Bourg and Blaye – Day 5

Two picturesque little walkable towns, home to two large right bank wine regions. I had never heard of Côtes de Bourg or Côtes de Blaye but they both have some great Bordeaux wines – most of which are never exported due to their lower price point.

We had a small semi-private tour (24 people) that started at a wine bar in Blaye called La Petite Cave. It is owned by Leslie Kellen who also owns a local B&B, a tiny in-house winery, art gallery and several rentable apartments. It was adorable and makes Blaye a place we want to return to. The Côtes de Blaye wines are definitely worthy of exploration.
