Moxie and I took a trip to France which started out in Bordeaux.  Once settled into the hotel we started our wine adventure with a taste of the local wares.  Our bar had a by-the-glass program of several delicious classified Crus that I worked through.  Dinner was fabulous and included a bottle of Graves.  We had to prepare ourselves for the next two days- visits to Chateau Lynch Bages, Cos D’Estournel and Guiraud as well as a pit stop in St. Emilion.  Dining was unbelievable, the wines were impeccable and scenery was pretty cool.  The only drawback being the rain for the first two days.  Overall it was a great three days in wine country followed by a hi-speed train to Paris, passing through the Loire Valley and catching a glimpse of the Vouvray appellation.  Stay tuned for more posts on this amazing trip.  Salut….
