Thursday Doors: Chaniers

Just outside the town of Chaniers, in the Charente region, is a distillery where they make Pineau Charentes (a fortified wine: a sort of French equivalent of sherry and very delicious) housed in a 16th century chateau. I particularly liked the irony of this very old, weatherbeaten and characterful door, with multiple bolts, locks and latches, being situated next to an open gate that you could, quite literally, drive a bus through.
