Bucolique et agréable
Catherine Berlato 08/03/2021
Visite très agréable accompagnée d’une excellente guide. Nous avons le plaisir de découvrir nos vins bordelais au sein de deux châteaux typiques. Nous apprenons beaucoup de chose: les sépares, les modes de vinification, les types de vins selon la géographie et les sols... nous avons en plus le plaisir de déguster les vins et de visualiser toutes ces connaissances viticoles. Quel plaisir de visiter le village médiéval de saint émilion. En bref un excellent moment.

Visite parfaitement organisée

Sonia, notre guide, nous a organisé une visite des vignobles de Saint-Emilion qui touche la perfection. Nous avons eu le droit à son expertise sur l'historique des vignobles et les différences entre les différents vins de Bordeaux, et aussi aux explications des procédés de vinification et d'élevages de plusieurs vignerons: ma compagne et moi avons énormément appris, je suis très satisfait de cette expérience! Je recommande vivement cette excursion si vous voulez enrichir vos connaissances sur le vin de Saint-Emilion, sans oublier la visite du village! Merci encore Sonia, nous reviendrons à Bordeaux, nous avons beaucoup aimé, A bientôt, Maëlys et Thibault

Fantastique tour
Olivier Zbinden 07/10/2021
Le choix des deux vignobles, très différents, nous a beaucoup plu. Nous recommandons vivement cette excursion. La guide, Sonia, nous a donné d’excellentes explications et elle était très intéressante à écouter (par expérience au contraire d’autres guides).

Buen plan!

El tour es muy recomendable. Se visitan dos bodegas, ambas con degustación. En una de las bodegas no hubo visita a la misma, sólo degustación. La visita al pueblo está bien, es chiquito y se recorre en un ratito. La guía nos dio información en todo momento, muy predispuesta a responder preguntas

Excellent wine tasting tour

Two of us joined Sonia’s St.Emilion wine tasting tour on the Sunday afternoon of the long Platinum Jubilee weekend. It was limited to a group of 8 in Sonia’s air conditioned mini-bus so didn’t feel like a group tour. In the 45 minutes or so it takes to drive to the area, Sonia shares a lot of useful background information on the wine industry in the region. The first stop was Chateau La Renommee where the owner Jean-Michel gave an excellent tour and explanation of the area and wine making process - he’s clearly passionate about what he does and it doesn’t feel like he’s given the tour many, many times. He then led a tasting of his various wines accompanied by a small selection of cheese and charcuterie. We particularly liked their Maine Rabyon Grand Cru 2005 so bought a bottle (we were flying) to take back with us at around €35. Next it was on to St. Emilion itself for a walk around the very picturesque village - we were pleased Sonia was in charge of parking as it was a bit congested - followed by Chateau le Chatelet which was a step up in price. We liked their 2018 Grand Cru Classe at €55 but felt a bit inadequate being surrounded by Americans (good to see them back!) shipping cases home with our single bottle purchase. It was then a relatively short drive back to the meeting place at Place Stalingrad. Worth noting that we got back shortly after 6, whereas the tour info indicates 7pm, if you’re looking to book somewhere to eat afterwards (the area around Stalingrad is not a gourmets paradise but it’s only a couple of stops back on the tram to the main restaurant area). Would recommend this tour if you’re only in Bordeaux for a few days and want to sample the St. Emilion area.
