So, we have spent the last couple of days mostly going to wine tastings with some yummy meals mixed in!
We visited: Marc Sorrel, M. Chapoutier, Alain Voge, and Franck Balthazar on Monday.
It’s hard to go into detail about each one, but the wines were very good. I especially like visiting the small wineries and meeting the winemakers.
While we were at Marc Sorrel, they suggested going to visit a chocolate factory called Valrhona. I mean, who would say no to that?
After the wine tastings on Monday, we drove to the restaurant Régis & Jacques MARCON. It is a Michelin restaurant that is based on mushrooms. We stayed in a hotel near the restaurant to avoid having to drive the winding road at night!
On Tuesday, we did multiple other tastings at: Yves Cuilleron, Domaine Rostaing, and Domaine Gonon.
They were all excellent and, often, the winemaker is the one doing the tasting.
This is a very busy time in the area due to harvest and vinification. It was very nice of them to take time to visit with us.
Tomorrow, we leave for Nice. We are going to stop along the way at different towns. The drive is about 4 hours so it’s going to be a long day.
We will spend 4 nights in Nice then back home!
