Where: Bordeaux’s Chateau Teyssier (St. Emilion), La Poudette (Pujols-sur-Dordogne).
Who: Natasha and Oliver/Luke and Anna/Marilyn/Barney
Why: A weeklong trip to the southwest of France, where the Clegg family congregated, along with now-seasoned 1-year-old traveler Barney. Morning drinks at the Maltus’ Chateau Teyssier (recently awarded 100 points by Robert Parker), where champagne, cooled in the pool, was followed by steak and oysters at the incomparably low-key and delicious La Poudette, and, finally, a snail-paced walk to burn it all off.
