My partner and I visited nine châteaux in Bordeaux in October 2019 (four left bank, including Mouton-Rothschild, and five right bank) and this was my favourite. Not only is the place itself visually stunning—with its medieval tower, its neo-gothic 18th century château, and arguably the best views of Saint-Émilion vineyards (as it is on top of a hill)—but the tour itself was very enjoyable, thanks to our knowledgeable, funny and engaging guide (a lovely lady whose name starts with L but unfortunately escapes me). She not only explained the history of the château and its owner well, but also helped us better appreciate the wine (the 2011 pre-classification first label and the 2014 second label) through a tutored tasting. Some saucisson, cheese and grissini were served, too.It should also be said that our fantastic guide turned around a potentially negative experience into an amazing one: our small group tour (booked in advance) turned into a massive group tour because a 20-strong group of non-English speaking foreigners arrived 2 hours late! But despite the frequent pauses (to allow the group’s translator time to give the commentary), our guide went out of her way to make sure all my and my partner’s questions were answered. She also allowed us to taste a classified vintage of the first label — which tipped us into buying! (My partner and I ended up shipping 12 bottles home to Australia.) She also volunteered to take a photo of us once the big group left. This guide was a true brand ambassador!Such a fascinating winemaker, too. His cellar looks unlike the other cellars we saw, and how interesting that he is foregoing a chance to become a premier grand cru classé in the 2022 classification so he can come in even stronger in 2032. And it’s his third career! What an inspiration. He also makes a fantastic rosé, which is surprising.I highly recommend visiting Château de Pressac!

Accueil très sympathique. La personne qui nous a fait découvrir votre domaine était très agréable et a répondu à toutes nos questions avec le sourire. Nous avons fait la visite avec nos enfants (5 et 11 ans) et nous avons apprécié qu\'ils soient également reçus avec le sourire (ce qui n\'est pas le cas dans tous les domaines que nous avons visités). Gardez cet esprit familial dans vos visites car cela change d\'autres domaines qui deviennent beaucoup trop industriels. Merci beaucoup pour votre accueil Cordialement, Françoise Bowering

Flavian, our, guide was wonderful! She was engaging, knowledgeable and welcomed our many questions. The estate sits on a hill and the panoramic view is magnificent. The wine is beautifully crafted and well priced. Thank you Favian for our tour!

Plus aucun vin d'années intéressantes en vente. Un peu décevant. Faire déguster du 2011 ou 2013 n'est pas très sexy.
