Weather permitting, the unique sensory tour at the chateau is an amusing and unforgettable experience, changing perceptions of taste and aroma.
The tour starts in the scent garden, planted with a selection of plants chosen for their perfume, their taste or simply how they look - and all associated with the colours and flavours to be found in wine, both red and white. Using your olfactory memory (cheers, Proust)! the tour is designed to awaken the senses, enabling you to remember and reuse remembered tastes and odeurs when tasting the wines. The tour also features a tour of the cellars and the greenhouse - designed by Gustave Eiffel himself, - and finishes up in the XV1 pigeonhouse, now a tasting tower where you can exercise your newfound skills in a wine tasting.
The tours are available on reservation only and depends on the weather. The award winning scent garden is open from June until September.
