3 Night Accommodations in Burgundy with Jean-Charles Boisset
Two couples will live the high life and stay at the most storied palace in Paris, Hotel Le Bristol with their host, Jean-Charles Boisset. With over 250 years of history, this five-star hotel situated on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré has hosted the rich and powerful, both famous and notorious, for decades and is where the Woody Allen movie “Midnight in Paris” was filmed. Service is what this hotel is known for, and their team has remained at the disposal of every guest, where no demand is deemed too much, and each person is treated with efficiency, kindness, and discretion.
Spend three nights in the lap of luxury in one of seven Signature Suites, where presidents, celebrities, and heads of state have called home while visiting Paris. Take in sweeping views of the city’s monuments while enjoying a complimentary daily breakfast and prepare yourself to see the sights and shop the finest boutiques in the world….they’re all located right outside your doorstep. Relax and recover from your flight with a La Prairie Caviar Facial at the incredible spa. Jump into your chauffeur-driven car for an extremely rare, after-hours tour of the Louvre with a private guide and finish your day with an exquisite, multi-course tasting dinner with wine at Épicure, their most incredible gastronomic restaurant and one of 10 restaurants in Paris with a three star Michelin rating. Jean-Charles has arranged a private tour at the Palace of Versailles courtesy of the Chief Architect of the Palace of Versailles – a once-in-a-lifetime, never publicly-available opportunity to see the grandest palace in the world in an intimate behind the scenes tour.
Following your Paris experience, Jean-Charles will personally escort you to the fabled Burgundy wine region, where Grand Cru vineyards, caves and glorious dining await you in the most historic wine region in France – the birthplace of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, where more than 1,000 years ago monks and nuns defined the importance of terroir. As Burgundy’s leading vintner, Jean-Charles will escort you through private tours and tastings at his family’s famed domains, including Domaine de la Vougeraie – the family’s crown jewel estate, boasting more than 200 acres of vineyards in the Côte d’Or; Jean-Claude Boisset – housed in a thirteenth century convent recently reconstructed by the Chief Architect of the Palace of Versailles to be the most ambitious and extraordinary winery in Burgundy; Bouchard Aîné in the historic heart of Beaune; Jaffelin – a 12th century cave beneath the cathedral in Beaune; and Ropiteau – the charming Mersault producer dating to 1848. While you are there, Jean-Charles will also arrange for private tours and tastings at many of Burgundy’s best sites, including the Museum of Wine and a tour of the Hospices de Beaune, a tour of the famed Clos de Vougeot, dinner in the historic caves of his famed estates as well as lunches and dinner at the region’s premier Michelin-starred restaurants. Airfare not included. Date restricted, January 24-27, 2016.
