30.5 Km - Sunny day again - Barsac to Bazas Shorter distance with a later start we make our way through the Barsac and Sauternes area of Bordeaux. Although it is only 10AM we find ourselves at the lovely Chateau Haut-Bergeron where we had bought 6 bottles of their 2010 for shipment when we were in St Emillion. We get a tour of their facilities and …

Climbed to the top of the tower (260 steps) where the views of the city were good.
