You have no doubt heard of appellations such as Margaux, Pauillac, Saint Julien or Saint Estèphe…
These are indeed the Médoc’s four most prestigious appellations, that Denis, one of owners of Château Beauséjour hDL, Saint Émilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, invites you to explore over the course a day full of sights and sensations that starts from wherever you are staying in Bordeaux.
Build your wine tour according to your desire and discover the most beautiful castles of Medoc: private tours, tasting of fine wines, lunch or gourmet dinner …
Climb aboard Bordeaux Wine Trotter’s Mercedes luxury vehicle and enjoy the ride to your first destination. The drive offers an excellent opportunity to chat to Denis, who will be happy to regale you with anecdotes and reveal secrets from his rich store of insider knowledge.
The price per person for a day, all inclusive, varies:
From : group of 2 persons / 700 € TTC / person
A : group of 8 people / 250 € TTC / person
The day begins with Château Margaux, a sumptuous property that dates from the 16th century and which, perhaps more importantly, is a Premier Grand Cru Classé. A tour of the property is followed by a private tasting, providing an opportunity for you learn about the techniques and subtleties of tasting fine wines.
The day continues the day with lunch in Pauillac in a favourite haunt of winegrowers and other locals. A chance to sample some delicious, generous cuisine, and a glass of wine, in an authentic, convivial atmosphere.
After lunch, at around 2:30 pm, we continue the tours and private tastings in a well-known 2nd Cru Classé in the Saint Julien appellation. This will be the occasion to perfect the skills that you acquired during the first tasting; it is always fun to try to recognize the various flavours present in the wines, and perhaps you will also be able to guess the vintages that will be sampled.
END OF THE DAY
To end the day in style, we continue, doubling back slightly to Pauillac, in order to visit a Premier Grand Cru Classé. Another opportunity to taste some extremely fine wines, and to experience new aromas, flavours and nuances.
Bordeaux Wine Trotter suggests these tours, but nothing is fixed, they are simply a guideline.
Denis will be delighted to create your own personalized wine-tour to suit your preferences.
