The hotel seems to be secondary to the wine business run bu the Leflaive dynasty for 18 generations spanning 340 years, so we were informed. It is perfectly sited in a village next to Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet, where the finest chardonnays in the world are produced. Our first room offer was dank and a little rank, possibly as a result of recent heavy rain but we were relocated to a largish room at the rear - no elevator access with an outlook over the roof tops of the village. Fortunately, the hotel was holding a tasting dinner that evening into which we happily booked, keen to taste the local white wines - all Chardonnay from "Villages" to Batardes - 10 wines from the three adjoining villages with an explanation of each. The food itself was slightly dry chicken, but that was not the real point of the tasting dinner, i.e., tasting. It was one on one explanation with the ability to quiz the wine maker on all things. A great experience. Although the breakfast was reasonable rather than special, the total experience was special, surrounded by vineyards and "Caves" in the quaint village lying in the heart of a world leading wine producing area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The building dates from the 17th century, nestling at the heart of the village of Puligny-Montrachet. An interior garden and a spacious lounge are invitations to draw corks and taste. But what really defines the character of the place are the 13 spacious, light-filled bedrooms. These have been designed as intimate, comfortable spaces, where flat-screen TV, internet-access, DVD-players, air-conditioning and inside shutters are standard.One might choose a documentary about a famous, local wine, or from the wide choice available. ... more less
