  • English
    • Located in the very heart of Saint-Émilion, Clos des Menuts has superb medieval monolithic cellars-among the most beautiful in the village-at a constant temperature of 12°. There reigns a “religiosity” conducive to the aging of these great wines in oak barrels. They are dotted with old medieval grain silos, which constitute a very popular stopover for the many visitors to the medieval city. The cellars can be visited and a reception and tasting room is open all year round to the delight of wine lovers. You will have the opportunity to taste our estate wines.

      Clos des Menuts is both a fine and full-bodied wine, with a rich and delicate sap, and superb length on the palate. From the first years, the complex aromas of vanilla and blackcurrant develop pleasantly. After longer aging, a subtle bouquet dominates, where power and finesse combine. Like any grand cru from Saint-Émilion, it should be tasted at a temperature of around 18°.

    You can go to their big cellar to see their collection of wines from 1959 til 2019. You will walk in alone with no guide. Can be quite eerie and dark.

    Very enjoyable self-guided of Clos des Menus' incredible underground caves and and storage area for many of their Grand Crus vintages. I came in on the recommendation of a producer and vintner which I spoke to previously who spoke very highly of CdM specifically. The shop above would not let me taste or try any wines without buying the whole bottles unfortunately... not sure why this was exactly as the signage all states that degustations are offered (?!?), however still a good visit and range available in the shop.
