A French hotel for all lovers of fine wine

La Maison d’Estournel, a boutique hotel located in the home of Cos d’Estournel’s original founder, is set to open this northern summer in the Bordeaux vineyards.

The home of Louis Gaspard d’Estournel in the 19th century, Château Pomys is located next to the St Estèphe property and was already a hotel - Chateau Hotel Pomys - when acquired by Cos d’Estournel’s current owner, Michel Reybier, in 2017.

Due to reopen this summer, the refurbished hotel, surrounded by vines and the estate’s parkland, boasts 14 rooms, a restaurant, library and tasting room, Drinks Business reports.

Reybier owns a number of other hotels and spas and the acquisition of Château Pomys was hinted at at the time and more explicitly stated now as a “complement” to the Cos d’Estournel brand.

The wine produced at Cos d'Estournel was classified as one of fifteen Deuxièmes Crus (Second Growths) in the original Bordeaux Wine Classification of 1855. 

Several Bordeaux estates now own and operate boutique hotels and restaurants on or near their main properties as wine tourism gains popularity in what was previously a very conservative region.
