Are you looking for a 5-star wine tasting experience in the Bordeaux region of France? Pauillac, France is a prime home base, and the perfect 5-star accommodations can be found at Chateau Cordeillan Bages, www.cordeillanbages.com, one of Relais & Chateau’s finest.
This is one of the loveliest 17th century estates and ideally located in the Haut Medoc vineyards. Just a short ride to some of the exceptional wineries like Chateau Lynches Bages (next door) Chateau Pichon Longueville and Chateau Lafite Rothschild.
This was our home base during the Marathon du Medoc and it worked out perfectly. The staff at the chateau was very gracious and friendly. They anticipated people’s needs during and after the race. If you needed a shirt pressed they made it happen within the hour.
The tall-ceilings and spacious rooms were well appointed, very chic classique-moderne and comfortable. The pool was lovely way to relax after a long run or a day of wine tasting.
They have bicycles for those who prefer to explore the countryside on two wheels, and one of the best rated Zagat / Michelin Star restaurants, with cuisine designed by master chef Jean-Luc Rocha. The cuisine is artfully presented and absolutely delicious.
Chateau Cordeillan Bages lived up to its reputation for creating a truly memorable experience in Medoc. The staff is gracious, the accommodations first-class, and the ambience in the hotel, the rooms, and the restaurant are exquisite.
If you’re looking for a Chateau in the Pauillac area, this is a wonderful place to stay!
