Why we love it...

Perfect location for famed wine area

The Place

The centre of Puligny-Montrachet, place du Pasquier de la Fontaine, is laid to grass and surrounded by chestnut trees and by the outlets of local wine-growers. The handsome stone-built hotel overlooks the square, and though the interior lacks character, and (we thought) is priced somewhat on the high side, it makes a useful stopover while touring the vineyards. Opened in the 1980s, it is furnished in a smart though rather functional way, with unexciting fabrics and furniture.  The rooms are less simple than they used to be, with colourful walls and furniture, but there’s still a formulaic feel and nothing personalised about them. 22 rooms are located in the main building, the others in a separate building across the street.

The spacious, calm restaurant, serving local specialities, has a Michelin star.  Two sommeliers offer knowledgable advice on the extensive wine list, which includes over 30 references to Montrachet vintages alone, and the cellar has over 20,000 bottles. In summer you can sit on the pretty front terrace. Breakfast is worth mentioning, with squeezed orange juice, dried figs and dates, local yoghurts and breads. See also Hôtel La Choquette (same owner).
