We are by no means wine connoisseurs but we do enjoy wine with our dinners. We were fortunate enough to have visited this winery during a tour of the South of France in May. We had a most interesting visit, starting with a short tour through the room with the huge wine casks. Everything was neat and clean. We continued on to the tasting room where we tasted a white wine and two reds. I am sorry I don't remember the names of the wines but believe they were Chateauneuf du Pape labels. The first taste was the white wine, then the lavender chocolate, then the wine with the chocolate. Amazing how the order of the items affected the tastes. We also tasted a red wine alone and then another red wine, followed by a thyme flavored chocolate and then the wine and the chocolate together. A very personable young man, Ben, who conducted the tasting took his time in explaining how to hold the glass, how to smell the wine (there are different ways), how to take the first taste of wine, the first taste of chocolate and how to taste the two together. I never knew you could have wine and chocolate together and that it would be so good. It was most informative and enjoyable. This would be a fun first date or a birthday gift idea. They have a nice gift shop with some unique gifts for wine lovers. I definitely recommend Le Pavillon des Vins for an interesting activity.
