Saint-Emilion, June 2018 – Our Bordeaux wine-tasting journey was pretty amazing, but just when we thought that it couldn’t get any better, our guide brought us to the breath-taking La Terrasse Rouge. The restaurant is on the top floor of the modern winery designed by arhictect Jean Nouvel, with a “landscape” created with glistening red glass pebbles.
La Terrasse Rouge is also called “Table du Château La Dominique”, as it is part the estate of Château La Dominique. From the restaurant, we had a very good view of the neighboring vineyard, Chateau Cheval Blanc.
We ordered the fixed menu for lunch (Euro 32++) – lentil salad, beef bourguignon and fruit soup.
The beef bourguignon was one of the best I have ever had. And look at the size of those carrots!
The dessert, which had lots of berries and some meringue, tasted better than it looked.
Needless to say, La Terrasse Rouge had an impeccable wine list!
