We have only just returned from our trip to Bordeaux, and had a great time visiting the city, however, the highlight of our trip was touring the Pessac-Leognan and Sauternes/Basac region with Bruno Delmas ( BD Tours ).
Bruno arrived at our 'digs' at 9.15am and presented us with our schedule for the day. I must say we were very impressed with the way Bruno had pre arranged everything. At 10.00am we arrived at Chateau CARBONNIEUX, Grand Cru Classe Pessac- Leognan, for visit and tasting, then going on to Chateau LATOUR-MARTILLAC at 11.00am, also Grand Cru Classe Pessac-Leognan for visit and tasting. Both of these vineyards were very interesting and with help from Bruno, who speaks very good English, we learnt far more than we had ever done before about the process of wine making from 'vine to bottle'.
At 12.00 noon we stopped for lunch in a really nice retaurant LE PISTOU in Martillac then going onto Chateau COUTET at 3.00pm for visit and tasting. This Chateau being 1st Classed Growth in Barsac.
At 4.15pm Bruno had arraged for us to visit Chateau GUIRAUD also 1st Classed Growth, however, in Sauternes. Both of these Chateau visits were very informative and very much enjoyed by all in our party.
Bruno then drove us back to our 'digs' in Bordeaux, arriving at around 6.30pm.
We cannot recommend Bruno enough. His knowledge and organisation being faultless.
Thanks for a really memorable day Bruno. We will most certainly be using your services again when visiting Bordeaux.
