Welcome !

Based on BORDEAUX you will find many articles and informations about my city, but not only ! I like travelling, discovering, and sharing, that is the reason of the website. If you want to know more about me, you can click-here.

On this blog you will find the most prestigious properties of Bordeaux, the 1855 Grands-Crus-Classés,  wines from Saint-Emilion and Pomerol during différent tastings and events. But Bordeaux is not only this. It is also nice discoveries, meetings with authentic winemakers, and infamous appellations but with very famous wines (at very good value for money) ! 

But we do not limit ourselves to Bordeaux. We will travel, discover, and share the incredible world of wine and gastronomy. Everywhere I will find a nice thing, I will share you my discoveries !

I wish you will enjoy to read my blog, as I had the pleasure to write my articles.
