Winemaker Michel Picard spent a decade and millions of dollars restoring this château in Chassagne-Montrachet from the 11th-century cellars up to the tiled roof. Opened in 2007, the one-of-a-kind B&B houses five suites, each spectacular in its own way. All have thick stone walls, modernist furniture (Mario Bellini's Cab armchair, Arne Jacobsen's Egg chair), original artwork, and neo-Baroque bathrooms designed by local artist Jean-Jacques Argueyrolles (two suites have pool-size sunken bathtubs). The billiard room, salons, and lounge areas are sometimes used for temporary art exhibits, but the pièce de résistance here is the glittering, climate-controlled tasting room. Picard, who got his start at age 14 selling wine from a cart, now owns 325 acres in Burgundy, including several Grand Cru and Premier Cru parcels: The winery's best vintages include Clos de Vougeot, Puligny-Montrachet Village, Chassagne-Montrachet Village en Pimont, and Corton Grand Cru Clos des Fiètres. A winery tour and tasting are included in the room rate; reserve a week ahead and you can do a tasting and catered lunch of rustic regional fare. Since there's no concierge, night porter, or room service, the posh premises feel more like a wealthy friend's home than a B&B: Once the staff leaves for the night, you and your fellow guests—often international wine connoisseurs—have the place to yourselves.—David Downie

Hotel open year-round; winery open Mondays to Saturdays 9 am to 6 pm for visits and tastings; lunch served March through November by reservation only.
