Another hotel behemoth, with Bordeaux verticals galore, deep and incisive Burgundy domaines and shimmering New World names.

REVIEWS

Review 2016/17

Its Burgundy selection is deep and incisive, with plenty of Domaine Leflaive to pile into, alongside shimmering New World listings like Grosset’s Rieslings from the Clare Valley. Dessert listings are plentiful, with by-the-glass selections including Château Lafaurie- Peyraguey 2005. Be warned, however: the wallet needs to be fat, with some of the mark- ups looking particularly punchy.

The Michelin-starred reataurant is housed in a grandiose dining hall, with plush interiors and crisp tablecloths, naturally illuminated by its domed ceiling, and softly lit by chandeliers in the evening. At the helm is decorated head chef Éric Fréchon, who is also executive chef at the Michelin-starred Le Bristol in Paris, and executive chef Florian Favario.
