Itinerary for Dordogne and Bordeaux

We are planning a trip to Bordeaux and Dordogne at end of August for about 10 days.
Need help/critique of itinerary.

Fly into Paris Orly, take a shuttle to the train station and high speed train to Bordeaux. Meet up with friends in Bordeaux, they are flying with different airline into different airport in Paris.
Day 1 (actually what's left of it) - city of Bordeaux
Day 2 - morning in Bordeaux, then rent a car and off to Arcachon
Day 3 and morning of Day 4 - Arcachon
Day 4 afternoon - off to Dordogne
Day 5,6,7 - Dordogne
in Dordogne - river towns, Sarlat and markets, caves, Rocamadour
Day 8,9 - Bordeaux wine country (route de vin)
Day 10 - our friends are off to Paris, we have 2 more days to stay in the area.
We are planning to take a wine tour to get some experience with the wines and wineries and now I am thinking may be switching the order and visit Bordeaux wine country first and then Dordogne. That may prepare us better for wine and food experiences in Dordogne. Does it make sense? Or those two regions are so different in terms of food and wine that it won't help us?
what are recommendations for caves. Font de Gaume replied (though mostly in French) that they are sold out till end of September. Ouch! what are the other caves that you would recommend? I know that Lascaux is the most grand but it's a replica. I would want something authentic, but also something that leaves impression.
thanks in advance
