bordeaux :: wine more time

27 December 2014

If you follow my Instagram, you'll know that I am currently in Bordeaux, France! We are spending a week in this beautiful (and seriously, I mean beautiful - I am in love) city over Christmas. It's somewhere I had never been before, so a gathering with some of E's family here was a good excuse to visit and explore.

We had a couple of days by ourselves before the rest of the group started to arrive, so we had a relaxing time just wandering around and sightseeing. On our first night, recommended by the landlady of our apartment, we went to Wine More Time - a little place that's perfect for good wine, cheese and charcuterie.

Their menu is affordable and easy to navigate for people like us, who like wine but are not experts! They give you their top recommendations of the week from over 300 bottles, and the one we chose - a Bordeaux wine, Château Courréges 2007 - was excellent. 

Of course, we also had a spread of delicious meat and cheese, in true French style - it was all top quality and we even ordered a second platter of cheese, it was so good. Let me tell you, I had been suffering from a strange stomach-or-something bug just prior to leaving London, and I was so glad it had finally gone so I could enjoy this!

It's located in the centre of town, clearly a popular spot as it was pretty full the whole evening. We might even go back there another night as it was exactly what we were after - a chilled out, reasonably priced dinner with great wine, food and ambience.

As this post goes live, we will have just made it home from Bordeaux so sadly can't take on any recommendations for this trip, but hopefully I will have some souvenir stories to share with you in case this city is in your future travel plans. It should be - it's quite a gem.
