Clos des Menuts
This vineyard takes pride of place among St Emilion's great vintages. One of the oldest properties in the town, and one of the highest at 90 meters (295 feet) above sea level, the 30-year old vineyard at Clos des Menuts spans some 30 hectares (74 acres) and produces a rich, full-bodied wine, brimming with distinguished flavor and verve. It is one of the few vintages to benefit from a long aging process amid cavernous medieval cellars, hollowed right out of the rock, which maintains a constant ideal temperature of 12 degrees Celsius (53 degrees Fahrenheit). The tour includes a visit to the galleries where the wine is stored - entry and tasting is free if you make a purchase.
Les caves sont impressionnantes, à environ 10m de profondeur, et avec des bouteilles qui reposent au frais. La visite et gratuite et on peut ensuite déguster les vins qu'ils produisent (gratuit aussi). Ils possèdent plusieurs chateaux.
C'est un incontournable de Saint Emilion, à faire en famille, entre amis ou en couple.
Having drunk one or two bottles of their fine wine, it was a pleasure to visit the friendly (and generous in their sample portions) hosts at the cave in over-busy St.Emilion. A stark contrast to the grand Chateaux of the Medoc but just as fascinating. A great first stop for new explorers of the grape. P.S. Also try the Riviere's reasonably priced quaffing white.
