Wine Tasting at Chateau Neuf de Pape

Wine tasting at Chateau Neuf de Pape is unreal. Walking down from the Chateau, to an actual cave built into the hillside where wine has been stored for hundreds of years. 7 wines to taste (including 2 whites - who would have guessed?!), surrounded by dusty bottles, private lockers (for people who want to store wine for years & don't trust themselves not to drink it if they brought it home), muddy floors from the constant dankness, and an old water hole.

A bit like seeing the Holy Grail and living the good life afterwards...
