Salut! It’s time to toast up a storm in the world capital of wine, well the second-largest wine-growing wine region in the world to be exact. A visit to Bordeaux would therefore not be complete without touring the vineyards and sampling the local wines on offer. Among the most renowned châteaux worth a visit are Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Latour and Château Haut Brion. But of course the Bordelais would be quick to point out there’s more to this French gem than a little tipple. Bordeaux is renowned for being an historic city; so much so that it has achieved UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Among those historical attractions on offer are the Roman Victory Arch, the La Victoire Square that was originally established in 1302, and the 394m-long Aquitaine Bridge.
Canelé, also known as the gilded pastry of Bordeaux, a small French pastry cake with a soft custard in the middle and a thick caramelized crust.
