Château Cordeillan Bages Pauillac

Château Cordeillan Bages

In a beautiful vineyard setting in the heart of the Medoc and on the outskirts of Pauillac, Château Cordeillan-Bages is an attractive 17th century mansion converted into a hotel and restaurant, a member of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux. The delicate touch and imagination of Jean Luc Rocha's cuisine makes every meal at Cordeillan-Bages an unforgettable experience.

The reception rooms and lounges are warm and inviting with a very traditional atmosphere gracefully blending with the contemporary furnishings and style of the dining room and bedrooms.

Bedrooms are spacious with an elegant decor and harmonious colour palette - perfect for unwinding after a day in the fresh air of the Gironde. Why not take advantage of the sauna, or perhaps the fitness room, then take a dip in the pool or treat yourself to a relaxing massage.


Before taking over at Cordeillan-Bages in 2010, Jean-Luc Rocha trained under two great French chefs, both double-starred, Patrick Henriroux at La Pyramide in Vienne and Thierry Marx at Cordeillan-Bages. The quality of his work earned him the coveted title of Meilleur Ouvrier de France in 2007 and propelled him into the culinary limelight of France's leading establishments. Very much a product of the modern school of French cuisine, he is always keen to push boundaries whilst setting very high standards. His expertise combines technique with tradition and a reliance on rigorous technical skill and a thorough knowledge of his art. The delicious result is a convivial blend of no-nonsense, balanced cuisine to which he succeeds in adding a touch of fantasy and sophistication.
