Paulliac – Day 6

Time for the left bank, or Rive Gauche, home of the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855(

We were docked in Paulliac but toured the Medoc from north to south. We saw Château Margaux (Premiers Crus), Château Lafitte Rothschild (Premiers Crus) and stopped for a tasting at Château Marquis de Terme (Quatrièmes Crus).

We had a lovely dinner at Chateau Kirwan (Troisièmes Crus). It was a catered by our ship’s kitchen staff who had to haul everything to the estate for a dinner for almost 200 people. It was an amazing feat of planning and execution, given that they weren’t given access to the property that day until 4:00pm and we ate at 7:00pm. Oh – the Chateau Kirwan estate wines were excellent!
