Relais Bernard Loiseau, Burgundy

Hotel. Le Relais Bernard Loiseau is an oasis of gastronomy and opulent living in the idyllic setting of Burgundy. Close to the Chablis winemaking region and the Morvan, the vineyards surrounding Le Relais Bernard Loiseau have greatly influenced its existence. Each detail of your stay at this hotel will exude relaxation and luxury of the highest quality. The stunning estate includes a spa, beauty salon, boutique, swimming pool and beautiful, sprawling gardens. But of course following the legacy of Bernard Loiseau, the hotel’s cuisine is paramount.

Wine. As one of the best cellar hotels in Burgundy, it is no wonder that one of the best sommeliers in the world tends to the bottles. Cellarmaster Eric Goettelmann, who has worked at Le Relais Bernard Loiseau for seven years, has combed through countless varieties and vintages to create a wine list that will blow your mind. Composed of over 20,000 vineyard-bottled wines and 1,000 different varieties, the hotel’s wine cellars are home to the cream of the crop of wines. If you plan ahead, Mr. Goettelmann will prepare an out-of-this-world tasting experience and leave behind his highest recommendations that are specifically catered to your own personal likes and dislikes. Aside from the cellars, the hotel’s location in the heart of Burgundy furthers your wine education by allowing access to various vineyards and winemaking regions.

Dining. At the passing of legendary master chef Bernard Loiseau, his protégé, Patrick Bertron, promised to continue his legacy and preserve his excellence. The restaurant at Le Relais Bernard Loiseau has since evolved with Patrick. Although Bertron’s own unique style shines through these complex dishes, the traditional delicacies of Loiseau’s recipes are constants. Staying true to both the Loiseau legacy and the integrity of fresh ingredients, the restaurant has proven to be an absolute delight.
