Wine tasting must do's in Bordeaux, Burgundy & Languedock

Hi,

We are taking a trip to France next May/June and visiting Paris and Champagne first. It is our second trip to Champagne so we know what we are doing and have organised some special visits and already done the Moets and Mumm tours.

However we are entirely new to the other wine regions of Bordeaux, Burgundy (staying in Beaune) and Languedock (taking a driving trip).

We have plenty of time in each area so wondering what the must see wineries / chateaus are? What wine should we taste while we have the opportunity? Are there fantastic wines that you would pay 30 Euros to taste (have seen this price on one wine shop for the high end tasting)?

Like in Champagne probably one big mass production tour (if such exists there) would probably be good and then contrast with a small producer.

We come from Australia and we like the styles of wine that these areas produce - well at least the Australian equivalents - so looking forward to tasting the genuine French ones.

Thanks everyone for the help,

Dale.
