Baumanière, Relais & Châteaux*****, a landmark luxury hotel and L’Oustau de Baumanière, a great French dining destination, have been playing host to discriminating gourmets and world-renowned figures for over seventy years.
Chef-owner Jean-André Charial was persuaded into the profession by the hotel’s founder, his grandfather Raymond Thuiller, after working with some of the greatest chefs in France. Breton chef Glenn Viel, his right-hand man since 2015, was nominated “Chef of Tomorrow 2018” by Gault & Millau.
Three years ago, the team was joined by chef pâtissier Brandon Dehan, voted Young Pastry Chef 2019 by Gault & Millau. Last year, chef sommelier Alain Gousse joined the team, supervising the cellars of L’Oustau de Baumanière which contain a treasure-trove of sixty thousand bottles of the best wines from our Regions.
