Le Côte Saint Jacques, Burgundy

Hotel. In the heart of a small town on the Yonne River, famed chef Jean-Michel Lorain’s epicenter of exceptional cuisine, Le Côte Saint Jacques, awaits your arrival. Snuggled up on the banks of the river, the rooms overlook the beautiful Burgundy region of France and the property’s exquisite gardens. Jean-Michel Lorain and the personable staff members devote themselves to making your stay the most luxurious while still maintaining distance to ensure an intimate experience. Between the private boat tours, cooking classes, vineyard tours, spa and 3-starred (Michelin) restaurant, Le Côte Saint Jacques has created a haven for food lovers looking to sit back, relax, and enjoy life.

Wine. To truly make a memorable meal in the gastronomic tradition, wine must be complementary to the chef’s creation. Therefore, Jean-Michel Lorain has surrounded himself with wine stewards that have combed through the best wine regions of the world to come up with a wine list and cellar filled with 800 diverse labels that all have high quality in common. Although guests of the hotel can explore the cellar below, Le Côte Saint Jacques is completely surrounded by villages and vineyards of Burgundy that date back as far as the 4th century A.D. Today the Chablis, Beaune and Côte de Nuits regions cultivate some of the best labels in France.

Dining. With 3 stars from the Michelin Guide, there is no doubt that Jean-Michel Lorain’s cuisine is absolutely paramount. Despite emerging from a family of cooks, Jean-Michel has honed his own skills by focusing on the power of each ingredient. In effect, he has become one of the most acclaimed and praised gastronomic chefs of this generation. During a stay at Le Côte Saint Jacques you must reserve a table in one of the dining rooms facing the river in order to have the privilege of experiencing these heavenly plates.
