Château Le Pape
Constructed by master sailmaker Pierre Bobineau in 1805, the charming Château Le Pape has a rich history and heritage of its own, home to many artists and painters over the past two centuries. Robert G. Wilmers purchased Le Pape in 2012 for the quality of the vineyard, the elegance of the architecture and for its sublime, secluded location. 2015 marked the completion of a significant renovation of the chateau, its guestrooms and gardens and the beginning of a new chapter in luxury hospitality.

Each day, our chef challenges himself to think beyond his own craft and to draw inspiration from the widest possible sources. For him, the best ideas can come from anywhere, at any time. The challenge is to channel abstract concepts, originality and meaning into his food.
Born in La Rochelle, Maxime Pommier began his career on the Atlantic coast, where he learned to prepare fish. Passionate about haute gastronomy, he returned to study and continued his apprenticeship at the Hotel de Paris in Monaco, before rising to renowned starred restaurants: the Burgundy in Paris and Garopapilles in Bordeaux.
Maxime joined Haut-Bailly in September 2021. He offers a cuisine that favours local products, both classic and innovative, in line with the spirit of the estate. The combinations he creates and the pairings bring an extra dimension to the wines of Haut-Bailly.
