Valençay's wine cellar

Valençay is where the great French chef Carême worked in the early 19th century, when Napoleon's foreign minister Talleyrand lived in the château there.

The wine cellar at Valençay...

...is right under this end of the château.

You can visit Carême's kitchen and wine cellar in the basement of the château de Valençay.

I've gone back to word verification, because there have been too many problems with both comment-moderation and registered-user-only Blogger schemes. Hope this works better...
