We went to the Sauterne wine cooperative and tasted several of the legendary wines. We could have bought a bottle of 2005 Chateau d'Yquem for 700 euros but demurred. We did buy a very fine bottle of Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey (according to the lady in the coop, it was "just under" Yquem) which we've been enjoying with dessert.
We picked up Tom Grumbly in Bordeaux -- he'd been at a conference and was able to take off a couple of days and join us. The weather is supposed to improve (we saw stars this evening -- maybe the sun tomorrow!). We have touring plans (wine tasting, of course) to St. Emillon and other spots in the area over the next couple of days. Then we're off for Normandy with Tom, dropping him at Caen to go back to Paris and home.
Maybe we'll have more pics tomorrow in the sunshine.
