Arnaud Donckele’s creative mastery ensures an unparalleled experience which combines exceptional cuisine and wines from around the world selected by the head sommelier. Each considered a blank canvas, dishes are painted with delicate and bold medleys.

In the evening, La Vague d’Or stages a ballet inspired by land and sea. As a virtuoso alchemist of flavors, conductor Arnaud Donckele orchestrates backstage conductors and Ambassadors on stage in a choreography full of poetry.

From the “Au fil du temps” menu which puts its timeless pieces in the spotlight to the “Epicurean Balade” menu dedicated to the most gourmets, he composes his plates like a concerto of emotions inspired by green hills, sea iodine the century-old history of the region.

Arnaud’s cuisine is a bucolic journey through the Mediterranean, celebrating the heritage anchored in the traditions of the region and always pushing the limits of his imagination. Subtle, daring, cradled by the Provençal sun, his philosophy of taste emphasizes the products, know-how, producers and artisans with whom he composes his creations.

Natural benevolence, attention to detail and homage to Provençal traditions, the Ambassadors of La Vague d’Or present a new art of culinary emotion, signed Cheval Blanc.

At the heart of the plate, at the source of flavors. Every detail is shaped, every story is chiseled. The Mediterranean flourishes through ingredients carefully selected by Arnaud, sun-kissed and cultivated with passion by the producers of the region.

From the German herbalist Bodo to the market gardener magician Yann Ménard and fishermen who love the sea, La Vague d’Or celebrates the jewels of nature as well as the artisans who sublimate it.
