The tour in the little train was interesting and there's an optional stop at this vineyard. It's a pretty little place and the guide was good at showing how to taste wine, especially if you haven't been shown the 'proper' way before. But, sadly, our...More

During the train tour around the Saint Emilion, I stopped with my wife to do a visit tour in this chateau and take a sip of wine. The tour showed the rock cave like a pyramid interior with the oak barrels and lazying bottles. The...More

As part of the little tourist train for a few Euros more you get to visit this small, proudly French, Chateaux. Very friendly, impressive cellars, lovely wine. Definitely recommended.

Unfortunately the attitude of the gentleman who guided us around the chateau and caves wasn't great and kept addressing us as 'English people' which, yes we are, but this was unnecessary and became a little rude after several times. There were also references to England...More

On a hot day, we went with friends on the little train, which afforded breathtaking views of the country side around Saint Emilion. The commentary was a bit loud and seemed like advertisements for the various chateaux that we passed, but nevertheless it was enjoyable....More
