Bordeaux to Saint-Emilion

Sunday morning we walked around Bordeaux a bit to find some breakfast pastries. Later we walked to a bus stop and took a bus to the airport where we picked up the rental car that we will drive to Paris.

We drove to Saint-Emilion. Duke and I stayed in Saint-Emilion last year. On that trip we stayed above a wine shop and regretted the fact that they were closed when we left so we weren’t able to buy wine. This time we went straight to the wine shop we visited last time, tasted some wine and ordered some to ship home. It makes a perfect souvenir.

We are staying a couple of miles outside of Saint-Emilion at a chateau surrounded by vineyards. It’s called Château Fombrauge.

For dinner we went to Camille & Soufiane the Michelin restaurant we ate at last year. It was a wonderful dining experience. The flavors and presentation of the food were perfect.

  1. LeAnne, I’m glad you are enjoying following along. I hope we can meet in person one day! I hadn’t notice the tree! Although it does look like it is growing out of the restaurant, they actually have a courtyard in front of their front door.


    1. Yes, I hope we can meet someday! I feel a kindred spirit in many of your interests and an appreciation for those things (like this blog & your great photos) that I could never hope to emulate. Thanks for explaining about the courtyard.
