A small chateau worth visiting thanks to the pleasant owner who was our guide. It was just the two of us and we spent a nice half-an-hour visiting, watching an interesting video, chatting and tasting a glass of wine. We left with a smile. Recommended

Nice little winery to visit in St Emilion, though not sure it should rate higher than the Monolith church itself but should certainly rate a lot higher than the mediocre Ch Cantenac that is currently rated no. 1 place to see in St Emilion!!
