Teaching us how to blend wines at Chateau Gaby
View from Chateau Fraugeres of its wineyards.
View of the surrounding countryside from the first Château on our tour.
The first part of lunch provided after our morning ride and tour of the Château. Fruit and cheese platters followed!
Our tour guide Marion gave the group an option to spend part of our time in the village doing a tasting with Bruno Paties at and quot;Le Cellier de Saint Emilion. and quot;. So glad we did because we all tasted some of the very best wines here, and plenty of them (about 8 different high quality wines). Outstanding!
Great view over the village of St. Emilion
Chateau Soutard was a very nice trip with a great guide (Alex), but the wine didn't quite seem equal to the value. Just a personal opinion. Great visit nonetheless to see a more high-tech type of production.
After a very educational visit through Chateau Soutard, our guide Alex introduces us to the 2006 vintage of the Grand Cru Classe and a similar wine from 2008.
The wine guide takes us into the underground cellars of Magnan La Gaffeliere.
This is from our visit to the second vineyard of the day at Magnan La Gaffeliere. This winery showed the tour more old fashioned techniques of making wine. the guide was extremely knowledgeable and carried with him eight years of higher education focused one on wine production. Very insightful!
