The right bank is perhaps the best place for a wine aficionado to visit. Saint-Émilion is located a few kilometers from Libourne, which is a mid-size town with major grocery stores, cheese shops and a wonderful open-air market. The lovely village sits on top of a hill and begs for your visit. Personally, I have fallen in love with it!
As you drive away from Libourne, you start climbing a steep hill and soon see the magical names of châteaux whose wines you have partaken of or are dreaming to sample: Canon, Beau-Séjour Bécot, Ausone, Pavie-Macquin, Pavie, Angélus, Barde-Haut, Tertre Roteboeuf and so many others.
