the manufacture ever tested the lock to verify its functionality.
The shipper was not trained in the installation of the unit. The manual stated it should take 30 minutes and it took two hours. It does take two people minimum to install the unit. I have a 1400 model, one of the smaller units. The shipper was only partially prepared for the installation. They had no level, screw driver, etc. for final installation. I paid for this option. It was advertised as trained personnel for installation. They installers were good guys but had never installed or been trained for wine cooler installations.
All issues listed above were resolved and the unit is working as planned and expected. I would recommend this unit to my friends and family. I would highly recommend a bottle temperature probe for the unit.
|Bottom Line:||I would recommend this product.|
