Pleasures of the Palate
After a brief tour of the estate (lasting around 30 minutes), indulge your senses with a tasting of four wines: two vintages of Roches de Yon, the estate’s second wine, and two vintages of Château Yon-Figeac, a Grand Cru Classé.
This expert-led tasting session will help you to better understand the “vintage effect”, which plays such a big role in Bordeaux, as well as giving you the opportunity to compare different blends from the same year, before finishing on a high note with a tasting of an exceptional Château Yon-Figeac vintage!
We have a number of tables dotted around the estate’s leafy gardens, available for picnics (booking required). Our picnic hampers are prepared by a local caterer, and the contents vary from week to week.
Picnic hampers are available from April through to the end of September on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
