As it happened, while we were in St. Emilion, there was a convention of fireworks manufacturers in nearby Bordeaux. Happpily, there was a demonstration by a Chinese manufacturer in St. Emilion. The town was packed as they set off the fireworks from the old tower. They turned off the street lights in the  town to maximize effect. 

The fireworks were fantastic, as they should be from the land that invented them. They were coordinated with music (not synchronized) and there were varieties I had never seen before. 

The last flurry lit up the whole sky.

A magical night for us, since fireworks have a special significance.
