Was slightly disappointed by the tour and tasting compared to other Chateau we visited. We went for the "Finesse" tasting and convinced the 2011 wine was corked but the guide was having none of it, just saying a poor wine! The tour is quite limited...More

While this is a serious Grand Cru winery, the people are fun, friendly and it’s a nice educational experience. They’ve planted vines of the different bordeaux varietals so you can see the difference in how they look, both grape and leaf formations. The wines are...More

This is an unusual estate that is coordinated with Leoville Las Cases. The tour walks you through the fermentation facilities as well as the barrel aging areas. It is worth the time and the tasting is excellent.

There is no better way to start off a day by driving through sunny Bordeaux. Everything about this region screams romance from the brimming green hedgerows, crystal clear skies, chalky soil, charming architecture and of course lashings of a wonderful language and its pronunciation which,...More

Came here with a riverboat tour and had a very nice guide around the facility followed by a series of delicious tastings. Note that this is a large facility so there will be a bit of walking, but nothing untoward or difficult. Gorgeous grounds.The tasting/souvenir...More

We were two couples on this tour, reserved through the Maison du Vin at Pauillac. Great service there too, by the way. The tour was very instructive, with hands on showing of both grapes, soil and fermentation /cellars. And great tasting. Very insightful and lively...More
