A very interesting visit accompanied by a charming guide who took a lot of time to make sure all of our group understood her commentary. An extremely pleasant way to learn about wine making in the Loire Valley. Detailed tasting and smart shop.

Somewhat commercial set up, but they do make good wine. Highly recommend the cuvée flamme both brut and rose. Definitely worth stocking up and you can get 10% off by taking a voucher to be found in many local restaurants e.g. Le Cristal.
