We will be there in Sept. Before we write for appointments, I'd like to hear what Bordeaux wine-tasting appointments are like. Can I be presumptuous enough to say we'll be near your estate on x day at roughly y time and would like to have an appointment then or will they simply tell me when they are ready to receive me and I'd better arrange to get there then? Is the appointment automatically for a tour and a tasting or just the latter? How long does one normally stay at a single chateau if there's only 1 or 2 wines to taste? My guide indicates that some are free and some have a fee. Where they have fees, do you purchase a full glass, or how does that work? Anything that helps me understand the difference between a tasting say in Napa and in Bordeaux (Medoc, Pomerol, St. Emilion) would be very much appreciated.
