Seeing all the well-known Bordeaux chateaux in real life is a great experience. Some of them are very impressive. However, some of the most famous ones, like Château Petrus or Chateau Mouton-Rothschild, are small and not so imposing but when you know the price of the wines you are a bit impressed anyway.
Many chateaux were built in the 18th and 19th century with the beautiful light coloured sandstone extracted from quarries in the region. Many chateaux in Saint Emilion use them as underground cellars today.
The history is always very present in Bordeaux which adds a dimension to the visits and the wine tastings. And, of course, to the lovely lunches at some of the most beautiful chateaux in Médoc, Saint Emilion and Graves.
