Nestled among the vines of an iconic wine estate, Lae Chartreuse is the private residence of the owner.
With six bedrooms and two suites, it offers all the warmth and discreet elegance of a family retreat. Staying at La Bordelaise means an exclusive opportunity to experience life on the estate from the inside.
Your every need will be attended to as you make yourself at home at La Bordelaise. Dive into the clear waters of the indoor pool or let your tensions melt away in the hammam. Enjoy a moment of utter relaxation basking in the sun’s rays on the patio overlooking the garden. In the evenings, relax before a roaring fire or partake in a delectable meal prepared especially for you by the private Chef.
For your most special occasions, the staff are on hand to organize the celebration of your choosing, be it a candlelit dinner, an evening of live chamber music or an extravagant fireworks display.
During your stay at La Bordelaise, go behind the scenes to experience life on the vineyard and get to know its wines intimately. As a special guest of the estate, you will be guided through the wine making process by the technical team. You will discover what makes the estate wine exceptional. Take part in the harvest or try your hand at wine-growing techniques, such as pruning in the Médoc fashion.
At the château, the breathtaking vat room awaits you. Renovated in 2008, it was the first in Bordeaux to be entirely based on the laws of gravity. As you taste the wines in the vats or while they are aging in the barrel, you will become privy to some of the deepest secrets of their wines and how they are made.
Your journey will culminate in an unforgettable tasting of some of the most remarkable vintages, carefully selected for you among the precious nectars ageing peacefully under the Pagodas of the estate.
