Le Bô Bar Wine Bar in Bordeaux

IMG_2879

When we reached our waypoint in Bordeaux, what other thing could come into my mind but wine? It was too late though for a chateaux visit that day, and since we haven’t done any research on the city prior our arrival either we just strived through the streets of Bordeaux, admiring the buildings whilst keeping an eye open for a nice wine bar at the same time.
And we were lucky. On the small square Place Saint-Pierre we came across the “Bô Bar” which was packed with happy people and instantly looked tempting. One tiny table was left and we quickly seized our chance. First we had to order some food of course and the friendly waitress quickly brought us a nice ham and paté platter which was delicious but of course, here it is all about the wine.

And there is something particular about this wine bar. In fact, it is the way you order the wine. You just tell the waitress what style of wine you crave and she would surprise you with her choice; it is only later that the chef will reveal the label. Now that is a method pleasing the blindtaster I am (or should be more often). It is definetely fun and it guarantees some variety especially if you’re ready to play this game a longer time ;). So if you’re in Bordeaux, this is definetely a nice place to drop by (and they also have real Basque food on the menu!)

Finally here is a wine I kind of liked and wanted to remember. A white Vouvray named “La dilettante” by Pierre Breton, a winemaker totally commited to byodinamic winemaking. It was a simple wine but with enough personnality to impress. I decided I got to keep an eye on Breton’s wine and occasionaly taste some more.
