The Beau-Rivage Palace has placed Anne-Sophie Pic at the helm of the kitchens of its fine-dining restaurant. While continuing to preside over her restaurant in Valence (France), the three-star Michelin chef has entrusted the realization of her creations to Kevin Gatin. The restaurant has been awarded two stars in the Michelin guide and 18/20 in the Gault Millau. With a list of over 3000 labels and 75,000 carefully aged wines, the cellar of the Beau-Rivage Palace is indisputably one of the largest in Europe.


“The different pairings were really interesting and glad to compare wines from two very different areas of Tuscany.”
