Cave Monplaisir reviews
After a long day visiting castles and abbeys we were ready for something different ... a WINE CAVE. I was not feeling well but my girlfriend went in, I stayed in the car. After 10 min she was back to.... more »
It was ok. Free entry and free wine tasting. A warm welcome but there are better vineyard caves to visit in the area. more »
Another cave cut out of the rock (like Plouzy), this time a bit further out of tow - a 20 inute walk, or in our case a 1 minute ride in the car. Good parking, nice reception, interesting visit. And... more »
We went for a tasting on a cold Saturday afternoon. The cave is very breathtaking (it goes 500 meters deep into the rock). At the bar we tasted different very nice wines from different winemakers. The serving temperature was perfect and the lady who helped us had a lot to tell about the wines and was very enthusiastic. Would absolutely go again!
It was closed for lunch but looked like fun. Visited other local wineries instead
This was a great free wine cave and tasting. First, we explored the cave on our own, and then we went up to the bar for a free and very generous tasting (4-5 pours each). Our host at the bar spoke excellent English and gave us so much interesting info along with our tastes. We didn't feel patronized or pressured to buy - but we did end up buying three bottles because they were delicious and well-priced. This place is worth the 15-min walk along the river from town, and it is more likely to be open even when other tasting rooms are closed.
Lovely host welcoming us and explaining the wines stored to age in her cave. Good prices and quality, definitely recommend Les Picasses
Warm welcome and very good wines. I recommend
