One of our participants called this tour facetiously the Bordeaux Bootcamp. And true, today
we did have 4 winery visits plus lunch, but 3 of the wineries were classified growths and lunch was at the 2 star Cordeillan Bages so for a winelover, today was more like Bordeaux Bliss!
The day started with a private tour and tasting at the 4th growth St Julien winery, Branaire Ducru, followed by a private tour and tasting at the magnificent Pichon Longueville Baron, a 2nd growth Pauillac.
After lunch at Cordeillan Bages, we had private tours and tastings at Haut-Marbuzet, an under-valued St. Estèphe just behind Cos d’Estournel and ended at Lynch-Bages, a 4th growth that warrants being bumped up to a higher ranking.
If this is Bootcamp Bordeaux, give me more!
