What is the ideal pairing for Sauternes wines? In Bordeaux, this liquid gold has traditionally been enjoyed as an aperitif in place of Champagne. Alternatively, it has been oft presented alongside Foie Gras. However, it can easily be paired with other foods: blue cheeses, warm roasted chicken, gamey meats – veal, rabbit, duck – and buttery vegetables.

Keep reading for the hidden details of Saint-Emilion… Saint Emilion is a village of about 2000 people, 45 min away from Bordeaux.

When NYC Tastes blogger writes about her private wine tour with Bordeaux With Elodie… Cheers! Day two of the Bordeaux wine tour was also my birthday and it was absolutely perfect.   We began in St. Emilion; an amazing medieval town on the Right Bank of Bordeaux with breathtaking views from every angle and one of our favorite winery’s of the trip Chateau Guadet.  This small vineyard is one of only two wineries in the heart of St. Emilion and owned by the famous Petrus wine family.   The vineyard consists of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc grapes, merlot being the prominent grape grown on most Right Bank properties.

Bordeaux- Chateau Paloumey, Le Saint Julien & Chateau Mouton Rothschild & by NYC Tastes In order to get the full Bordeaux experience, we booked a two day wine tour through Bordeaux with Elodie. Our fantastic guide Lea picked us up at our place each morning then drove us to various wineries beginning with Chateau Paloumey on the Left Bank. This small winery has had a long history in the Medoc region however it wasn’t all wonderful.  Back in the 1950’s the original owners abandoned the vineyard due to rising costs and it wasn’t until 1990 when it was purchased by the Cazeneuve family that it became a fully functioning winery once again.
