Description

Join us Friday, December 15th from 6 pm to 8 pm with Cyril Frechier to dive into the elegant world of Bordeaux. We'll be tasting through 6 different Bordeaux from both Left and Right Banks. We'll discover high quality, affordable Bordeaux for around $24 and then work our way up to some of our favorite gems that are always classic show-stoppers.


There is a tasting fee for this event, as well as a raffle! The $5 tasting fee gets you entry to the tasting, a chance to win an exclusive bottle of Bordeaux, and can be used for any in-store bottle purchase. It's a no-lose tasting with the opportunity to win!


A brief blurb about Bordeaux:

Bordeaux, just the name conjures up all sorts of extraordinary wine expectations. As the fourth largest French city, the most essential controlled wine growing region (AOC) in France. Bordeaux is home to over 10,000 producers and the artisan of close to 70 million cases of wine per vintage. Bordeaux is the modern-day red wine Mecca, beckoning pilgrims near and far to scout for, speculate on and ultimately imbibe in the crown jewel, Bordeaux's exalted red wines.


This famous winemaking region’s maritime climate, celebrated parcels of land, unique collection of grape varieties, well-honed traditions and complicated classification systems all come together in a tethered trellising method to form the winemaking wonder that is Bordeaux. A land based on “banks” – left bank or right bank. These banks house both formal family roots and are home to a slew of newcomers. Both old houses and newcomers navigate layers of rules yet cultivate wines that don’t all fall in regulatory line, craft wine for futures yet grace the table with everyday wine. Bordeaux in both 'banks' have built a reputation for high-end wine, but present over 80% of its juice to the world in the “affordable” wine category at the $8-30 price point. Bordeaux is full of contrasts and more than capable of maintaining many wine expectations very well.
