Wine tour is a must-do in Bordeaux. My husband & I joined the half-day tour to Sanit Emilion lead by Francois. Francois was attentive and enthusiastic about wine. He spoke very fluent English, and had good knowledge in movies, sports, and American culture.
Francois created a wine mixing session for us - we tasted a Merlot and a Cabernet Sauvignon separately, both not aged yet. We compared our preferences, then mixed the two win in different ratios, and then tasted "our wines". The exercise was fun, and gave us appreciation for winemaker's job.
We arrived at the second tasting place at nearly 5pm. Francois brought a tray of snacks (cheese, meat, almonds, apricots, bread) for us to taste with the wine. That was so attentive of him! We gobbled down everything.
Francois also gave us a few great recommendations from wine bars to restaurants which we enjoyed. I recommend joining the tour towards the beginning of your stay so that you'll have time to visit the guide's recommendations.
