France St Emilion Chateau de Candale

We were looking for a light lunch on Sunday and our hotel did book for us a quick wine tasting with lunch included in the Chateau de Candale domain. The owners are managing our different domains:

So we had the opportunity to taste them:

My preferred one was clearly this one:

Between you and I, nothing exceptional visiting the winery there as the wines are not exceptional… and it has nothing to be compared to the one we did last year Italy San Felice Ristorante Poggio Rosso which was ways above in terms of quality, wine and environment…

So the next part of the visit was the lunch in L’Atelier de Candale which is in the same domain, actually same location. You are eating on a beautiful terrace in the garden of the winery with a nice panorama and you enjoy the nature.
On the other hand, we are far away from the promises on their website at least for Sunday lunches.

As an example I asked my meat to be well done and even after sending it back, it came back medium! Service was so-so but offered the coffee to compensate the cooking issue.

So as you can imagine, I would not recommend that visit nor a lunch there… not worth it!
