Our journey will start in my hometown of Bordeaux, on the alleys of Tourny, where we will meet you to head towards Pessac Léognan and Sauternes, these 2 picturesque regions surrounded by vineyards.
We will meet the owner of a grand cru, who will give us a private tour of their chateau, vineyards, cellars and their history that goes back in time over many generations.
We will then move on to tasting different vintages, in the presence of the owners and their expert advisers.
And an other vision (still amazing) of Bordeaux wine in an other château in Sauternes. With always visit and degustation.
Finally, and according to your wishes, we can admire several legendary chateaux of the Bordeaux vineyard.

Très bon tour, intéressant. Juste ce qu'il faut en terme de timing. Visite de 2 châteaux avec des dégustions et la rencontres avec les propriétaires entre 8h30 et 14h. Je conseille vivement.

Il ne me vient qu’un mot à l’esprit: merveilleux wine tour!!! Entre la visite dans ce lieu rempli d’histoire à Pessac Leognan et la dégustation tout simplement incroyable (goûter absolument ce blanc) la journée commençait bien. Gildas nous a recommandé une super table le midi. Pour poursuivre par la visite d’un des plus beaux châteaux du Sauternais. Accueil chaleureux, tout est de très bons goûts. Gildas a su toute la journée nous intéresser avec ses anecdotes et ses connaissances sur le vin à Bordeaux (négociant de formation il en connaît un rayon). Nous reviendrons prochainement pour visiter le Médoc avec Gildas. À bientôt 🍷😋 It only comes to me one word: wonderful !!! Between the visit in this place full of history in Pessac Leognan and the tasting simply incredible (to taste absolutely the white wine) the day started well. Gildas recommended a great table lunch. To continue by visiting one of the most beautiful castles of Sauternes. Warm welcome, everything is very good taste. Gildas knew all the day to interest us with his anecdotes and his knowledge on the wine in Bordeaux (wine merchant of formation he knows a ray). We will come back soon to visit the Médoc with Gildas
