Restaurant - 2 Michelin stars
In the main 17th-century building you find an initial subdued and cozy room followed by a second modern extension designed by Mario Botta, fitting perfectly within the peaceful vine landscape. A total of 130 m2 in size with a capacity of 40 covers, the restaurant’s splendor unfolds: the ceiling is decorated with a hundred and twenty Semillon leaves in gleaming gold crystal, and other iconic Lalique pieces stand on console tables.

Benefitting greatly from Lalique’s refinement and expertise, the table decorations boast a thousand subtleties: a symphony of crystal and porcelain, tassels, and carefully chosen flowers. The beautifully dressed tables are first of all a feast for the eyes: tablecloths in noble fabrics, glasses, decanters, and door handles from the 100 Points range designed by the wine critic James Suckling. Customers will also discover other creations from the famous crystal works, made for the hotel restaurant with its major partners: Fürstenberg porcelain plates, Christofle napkin rings incrusted with ‘grape’ crystal pieces, and Peugeot Saveurs salt and pepper shakers, perfect replicas of the ones co-created by René Lalique and Peugeot in 1924. The chairs and furniture are also decorated with crystal inlay.
The spirit of the menu
For this summer, the chef and his team prepared two separate menus. Le Terroir du Sauternais menu in four, or five courses of your choice (vegetarian menu) and Le Grain Noble menu in four, or five courses of your choice.
After earning a second Michelin star in March 2022 for Restaurant LALIQUE in the Sauternes wine region, a mere three years after the establishment earned its first star, Jérôme Schilling continues to rise among the elite of French gastronomy. His most recent distinction is that of Meilleur Ouvrier de France 2023 (Best Craftsman of France) in the “Cuisine, Gastronomy” category.
The “culinarian of the vine” named Meilleur Ouvrier de France 2023
Jérôme Schilling is aiming to turn traditional on its head and experiment with different ways of using Sauternes: infusion, maceration, fermentation, crystallization, poaching. Everything provides inspiration: grape must, wine lees, vine shoots. The richer and more complex the wine, the greater the possibilities for combinations: ‘It is all about bringing out the qualities of Sauternes in precise gastronomic pairings, enhancing its aromas, highlighting its various shades and playing with textures’. A true “culinarian of the vine,” he feeds his creativity by integrating the many facets and components of the Sauternes region into his cuisine. After earning a second star from the Michelin Guide in 2022, Jérôme Schilling is named Meilleur Ouvrier de France* 2023. Wine serves as a condiment, a mixer, or on ice. The head sommelier revisits the menu every season. The same ambitions apply to desserts. The head pastry chef is seeking to pair his sweet creations with Sauternes wine: freshness, seasoning, and deconstruction. The desserts and petit fours also evolve with the seasons. All in all, a modern, sensitive and delicate cuisine.
