Bordeaux is probably one of the first destinations that pops into everybody’s mind when thinking about French wine. The region stars famous chateaux producing the most sought-after wines around the world and has long been a major destination for wine lovers. While in Bordeaux, you will visit the impressive chateaux of the left bank in the heart of Medoc, in Margaux, Saint-Julien, Pauillac to name just a few, before crossing the Dordogne river to explore the right bank wines in Saint-Emilion and Pomerol. Your chauffeur will also drive you south of Bordeaux, along Garonne river to taste Pessac-Léognan wines and dessert wines in Sauternes and Barsac. The dining scene in Bordeaux has been thriving this last decade and every night will be a different experience from dinner at theTable du chef in a Michelin restaurant to a plate of charcuterie and cheese at the counter of a wine bar.
