Besides their excellent wines and beautiful historic property and castle, they have a tall modern tower, with elevator, to take you up to a lookout platform for a 365° view of their property and the beautiful area of the Saint Julien appellation.

We visited here during a river cruise. Just beautiful and some of our favorite wines of the seven days in Bordeaux. I love hearing about the technology that is used by big wine giants to keep their grapes safe and healthy.
