You often recognize a Bordeaux when you do a wine tasting blind. The notes of cassis, cedarwood, sometimes tobacco. On the palate you have the tannins and the structure and the unmistakable character of the oak barrels in the background.
Bordeaux makes distinguished wines destined for a long life but not only. Some Bordeaux wines are lighter in style and meant to be enjoyed earlier, with any meal. Always with a meal, the Bordeaux wines are food wines. We will spend time on the left bank – Médoc and Graves – as well as the right bank, which includes Saint Emilion and Pomerol.
Some superb lunches will be served at the chateaux displaying France’s outstanding gastronomy.
Come with us on the fabulous wine tour to Bordeaux.

PS: We have written a book about Bordeaux, and have been travelling there since 1986, so we have a bit of a clue of what we’re talking about.
