Diane Moore / Pg Cruises / April, 2011

Dear Isabelle and Bertrand,

Bill and I are almost home in Seattle after a wonderful few days in Bordeaux – thanks to both of you! The weather cooperated throughout and we so enjoyed touring the various regions around Bordeaux and of course learning about (and tasting) many wonderful wines.

Our day in the Medoc region was wonderful – starting with a great tour at Kirwan. I had only had one day in Bordeaux before this week, and we had an evening event at the Chateau. We loved the tour and the wine was one of our favorites. The afternoon at Legrange was equally fascinating.

The next day in St. Emilion was marvelous. Franc Mayne was beautiful and we couldn’t believe the underground caves! We then went into the village and walked around, enjoying lunch. But one of our highlights was our tour at Figeac – we are on the search for this wine at home now!

And our bonus day in the Graves region – we had a delightful morning at Chateau Haut Bailey, but I have to say the afternoon at Chateau Chevalier was our most enjoyable. The winemaker himself spent the afternoon with us – imparting his passion for the art of wine and the love of what he does. We were there almost 2 hours and we will definitely find this wine soon.

Thank you both for making our trip to Bordeaux so memorable!

Warm regards,
Diane and Bill
