Bordeaux is widely known as a town of wine. High-quality red wines are produced with poor soil. There are four chateaus visited for the field study B.
Chateau Cheval Blanc
The field of Cheval Blanc,characterized by gravel and argillaceous soil allow a production of high-quality wine by restricting the quantity of grapes.
Because of a slightly hilly geographical feature,drainage is good in Figeac. It is good to retain the lean soil.
Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande
Chateau Mouton Rothschild
Both white and red wines are produced in Bourgogne, and about 200 million bottles are sold each year. The vineyard is smaller than that of Bordeaux and Champagne. 60 percent of the produced wines are sold by negiciants, and the rest 40 percent are directly sold by producers. The visited place is as follows.
Domaine simon bize
Bouchard Pere et Fils
Here is a castle built in the 15th century now keeping wines. The underground is like a tunnel, and a lot of wines were displayed there.
We visited Mont-Saint-Michel, Arch of Triumph, and the Eiffel Tower, etc.
Both beautiful despite the little cloudy weather.
