Do you know about Bordeaux Clairet ? Known at the time by the English as “Claret” (and they loved it), it is a typical Bordeaux red wine but very light (hence its pink/red color, between red and rosé wines). It is an officiaal French A.OC, Bordeaux clairet.
Do you know about Lamproie à la bordelaise ? This is a typical dish from Bordeaux (and quite expensive in restaurants), made with lamprey fish, leeks & red wine. My parents cook it every year, but they will have to make an exception this year due to Coronavirus). Read my article here to find out the recipe: https://french-wine-love.com/2019/04/24/bordeaux-style-lamprey-lamproie-a-la-bordelaise-a-traditional-dish-from-my-region/
Inside the museum
You will discover the history of the international reputation of Bordeaux wines, at the heart of the historic wine merchants’quarter.
The wine merchants’museum offers a visit to its cellars, which contain historical objects mixed with modern scenography to give a better understanding of Bordeaux wines. The visit is sooo informative and I recommend you to take 2 hours for both the visit + tasting.
After the visit, enjoy a commented wine tasting
Do not hesitate to visit this great museum for only 10€ (with 2 tastings)
