Just down the road was the most unique chateau we've seen, Cos D'Estournel.
Other chateaus were sprinkled along our meandering route.
There are a number of different architectural styles represented, but the buildings are relatively new and date from the 1800's. We stopped for lunch in St. Stephe and the rain started as we ate under the shelter of a bandstand at the school. We rode back to Pauillac in the rain and were glad when we got under cover. We ended our day by watching a very exciting stage of the Tour de France on TV, a gutty performance by all the favorites. Tomorrow we leave Pauillac and we will finish on the north side of the River Gironde.
