Food, Travel

Auf Empfehlung von Barbara haben wir die Weingüter von Jean-Charles Boisset erkundet. 5 Weingüter gehören dem gebürtigen Franzosen und wie wir ja alle wissen sind die Franzosen bekannt für guten Wein. Während DeLoach eher einfach vom Ambiete war, die Weine dafür umso edeler hatte es JCB in Healdsburg schon insich. Der wine tasting room erinnerte eher an eine Bar in Paris aber Cremant und Champagner sind dann doch nicht das was man von Frankreich kennt. Während DeLoach und JCB in Sonoma Valley zu hause sind ist Raymond das Oberklasse Produkt in Napa Valley. Ich fand die Weine nicht ganz so toll aber dafür bot der wine tasting room was für’s Auge.

Nachdem wir unseren Durst gestillt hatten, sind wir bei L’Auberge du Soleil eingekehrt. Ist unweit von Raymond entfernt. Ein Hotel & Restaurant der Relais & Chateau Gruppe, das sagt ja schon alles. Lange habe wir nicht so gut gegessen – Ambiete TOP, Aussicht TOP, Service TOP, Essen TOP!!! Wer in der Gegend ist, sollte unbedingt vorbeischauen.

On the recommendation of Barbara we explored the wineries of Jean-Charles Boisset. 5 wineries owned by the native French, and as we all know, the French are known for good wine. While the ambiance was rather simple at DeLoach, but the wines were very luxurious but JCB in Healdsburg was location wise a top choice. The wine tasting room looked more like a bar in Paris but Cremant and Champagne were not what one would expect from a french product (too little bubblies). While DeLoach and JCB are at home in Sonoma Valley Raymond vineyards is the luxury product in Napa Valley. The wine not as great as told and expected but the wine tasting room was an eye catcher.

After we had satisfied our thirst, our journey brought us to L’Auberge du Soleil – Not far from Raymond. A hotel & restaurant of the Relais & Chateau group – no further explanations needed. We have not eaten so well since a while – ambiance TOP, view TOP, service TOP, food TOP ! If one is in the area one should definitely should stop by – worth a detour.
