Very close to the downtown Village of Saint-Emilion. A classified winery with the excellent wines and unbelievable experience underground and touring the caves that were once dug for the limestones that built Saint-Emilion.

Beautiful family vineyard which is 90% Merlot. The tour leader was very knowledgeable and the best part was the huge old quarry they use for storing the barrels. Beautiful wine and a vineyard I would recommend.
