“A wonderful glimpse of how the suburbanite residents of Bordeaux live(d)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

The tourist office told us which busses to take to get to Pessac; it isn't hard or expensive. The charge for a tasting tour was 10 Euro with ONE wine, 20 Euro for 3 wines etc. YIPE!!! It BETTER be good!!! While they could have gotten my husband and i in on a tour within the next hour, we abstained once we found that we could wander the grounds on our own and take photos. How very nice of this Chateau to keep this aspect absolutely free. it didn't look like the place to bring a picnic blanket and spread out, but folks going about their business (of crushing grapes/making wine) were cordial and didn't discourage us. we found a Donor Kebab place (Kebab Delicious Monteil?) just next to the bus stop back to town, had a couple of drippy Gyros along with a bottle of wine we'd brought with us, and felt more relaxed after a FINE day out in the Bordeaux suburbs.
