I tested the « autumn splendours » at the Zen Garden.

I visited this wonderful garden in spring, intoxicated with its fragrances; in summer, I found here some freshness and could admire the lotus flowering… Nice in all seasons, the autumn at the Zen Garden is for sure a real moment of grace ! Its Japanese maples get flamboyant colours : fire red and brightly shining orange pierced by the sunshine… The light and colour touches are so in harmony in this Zen spirit that I feel like in an impressionist painting.

The scenes follow each other, I’m strolling and immersing myself in this warm atmosphere before the winter dull… It’s already getting dark, I find shelter in the Domaine des Clairmonts which just gave birth to its “Jardin Zen” cuvee ! This organic Crozes Hermitage took advantage of the tranquillity of the garden located at the foot of the vineyard. The white brings me back to the garden’s spring atmosphere with its white flowers notes, I hear the bees humming… The red, a gourmand wine, mixes in the glass some red fruits and spicy touches, transporting me to the excursion I made in the afternoon…

I was astonished by the splendours I could see and taste : ready to face winter !
