Owned by Jean-Luc Thunevin, the garagiste winemaker of Château Valandraud, this is the only wine bar I know of in Bordeaux where you can buy such illustrious wines by the glass – Ausone, Cheval Blanc, Valandraud, Yquem.... There is also a good range of wines to buy from across Bordeaux, and everything bought can be consumed on the premises at no extra cost.

Useful information: Open ‘in season’ 09.30-21.00; best to check first.
