St. Emilion - update

A few posts ago I told you that we were eliminating CDP and staying in Bordeaux and St. Emilion for 4 nights and that I wasn't sure if Chateau Monlot had a room available for all three nights. They do - unfortunately after many exchanges (hate the language and time difference barriers) - we booked our chosen room for 2 nights at 98Euros and a suite for 130 Euros. Ouch. (yes, that means we have to switch rooms) But, at this point, we're talking about a Saturday night stay and everything is booked so rather than search, I just took the hit on the one night stay. Its done and its a Grand Cru vineyard, there could be worse things!

I've still not booked Burdundy yet - I didn't get responses from all the places I emailed and so I sent a few more out yesterday. Hopefully we can get that hammered out in the next day or two. Then I just need to pick out the wineries we're going to visit.

In the end, it'll be fun to have a suite for that one night. You're going to have so much fun.

I'm hopeful that it will be a lot nicer....because afterall, that's a bottle of Bordeaux we can't buy!
