Watching the Tour de France in the chateau after we enjoyed at lunch a bottle of Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe of Chateau Croque-Michotte 1998 ... very tasty with the cheese course.

Looks like Marin or Sonoma, but it ain' t. C'est le Perigord. One major difference is the roads are well paved ... all of them.

In case you did not realize who was taking all the pictures ... making the lunches, harvesting the grapes, answering all the DAQs ... that would be me.


Okay, I'll get some "blow-back" for this, but I cannot resist. BEFORE ...
