Absolutely loved the tour, really excellent! Scott was a brilliant and knowledgeable host, as were the two tour guides at the chateaus. The only possible way to improve would have been another opportunity to enjoy a full glass of wine as part of the tour.

The tasting and blending exercise was a bit rushed. The staff were very pleasant, patient, and accommodating. There were technical problems with the label printing and quality. We got a good feel of the challenges facing the winemaker every vintage!

The Pape Clement facility is beautiful. LOVE the large oak aging barrels with the cooling/heating coils inside. One thing. Our tour guide was very sweet and very knowledgeable. At times it was a little hard to understand her English. Thank you for a great tour.

We suspect the wines served for tasting were opened too long ago and lost their qualities,except for the Sauternes,all was a disaster!Was it because of a monday visit?We rejoiced to taste those high ranking wines but it happened to be so disappointing...Not worth the price of 20 euros per ticket.We should have been delighted instead.

Kokkonen Maria - 2015/10/21
Visite du Connaisseur

The guide was very experienced and did the tour well but unfortunately there happened to be a group of older Spanish men who ignored the guide and the other guests and made the tour their own show by translating the French explanations into Spanish. This was of course not the guide's fault but it was just unfortunate for the other guests.

Fontaine Nicolas - 2015/10/10

Very interesting visit : my best ever in a winery. Guided tour was in French tough, as only French people attended it (including myself). So your question about the quality of spoken language is probably irrelevant.

Gonzalez Laurent - 2015/09/26
Visite du Connaisseur

Les vins degustés ne sont vraiment pas à la hauteur de la reputation d'un chateau de tel renom. Un clementin 2012 infame, piquant, une anti-pub de pape clement. Un vin du langudoc de cepage syrah qui tape la tête, le tout sans même une olive d'accompagnement. Pas terrible pour un 1er grand cru classé. Mais la visite et les explications etaient vraiment au top.
