As some of you may already know, I was in France last week, specifically in the Beaujolais region of central France. I will be writing much more about my trip soon, but here are a few more pictures from the trip….
I love doors, particularly when red. This one is in the medieval town of Oignt.
I have not shared many pictures of the food on the trip, but it did not suck.
Looked who popped in for lunch! Franck Dubœuf himself.
Did I mention I like doors? Clos des Quatre Vents, Fleurie, Beaujolais.
Nicole Descombes Savoye is a force of nature at Jean-Ernst Descombes in Morgon. Here, she is pouring us a 1970 wine, one of the first wines produced in conjunction with Georges Dubœuf.
We eventually left the Beaujolais and headed north to the Mâconnais, where we climbed La Roche de Solutré…
…where we had a bit of wine…
…and took a few pictures…
…like this one.
One of our last stops was Domaine du Bois Rosier, which had some of the best Chardonnay of the trip (I had to buy a bottle).
It is also where Becca Yeamans-Irwin (the Academic Wino) felt the urge to climb into a cement tank.
The place is teeming with cyclists, for good reason. I will have to return, this time with my bike.
More to come soon!
