Enchanting St. Emilion

Grand Cru Châteaux and St. Emilion

(9 hours) From: 9.30 am to 6.30 pm. Everyday (except Sunday) from March 15th through October 31st.

St. EmilionTwo hours via high speed TGV rail from Paris brings you to lovely Bordeaux.  Growers in the region are divided into Right Bank and Left Bank appellations, depending which side of the Garonne River they are located. As with any grape-growing region, it’s all about the soil.  As such, grapes are almost all Merlot grapes, with a bit of Cabernet Franc and a few Malbec plantings.  It's a day of wine and enchanting villages. 

After your 9:00 am arrival via train from Paris, you’ll meet your guide at the Bordeaux Tourist Office for a day which includes:

  • 3 Classified growth chateau tastings, all tasting fees included.
  • Transfer between castles and vineyards with an English-speaking driver guide
  • A walking tour of St. Emilion and van tour of the countryside and small villages.

Generous amount of time set aside for lunch (not included).  

Medoc or St. Emilion? Here is our take:

Margaux, Saint Julien, Pauillac or the Haut Medoc appellations are the focus of the Medoc region. Of the grape varieties permitted, 50% of the viticultural area is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and to a lesser extent Petit Verdot and Malbec. The tastings are always at least classified growth or Grand Cru - that speaks to the depth of the wine estate's experience/wine making style. They can’t be thus designated unless they have a long and independently verified history of superior wines.

Keep in mind enthusiasts know what grapes they love and won’t miss out on them. If you like both or just want a lovely day, you might lean more toward St. Emilion because of the extra pretty villages and ancient history. It is the oldest active wine producing appellation dating from Roman times. It has the oldest active wine society of France, Les Jurades, dating from 1199. It is also one of the first regions to export wine, in the 14th Century. Pomerol is a premier grape, a personal favorite of us at LinkParis.com.

John R. LinkParis.comWhy we love Bordeaux - It took me three trips to fall in love with Bordeaux.  I was too busy the first two times to appreciate the region.  On the third trip I was able to take a breath and thought "wow, this is a beautiful place".  With a direct train just two hours each way, Bordeaux is a perfect addition to a Paris vacation. - John
