COMO Le Montrachet to Open on April 15, 2023

The COMO Group has announced that the newest addition to its global portfolio, COMO Le Montrachet, will open its doors on April 15, 2023. Situated in Burgundy, one of the world’s most prestigious wine regions, the hotel is a celebration of French gastronomy, hospitality and style. 

To create COMO Le Montrachet, COMO has redesigned Hotel le Montrachet, a 19th-century place du village inn located in Puligny-Montrachet, Burgundy. The hotel is housed across three heritage buildings arranged around the village square, which is just steps from the legendary Le Montrachet vineyard. For this project, the COMO Group has again collaborated with designer Paola Navone, who also designed COMO Castello del Nero in Tuscany. 

The 30-key hotel will be under the leadership of General Manager Florian Bonnin, while Executive Chef Romain Versino will oversee the menu, which will change with the seasons in order to best showcase the produce from local farmers and suppliers.

COMO Le Montrachet intends to be an ideal getaway for oenophiles. In addition to Le Montrachet, one of the most renowned vineyards in the world, four Grand Cru vineyards and 17 Premier Cru vineyards lie close to the hotel as well as the villages of Chassagne-Montrachet, Meursault, Volnay and Pommard. The hotel’s own sommelier, André Berthier, is available to take guests on private wine tastings and trips to local wineries. Guests can also enjoy wine-tasting workshops where they will visit a vineyard to learn about the vines and enjoy wine samplings in the vineyards with the sommelier or vintner. 

Burgundy also has much more to offer visitors than just fine wine and is a year-round destination. From cooking classes and bicycle tours to scenic hikes and hot air balloon rides over the vineyards, the region has something for everyone. Highlights include the local Beaune jazz and classical music festival in July and August, the period “vendange” in mid-August where the grapes are harvested, and the vivid change of colors in the vines in both Spring and Autumn are sights to behold. 

COMO Le Montrachet is easily accessible: The hotel is only a one-and-a-half-hour drive from Lyon or a 40-minute drive from the private airport of Dijon. From Paris, the hotel is a three-hour drive or is a one-and-a-half-hour train ride by the high-speed TGV train to Le Creusot.
