Château Cordeillan-Bages

PAUILLAC, FRANCE

“Stayed here for two nights with my wife as an anniversary gift – really a first class experience. The hotel knew we were coming for a special visit and had a wonderful bottle of 2005 Lynch-Bages waiting for us in the room. We stayed in one of the superior grade rooms with a terrace, which was a real pleasure – loved enjoying our bottle out there, overlooking the gardens. The staff throughout the hotel was incredibly accommodating, top-notch. One of my favorite aspects of the hotel is its location, just a few miles away from some of the best cháteaux and wine estates in the region. My insider tip? Contact Ronald Rens at The Bordeaux Wine Experience who will arrange a custom tour of the many famous and lesser-known Bordeaux wineries. Just excellent!”

Great for
Oenophiles and foodies. This is an ideal base for exploring the nearby world-famous wineries.

With whom
While the hotel is kid-friendly, this is not the place to bring the family. Go with a wine-loving partner or friend instead.

Memorable moment
Dinner at the hotel’s 2 Michelin-starred restaurant (which is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays FYI) was unforgettable. To be spoiled by superb food, an excellent wine list and faultless service was absolutely the most enjoyable moment of our stay. Still thinking about that meal.

Best time to go
Spring and summertime. The property is closed from November through mid-March.

Be aware
The interior is funky – cookie-cutter and modern – doesn’t match the exterior and region at all, but I got over it. Might surprise you if you’re expecting a 17th Century Château though.

Price
$260 - $1,110 a night.
