Très bon accueil et surtout belle propreté traditionnelle. Tout est fait à la main ou avec les chevaux qui entretiennent les parcelles. Un premier vin à la hauteur de nos espérances !! Le 2ème vin du château est très différent mais réjouira vos apéros ou vos repas d’été : très fruité ! Que du Bonheur!!
très bel accueil et surtout excellente compétence et disponibilité de notre accompagnatrice au Chateau Franc Mayne
