Luxe Life: Bordeaux Tour de Force

Tour one of the world's most famous wine regions in style, with long-time Bordeaux resident James Lawther, MW, as your guide.



Touring Bordeaux on your own can be great fun, but it won’t be the lifetime highlight you will experience touring with James Lawther, MW, an English native and long-time Bordeaux resident. Simply put, Lawther is well connected, so his tour, from September 3–7, 2012, will have stops at Châteaux d’Yquem, Cheval Blanc, Latour, Palmer, Le Bon Pasteur (Michel Rolland), Ducru-Beaucaillou (pictured), Domaine de Chevalier, Raymond-Lafon, Teyssier, Smith Haut Lafitte and the négociant Millesima. The tour will feature Michelin-starred dining, including the two-star Hostellerie de Plaisance in St.-Émilion, lodging for four nights at the luxurious Les Sources de Caudalie, plus a tour of the medieval city of St.-Émilion. “This year, we added a visit and lunch at Château Teyssier, producer of Le Dôme and other single-vineyard wines,” Lawther says. “The owner, Jonathan Malthus, is larger than life.” Cost per person, double occupancy, is $3,500, including tax, plus airfare. This and other tours are available at finevintageltd.com.
