Hotel Le Bussy is a good starting point for lovers of the vineyards of Anjou and Touraine. In the heart of a golden wine triangle, you can taste the many grape varieties of AOC Bourgueil, AOC Chinon and AOC Saumur.
To discover the AOC Chinon, we advise you to visit the Monplaisir cellar in Chinon. Combining a troglodyte visit with wine tasting, this is an unusual experience in Touraine. On arrival, you are welcomed by Claude and Pascale, both passionate, knowledgeable, smiling and very friendly. The troglodyte cellar is impressive, very large, atypical! You walk through huge galleries converted into storage and ageing cellars which contain no less than 700 barrels and tens of thousands of bottles of the greatest wines of Chinon.
You will taste good wines from Domaine de Raifault, Domaine de l’Abbaye and Jean-Maurice Raffault, among others.
To be drunk in moderation of course, but to be discovered without delay!
From the cellar, you can take part in an 8km walk around the site with a visit and discovery of the AOC Chinon at the cellar, a Rabelaisian lunch outside and a trip in a gabare on the Vienne.
