Driving through the Right Bank

Rented a car today as many people had told me must go see Saint Emilion and they were right, very quaint little town with miles of grape vines in every direction. Also had a great meal at Lardon et Bouchon where they serve up Grande Cru wines by the glass so were able to try three ones hadn’t tasted previously: Tour Baladoz 2003, Cardinal Villemaurine 2007, and Clos de Prince 2009.
