Château Les Roches
The Location: Originally built in 1901 for the mistress of a Parisian judge, and reopened as an inn in 2005, Les Roches’s grand, three-story mansion sits in the medieval hilltop village of Mont-Saint-Jean. Filled with ancient stone buildings, crumbling châteaux, and winding cobblestoned streets, the hamlet is set in north-central Burgundy and surrounded by some of the world’s oldest and most celebrated vineyards.
Don’t Miss: Immersing yourself in the region’s vaunted wines. The heart of Burgundy’s terroir is a 45-minute drive north; but Les Roches’s proprietors also host tasting functions (as well as lavish evening meals) in the property’s wine cellar.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
