This very fine charcuterie shop was established in 1972 offering all sorts of goodies including foie gras, pieds de cochon (pigs’ trotters) local truffles, patés and terrines as well as an array of cooked dishes. There is also a selection of local wines, including some old vintages, plus wines from other French regions particularly Bordeaux and Burgundy. Just the place to buy those picnic treats!
