COMO Le Montrachet Looks Like Pure Provincial Luxury In The Heart Of Burgundy

Hotel le Montrachet, a historic 19th-century property in the heart of Burgundy, will become The COMO Group’s first-ever hotel in France following its reopening as COMO Le Montrachet on April 15, 2023.

Considering the fantastic job COMO has done with the sun-coloured Tuscan castle now known as COMO Castello Del Nero (you can read our full review of the resort here), the group’s French debut should be well-received for luxury travellers heading over to one of France’s most prestigious wine regions.

Having stayed at the group’s only Italian property, I can personally attest to COMO’s curatorial touch, especially regarding hotel amenities and service. The food and spa in particular are standouts at COMO Castello Del Nero so it’s promising that the group is focusing on “gastronomy, hospitality and style” for COMO Le Montrachet. Of course, this should also mean plenty of deeply complex Burgundy reds to sip through while you relax in any of the 30 individual rooms and suites that make up the boutique ‘place du village’ Inn, which is located in the village of Puligny-Montrachet.

The hotel, comprised of three heritage buildings arranged around the village square, is a stone’s throw from Le Montrachet vineyard with each redesigned by Paola Navone, who was the lead designer for COMO Castello Del Nero.

Oenophiles should be paying attention to the opening as the property is surrounded by some of the most renowned vineyards in the world, including four Grand Cru vineyards and 17 Premier Cru vineyards dotted around neighbouring villages Chassagne-Montrachet, Meursault, Volnay and Pommard. Tours of nearby vineyards will be led by the hotel’s resident sommelier, Andre Berthier, with private wine tastings planned as well as numerous workshops.

Much like the Italian property, there’s also scope to have reception book you into hot air balloon rides over the vineyards, bicycle tours, hikes and French cooking classes.

COMO Le Montrachet opens on April 15, 2023. The boutique hotel is a 1.5-hour drive from Lyon and a 40-minute drive from the private airport of Dijon. If you’re coming from Paris, it’s best to get a 1.5-hour high-speed TGV train to nearby Le Creusot.

Once the property opens we’ll be updating this piece with photos of the rooms and amenities, but for now you can take a brief look at the provincial aesthetic one can expect when heading on over to COMO Le Montrachet.

Pre-opening rates at COMO Le Montrachet start from €425 (AU$688) per night for bookings made before May 30, 2023.
