As many of you may know, I was recently fortunate enough to visit Bordeaux. I was, naturally enough, on a visit to learn more about the wines and estates of Bordeaux, as a guest of the CIVB (Conseil Interprofessionnel du Vin de Bordeaux).  I owe the CIVB thanks for this great opportunity, and will address the wines in future emails, but today I wanted to take this chance to share some images of Bordeaux, the city.

After a long program of improvement, the city of Bordeaux has transformed itself into a simply spectacular place in which to enjoy the French lifestyle. All cleaned up, with a new system of trams and busses replacing darting automobiles, as well as new underground parking facilities freeing up the streets for pedestrian malls, it’s now a great walking city.
