SAUTERNES & PESSAC-LEOGNAN

On the third morning, we will start the day by a stop in Pessac-Leognan to taste delicious top white wine and red (a blend of Cabernet-Sauvignon and Merlot). Then we head to the amazing area of Sauternes where we will get to try world-class wines, with lunch at the winery. There's a good chance that it'll be harvesting time for the grapes in Sauternes, so it's really a very unique time to visit.

Goodbye aperitif with plenty of good wines, cheese & charcuterie.
