For many decades, the Château de Chambert has listened to a powerful presence, which makes us live and which makes us feel many emotions: nature.

It is in the service of the latter that we submit ourselves every day thanks to biodynamic agriculture and numerous avant-garde techniques, and it is this which dictates the culinary journey of your Chef: Vincent FLAVIGNY. The wine list is by Lin Liu and Philippe Lejeune, and your scenic/architecture experience at chambert is from Toulouse architect Stephane Deligny.

By Chef Vincent Flavigny

The Culinary Escape

Chef Vincent Flavigny is from the Lot. It is out of Passion and Respect for the customer that he chose the path of gastronomy.

He traveled for more than 10 years with his backpack, non-stop, from Europe to Oceania via Asia, Africa and the Americas. From these trips he received many inspirations from large prestigious establishments, as well as from experiencing the excitement of street vendors and from small traditional and family kitchens in all the countries he traveled through. It is through these flavours of the world and local practices, respectful of biodiversity and the environment, that Vincent perfected his culinary career and became a craftsman of multi-cultural excellence.

Vincent likes to travel and meet people. He has a permanent thirst for discovery. His cuisine in Chambert will evolve to reflect his travels and encounters. He will make you discover different gastronomic sensibilities, new flavors, all favoring locally produced ingredients.

Why did Vincent return to his native region? Simply because the Lot is a preserved niche, with a very high food biodiversity. It is around the paths of castine, the causses, this magnificent river that is the Lot or in his own garden in the middle of the vineyards of Chambert that Vincent will make you discover this world of flavours, in alchemy with gastronomic gems unearthed during his travels.

After many countries visited, Vincent then landed at the Château de Chambert, in total coherence with the environmental and excellence course undertaken by the winery for now more than 15 years.

Cooking and Inspiration

It is in the service of mother nature that Vincent submits his inspirations and it is she who imposes his seasonal products. The Chef plays a score guided by nature, with a certain restraint and modernity.

It is through a natural, ethical and sincere cuisine that you will discover a unique world. You will travel the world with menus in 4, 6 or 9 courses, an attempt to reconnect the human to the living world.

You can discover his culinary journeys (excluding drinks):
The Lunch Escape in 4 courses at 44€ (all lunch services)
The Adventure in 6 bites at 58€
The Pilgrimage In 8 bites at 79€ (Friday evenings)

It is products that respect the environment, food biodiversity and mainly from our fields, our forests, our rivers or our causses that will end in your plate, enhanced by flavours from around the world, original ingredients of which only the chef has the secret. You will (re)discover them with emotion and humility.


Wine list from Lin Liu, Master Of Wine (MW)

This gastronomic journey will be made of excellent food and wine pairings, either by the glass or by the bottle. The wine list is selected by Lin Liu, Master of Wine and in total harmony with our philosophy based on quality and respect for the environment.

The Master of Wine (MW) degree is one of the most prestigious and ambitious titles in the world of wine. To obtain it is to conclude years of efforts to integrate this very demanding circle of 419 members to date. This circle makes up the world's wine elite and advises the largest international institutions.

Lin is from Hangzhou in China and became a Master of Wine in 2020. She advises major institutions around the world. She is also a specialist about the Cahors appellation, her Master of Wine final paper related to the Cahors AOC and the key to a successful classification of the Cahors vineyard.

The wines of Château de Chambert are naturally present, from certified biodynamic agriculture and made by a team of real enthusiasts including Stéphane Derenoncourt and directed by Philippe Lejeune, the local winemaker.

The place,
by Stephane Deligny

This sensory journey out of time is also done with and outside the existing traditional space, thanks to Stephane Deligny, the architect behind all the work of the Château de Chambert.

Author of the first rehabilitations and extensions, this artist-painter of the landscape and, “architect-farmer”, as he likes to describe himself, was also a winegrower of natural wines in Cahors. And it is also naturally that Stéphane's work is in total coherence with Chambert's DNA in the relationship he inscribes in his works, between the terroir and the view of architecture. He proportions the intervention of the architect in the site, with restraint and enthusiasm, as the winemaker can do in the expression of the wine.

Nature is the central pillar of an architecture that respects its terroir, present and happy to accompany the incredible landscape of the Château de Chambert.

His parallel work in painting and sculpture, on mental images allows him to have a more sensitive approach, of the order of feelings, of pure emotion, in total harmony with the landscape.

He designed the restaurant's kitchen open to the dining room, where you will be in direct interaction with the Chef and his teams in order to live an exceptional experience. On the terrace side, a splendid view of an endless ocean of verdant vines leaves you in a state of constant contemplation.
