Very pleasant to look at surrounded by vines but close to town. We had bought a promo pack ith a bottle of Vauban red and.a pot of terrine. The deal included a tour of the vineyard , the winery, a ride in a horse drawn carriage and a 4 course lunch., less than 75 euros for 2. It turned out fabulous. The guide and her assistants were very knowlegeable, confident and entertaining. Due to the dreadful weather the caleche ride was cancelled so we were treated to a glass of clairette and achat inside the chateau. Lunch was at the same time simple and wonderful. It was a master class of top qulity, unusual items, in our case sturgeon and sander, plus caviar, cheese and a lovely dessert. Each course was served with a different wine, each one a step up in quality from the previous one. Truly excellent wines. We opened the promo pack bottle later and discovered another super red. We are normally pretty tight fisted and rarely go in for costly treats, especially at lunchtime, but we will certainly conside r repeating this treat! A great experience!

Trudy wanted to have a nice dinner in a relaxing atmosphère .
All started well food was good but all around was organised for you to spend as much money as possible ( Tourist Trap)
Overall we were disapointed

Well prepared programme .showing how the vineyard operated . The meal was excellent as was the choice of wines and generous tastings,with each course. The caleche ride was an added bonus..A very good value day out.

We enjoyed a lovely meal in the restaurant, whilst sampling the Chateau's wines. Our guide was knowledgeable and amusing and all the staff were friendly. We also enjoyed our ride on the little train to the Citadel . Well worth a visit
