Going behind the scenes in St Emilion with Nicolle Croft

Gastrology joined wine expert and author Nicolle Croft on a journey through the wine region of St Emilion in Bordeaux, where we gained a deep understanding of this famous appellation - from the soil, to the making of wine, the different vintages and the often confusing classification systems.

Brasserie Bordelaise -  Located in the heart of Bordeaux, this restaurant serves Bordeaux classics executed to perfection. Find beautifully cooked Entrecote steak and thick homemade chips to enjoy over a few glasses of Bordeaux wine.

Bar a Vin -  A hop and a skip away from the Bordeaux Tourist office, Bar a Vin is a wonderdul place to experience new wine and chat with knowledgeable staff within a relaxed setting. Glasses start at 2 Euro and cheese platters at 6 Euro (you really can't go wrong here).

Creperie Reno - At Creperie Reno's the crepes are all that these beauties should be. Perfectly thin, crisp with expertly judged toppings.

Baillardran - Baillardran is a speciality store serving the region's famous canelés,  You will love these small French pastries that boast a soft and tender custard centre and a dark, thick caramelised crust.
