Domaine Clarence Dillon welcomes the opening of a new home in Paris’ Golden Triangle
To celebrate its 80th anniversary, Domaine Clarence Dillon, whose history has always been intimately bound up with fine wine and dining, set out to capture the philosophy, worldview and its unique blend of tradition and innovation, with the creation of its new Paris home: the Hotel Dillon. Located in the heart of Paris’s Golden Triangle, this exceptional 19th century mansion, fully restored, offers a world of charm and elegance.
The splendid residence hosts a Fine Wine shop, “La Cave du Chateau”, and a gourmet restaurant “Le Clarence”.
A talented duo: Christophe Pele, managing director and Executive Chef, and Antoine Petrus, restaurant manager and Chef Sommelier, add a contemporary touch to the classic French cuisine and service.
Located both on the ground floor and within the cellars of the Hotel Dillon, “La Cave du Chateau” is an elegant boutique of fine wines, replete with exceptional bottles. This mecca for discerning wine lovers, which prides itself on being able to satisfy its clients’ every wish, is a genuine treasure trove, including not only precious vintages from the vineyards of Domaine Clarence Dillon, but also a hand-picked selection of the finest grand crus and spirits produced in France.
Created in 1935, the family-owned and managed company, Domaine Clarence Dillon, has the unique privilege of producing five rare and exceptional estate wines: two red wines and two white wines from First Growth, Chateau Haut-Brion and its sibling Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion. Since the 2011 vintage, the company is also proud to represent one of the finest wines from Saint Emilion: Chateau Quintus.
In 2005, the company created the Bordeaux Fine Wine Merchant, Clarence Dillon Wines, which has become one of the most important Fine Wine Merchants in Bordeaux, and launched Clarendelle, “Inspired by Haut-Brion”, Bordeaux’s first super premium luxury brand wine, thus testifying to the far-sighted spirit that has characterized Domaine Clarence Dillon from the onset.
As wardens of three mythical Estates, steeped in close to two millennia of history, the family company strives to have this deep heritage reflected in all of the wines produced under its name. Domaine Clarence Dillon combines tradition with innovation in order to extract the quintessence of an exceptional terroir and produce comprehensive families of authentic wines that are defined by their complexity and elegance.
On November 17th 2015, Domaine Clarence Dillon’s scope of activities broadens with the creation of two new companies, both based in the Hotel Dillon, an elegant “Hotel Particulier” (private mansion) located at 31, avenue Franklin D. Roosevelt in Paris, just opposite Le Grand Palais, and only metres from Les Champs Elysees. This beautiful mansion gives visitors a chance to discover the world and culture of Domaine Clarence Dillon thanks to its gourmet restaurant, “Le Clarence”, and “La Cave du Chateau” wine shop that features a wide selection of wines sourced exclusively from the greatest terroirs of France.
