Grenoble - Risoul 177 km
One of the highlight stages this Tour, a true alpine slogfest. Three big climbs and the potential for big timegaps. Live video from Km 0.
Louison Bobet of the Day: Thibaut Pinot
Maybe the hardest stage to predict so far except for the fact that The Shark almost certainly wins it. But if he doesn't....
Amy's Wine of the Day: La Tache Saint Joseph
Syrah from a parcel between Mauve and Tournon named "Badel", an older vineyard composed of terraced granite with a cool exposure.Smoky blackberries and minerals, black pepper and firm tannins at the finish.
Re-tasted om day 3 (I missed day two, sometimes it happens): more earth. I'm pleased that I have a few more of these to revisit later.
