We stopped at this picturesque winery mainly because it was open at lunchtime, unlike most tasting rooms. Our time with the very knowledgeable manager, Clemence, was such a pleasure. The wines were excellent - the experience exceeded our exoectations.

My wife and I came from Malaysia to visit this place as we're both wine lovers. The tour provided by Clamence (hope I got the spelling/name correct) was fantastic and educational for us as we got to understand so much more about wine in France...More

The full range from fun fizz to wine of deeper quality. The vigneronne continues to improve and expand the vineyard. An excellent correlation between price and quality. Warm welcome and a relaxed atmosphere for tastings.
