A slice of heaven for the hors d’âge marvels
A medieval cellar you could only dream of: age-old barrels bound by lacy cobwebs carefully maintained to ward off wood-eating insects. This former stop on the Way of St James houses Maison Lhéraud’s most precious elixirs. Exquisitely old eaux-de-vie lie in demijohns, awaiting the arrival of the devotees invited to a reception in this hallowed place, to taste a drop of history.
I love Le Paradis for its peaceful atmosphere, steeped in the angels’ share, the emanations released from the barrels, which blacken the ceiling. Here you can feel the work of time on the earth, wood and stone.
