We had a wonderful stopover here 2 years ago and were eagerly anticipating our return visit. The Chateau is beautiful and the garden stunning and the the welcome warm. However service was very slow for our pre-dinner drinks on the terrace. We upgraded to the Menu de Marquis (110Euros) but although my husband was less critical, I was disappointed overall with the food which I felt had some ill conceived combinations. The lobster was delicious for example but I felt did not work at all with the tabbouleh, the lemon sorbet was at odds with the creamy caramel it accompanied. I also felt that the food was just over salted. We wanted local wine by the glass, so we could have white and red but not one glass with each course as we had a long drive the following day. The sommelier was quite dismissive and suggested a half bottle instead which was not really the point. We were also quite ignored when our glasses needed refilling. Overall the service was decidedly lacking, there were several staff but some only seemed to be allowed to carry out specific tasks which seemed inefficient. Maybe wee were just unlucky but we did wonder also whether the World Cup game (France were playing that night) was providing a distraction in the kitchen.
