Sauntering in Sauternes
Pretty hilltop château with perhaps a potential for making sweet wine?
We left Langon yesterday and headed to Pauillac to spend the weekend with friends before heading back up to the Loire early next week. It was a lovely morning and on the way there we had a quick saunter through some of Sauternes. Quite a contrast to Saint-Emilion which was packed with visitors, this charming wine region had very few yesterday morning.

We dropped into the well organised and helpful Maison du Sauternes and bought a small selection.
