Claude Darroze Restaurant Review

: Just half an hour from Bordeaux, this beautiful, peaceful restaurant provides a good excuse for an excursion. Chef Claude Darroze's refined, intelligent cuisine can be seen in his cèpe brouillade that is a work of art in rustic guise and nearly deserves three toques with its warm, soft eggs and perfectly cooked mushrooms. His roasted wood pigeon is admirable: cooked to perfection and accompanied by vegetables in a light wine sauce. The large cellar offers Bordeaux and wines of other regions, with some rare finds and good deals.
