Benjamin was amazing and excellent knowledge of all of the appellations, vintages, and the most sought after labels. He also enabled us to taste a variety of wines once he knew what we liked. We ended up purchasing some really nice right bank and left bank wines and Benjamin treats you so well that you have to stop and check this one if you are in St Emilion.

St. Emilion has long been our favorite Bordeaux region. We were intent on buying a couple cases while visiting there. We did our tasting with Morgan who was very friendly and knowledgable. He offered samples from some small producers based on our preferences. We bought 2 cases. At dinner that evening we had another wonderful Grand Cru. The next day the shop did a search for us and found a case for us. The 3 cases arrived promptly via UPS. Shipping was very reasonable. I did some searching on line and found the prices we paid to be very fair. Based on the service, knowledge,
and pricing, I now have a dependable wine source right in St. Emilion!

A friend had arranged a tour with Benjamin from Vignobles & Chateaux of a local winery that they work with. He was a great tour guide, spoke perfect english, was happy to answer all of our questions, and was very knowledgeable about the wine making process and wine markets. We went back to Vignobles & Chateaux for a wine tasting and Benjamin did a great job walking us novices through the different wines, making recommendations and narrowing down our preferences. We bought a few bottles to bring back to the US (they will also ship cases) and look forward to cracking them open and reminiscing about our trip to France.

i speak very little french and wished to find an english speaking wine merchant to guide me through the maze of flavors from this area. julia was that person. she is enthusiastic and passionate about the wines of bordeaux. she took her time to explain her thoughts and directly answer my many questions. never, never condescending. she wants you to experience the great wines of her area and not break the bank doing so. merci beaucops, julia.

We visited on a Viking Cruise-arranged private tour of two chateau in St. Emilion. Benjamin Louchjez was our guide at the Chateau Beausejour and then took us to the Vignobles & Chateau shop he works at in St. Emilion for a private tasting of the 2003 vintage along with other wines. We had the tasting in the basement tasting room and thoroughly enjoyed it. Benjamain inquired about our preferences in wine tastes and then perfectly matched several others that were great and matched our like of full fruit, soft tannin wines. A great experience fort the eight of us.
