Recognised as a Top Performing hotel and restaurant as Reviewed by Travellers on the World's Largest Travel Site.


Puligny-Montrachet, Burgundy, France - Friday, January 1st, 2016 - The hotel Le Montrachet today announced that it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award. The accolade, which honours hospitality excellence, is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor, and is extended to qualifying businesses worldwide.  Establishments awarded the Certificate of Excellence are located all over the world and represent the upper echelon of businesses listed on the website.

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees that takes into account reviews ratings.  Businesses must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, volume and recency of reviews. Additional criteria include a business' tenure and popularity ranking on the site.

"Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is a true source of pride for the entire team at Le Montrachet and we'd like to thank all of our past guests who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor," said Jean-Christophe Lioret, Hospitality Manager at Le Montrachet. "There is no greater seal of approval than being recognised by one's customers. With the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence based on customer reviews, the accolade is a remarkable vote of confidence to our business and our continued commitment to excellence."

"TripAdvisor is pleased to honour exceptional hospitality businesses, as Le Montrachet, for consistent excellence," said Marc Charron, President of TripAdvisor for Business. "The Certificate of Excellence award gives top performing establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most - their customers. From Australia to Zimbabwe, we want to applaud exceptional hospitality businesses for offering TripAdvisor travellers a great customer experience."


About Le Montrachet
et in a famous Burgundy wine-producing village in the heart of the Côte de Beaune, Le Montrachet is the gateway to all the pleasures of an exceptional region.

In an incomparable setting, Le Montrachet offers you a genuine Burgundian experience: outstanding wines, authentic cuisine, warmth and expertise. Just a few kilometres from Beaune and its famous Hospices and also close to numerous wineries well known to lovers of Burgundy wine the world over. 

Le Montrachet has a 4 star classification. The bedrooms, renovated between 2010 and 2014, are arranged in three levels in reference to the hierarchy of Burgundy wines, 'Village', 'Premier cru' and 'Grand cru'. They are all quiet and have been thoughtfully decorated. All are equipped with quality bed linen and benefit from considerate service.

As of 2013, Le Montrachet also includes the exceptionally well-appointed 'Villa Christine'. A bourgeois house a few steps away from the hotel (but still on the village square); an exclusive setting with its beautiful facade and large garden. Guests there have the use of two 60m2 suites and a 30m2 bedroom.

Le Montrachet proposes a cuisine that is both delicious and refined. The chef, Luc Filoé, is very much in line with the grand tradition of Burgundian gastronomy. Dishes which are made to accompany the best bottles from the region's vineyards.

Luc Filoé, chef, goes straight to the heart of things. The cuisine he adheres to is refined, rigorous and spontaneous. 'I love a dish where the ingredients are shown off to their best advantage. There shouldn't be more than 3 or 4 flavours in a dish. If not, one's senses become overwhelmed and it's important to know what one's eating,' says the chef. He takes immense pleasure in working with local and regional products. For example Charolais beef, Bresse chicken or pike-perch from the Saône. His excellent relationship with an organic vegetable producer in Beaune guarantees a supply of a wide variety of fresh, tasty vegetables.
