A few late-summer days in Bordeaux

One cannot complain when one stands on the terrasse in the late-summer sunshine and look out over the chateau’s garden. With a perfectly chilled four year old white Bordeaux wine from one of the very top estates in the Graves. And then sit down for lunch in the chateau’s private dining room to enjoy a four course gourmet meal with as many wines.

Or when you arrive at one of the smaller family-owned wine estates and go for a walk  around the vineyard with the owner, and he explains in the most brilliant way what the difference is between a vineyard managed organically, to encourage biodiversity, and one managed traditionally chemically: “It is so quiet in a “traditionally” managed vineyard. There are not many insects so there are no birds.”

Ending with a tasting of a series of the chateau’s wines.

After which you continue to a country restaurant in the middle of the vineyards to feast on a foie gras (if you want) and a barbecued magret de canard and a few more wines.

That is what we did with a few travel guests earlier this autumn.
