It's tea time at Les Sources de Caudalie

6 December 2023
Tea Time

When the vines take on their golden hue, there's no doubt that autumn is well and truly upon us. A roaring fire, soft velvet cushions, a comforting hot drink and we're ready to enjoy a delicious tea time.


We invite you to every Saturday afternoon  for an unparalleled sensory experience at the French Paradox bar.. The menu offers an intoxicating variety of hot drinks, each paired with the unique pastry creations of the talented Chef Anthony Chenoz. And for the more festive, a champagne glass version is possible. From flan pâtissier to lemon tart, black forest or tatin revisited, sweet tooths are in for a treat. It's the perfect way to reconnect with the pleasures of childhood until spring.


Once the sweet delights have enchanted your taste buds, the invitation to relaxation extends into the establishment's enchanting park. It invites you to a soothing stroll amidst nature. It's a striking opportunity to discover or rediscover the subtleties of the vineyards of Château Smith Haut Lafitte, stretching harmoniously as far as the eye can see, while admiring the artistic installations scattered in the surroundings, each piece telling its own story and infusing a special magic into this preserved natural setting.


The Tea Time experience at the French Paradox bar offers two options:

€38 per person: Includes a hot beverage and four exquisite pastries.

€58 per person: Enhance your experience with a glass of champagne.
