  • Superb chateau with BIO status for 5 years already, outstanding wine, stated as non harmful for the environment, with own barrel's workshop, beautiful outside territory and adorable inside furniture and design.
  • Simply beautiful place with superb wines. We visited after calling and discovering we needed to book for tours several weeks in advance. Not hard to see why. Stunning venue, beautiful landscape, just the way a chateau should be. We chose to do the entry level tasting at €20 per person. Well worth it. Wines very good indeed. Ended up buying on the way out and plan to buy more. We found the staff to be warm, courteous and very accommodating. Felt well looked after as we tasted in a delightful private room. Fine example of French wine and vineyard experiences done well.
