From Bordeaux: Full-Day St Emilion Wine Tasting Tour

1. From Bordeaux: Full-Day St Emilion Wine Tasting Tour

The wine region of Libournais encompasses much of what is referred to as the Right Bank. Named after its historical capital, the expression Right Bank typically refers to wines from the Pomerol and St-Emilion areas of the Libournais. There are several villages around the region that share the Saint-Émilion name, such as Montagne-Saint-Émilion and St-Georges-Saint-Émilion which are named the satellite appellations. The area is bordered to the west by Pomerol. Merlot is the dominant grape in this area, followed by Cabernet Franc and a very small quantity of Malbec that is tending to disappear. The climate and damper, cool soils of the area make it difficult for Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to fully ripen and as such is less often used. Depart for the Saint Emilion wine region and enjoy a visit and wine tasting at a famous classified growth Chateaux of the Pomerol or Saint Emilion appellation. Afterward, arrive in the village of Saint Emilion and enjoy a guided walking tour with your guide to discovering the main monuments of this quaint hilltop village. During your free time for lunch and personal discovery, visit the underground monuments of Saint Emilion. In the afternoon, experience another visit and wine tasting session in one of the selected Classified Chateaus of Saint Emilion.

Our guide, Jerome, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the area and the wines and production, rating, and all other aspects. Jerome was very courteous and helpful as it was raining all day, he did his best to make sure that he parked where we wouldn’t be walking in the rain too much. The entire tour was fun and very interesting. Even though we have been on several different wine tours in the past, we learned several things on this tour. We were very glad we took this tour and are going to make sure to recommend it to our friends.

As part of the tour, we had three wine tastings in the St. Emilion region. The wine was amazing. As a bonus, we were able to have a chocolate tasting and toured the church. The guide, Jerome (sp?), was highly knowledgeable and spoke excellent English.
