    Beautiful Chateau with a nice view on the vineyards. Our guide was a young and very friendly intern. Gave us a lot of information and insights. The wine tasting was exquisit. We tried a very nice white wine (recommend on buying a bottle or 2) and a more complex spicy red wine. To bad we couldn't go inside of the Chateau itself. Overall a really nice experience most of all due to the kindness of our guide!

    I highly recommend this castle! We had a private visit with the guide + a "dégustation" for 10€, it totally worth it! Initially the tour should be around 1 hour, it lasts 1 and a half hour for us. We tasted 2 wines : 1 red (10 years old) and 1 white (4 years old).
