Enjoy the Wineries of Bordeaux
"IT'S FANTASY FRIDAY - AS GOOD A TIME AS ANY TO DREAM!"
One day I will indulge my taste for beautiful wine and savour a glass of Château Angélus amid the vines and estates of historic Bordeaux in France. I will taste the terroir of Bordeaux's unique Saint-Émilion appellation in each sparkling drop and thank the wine gods of the region for the rich and well-drained calcium soils and Atlantic climate that produced such a delectable treat. I will pair my Château Angélus with a sharp cheddar purchased at one of the many local markets, and this will be a perfect moment!
With a vineyard area of over 120,000 ha, Bordeaux is the largest wine-producing region in France. In addition to its size, Bordeaux also produces some of the most prestigious and most expensive wines in the world - leaning heavily toward production of reds or clarets. If you're a red wine lover, this is the place to be!
Fantasy Friday - and putting my dreams into written form - has a wonderful way of making me believe they will actually happen. Some day, perhaps in the distant future, I will savour wine in Bordeaux. In the meantime, I can savour Château Angélus in my garden, close my eyes, and imagine a warm summer day in the vineyards. (At $250 a bottle I will start saving now!)
