Cheval Blanc Courchevel has been awarded a third star by the Michelin Guide at signature restaurant Le 1947, headed by Yannick Alléno.
This third star honours the work and bold creativity of Alléno and the team of Cheval Blanc Courchevel.
Since Alléno’s 2008 arrival to Le 1947, he has executed a cuisine in which flavours and taste are at the heart of every dish.
He takes further inspiration from the diversity of local Savoie ingredients to refine his menu.
For example, a signature dish of the season featured bone marrow roasted pike with black pepper and vin Jaune, gathering the essence of the region’s lakes and winter markets.
Alléno said: “I feel an immense joy and I thank the Michelin Guide for the support it shows us with this new distinction.
“The restaurant is a marvellous setting; it is truly up there where modern sauces are born.
“I am delighted for Monsieur Arnault, with whom our group shares his fundamental values of excellence and creativity.”
Cheval Blanc Courchevel is a contemporary ski-in ski-out Maison, set in the prestigious Jardin Alpin of Courchevel 1850, with direct access to the world’s largest ski domain, Les Trois Vallées.
Olivier Lefebvre, president of Cheval Blanc Courchevel, added: “We are honoured to have been bestowed with this award, recognising our ten year quest for excellence and innovation.
“We share this joy with Yannick Alléno and the teams of Cheval Blanc Courchevel, who we warmly thank for their efforts and commitment.”
