Libourne, St. Emilion, Pomerol – Day 4

We started the day with a visit to Libourne – known for its markets.

We then rode to the town of St. Emilion (home to Château Cheval Blanc – ironically it is the merlot that Miles loved in the movie Sideways), and visited the estate and winery at Château Siaurac (wines from Pomerol and Lalande-de-Pomerol) – followed by a tasting of course. Pomerol is the smallest AOC in Bordeaux and is home to the exclusive Château Pétrus.

Our guide also told us about the Fronsac AOC, very close to St. Emilion but with wines at a fraction of the price. We tried a Fronsac at dinner the last night of the cruise and loved it.
