This is one of the oldest and most beautiful Médoc properties. A 13th century château, which is pretty rare in this part of the world, and an excellent welcome for visitors, with a consistenly innovative approach, whether through iPod tours for adults and children (the junior version includes a treasure hunt and rescuing a princess from the castle), or through hosting music concerts and open-air cinema evenings in summer. Wine and chocolate tastings also available, plus a few other interesting options that change regularly (see their website). The château building itself has the requisite towers and spires to make it a fairytale building, and there are two separate walled vineyards that total almost 40 hectares.
