This morning it was pouring rain when we went out for breakfast. First we went to see the Porte Cailhau, one of the gateways of the city then we found a place for breakfast.
Then it was back to the hotel, pack up and walk to the car park. Thank goodness we have good raincoats.
We drove to the Cité du Vin museum. It was a perfect day to learn more about wine and wine history.
At the top of the museum we gat a taste of wine and a wonderful view.
The drive from Bordeaux to Saint-Emilion took less than an hour. Saint-Emilion is a picturesque old village full of wine shops. We are staying in a very nice chambre de hôtes over a wine shop, Hôtes de Saint-Emilion.
We ate at L’Huitrier Pie a gourmet restaurant right next door to where we are staying. It is a Michelin listed restaurant so it is difficult to compare it to other restaurants where we have eaten. Each dish was a work of art, the taste combinations in each bite were complex and the service was perfect.
