For one day only wine lovers, sommeliers, connoisseurs, and neophytes alike can join together for an exclusive evening of tasting the newest 2010 vintages from Le Cercle Rive Droite, an organization that has brought together the most prestigious chateaux from “The Right Bank of the Gironde” estuary in the Bordeaux region. Of the 143 vineyards in the organization, 32 will be on hand to show off the crème de la crème of the year’s varietals in addition to top selections from 2009 and years past.
A silent auction will allow guests to bid on bottles and magnums of their favorite Right Bank wines. 100% of the proceeds from the silent auction will go to support Citymeals-on-Wheels.
About Cercle Rive Droite
Of the hundreds of wineries on the Right Bank, only chateaux with the most outstanding reputations for excellence are allowed membership in the elite Circle, founded in 2002. With their diverse soil types and maritime climate, the sub-regions of the Right Bank, including St.-Emilion and Pomerol, are known to possess the ultimate Merlot-growing terroir.
“Thanks to exceptional weather at the end of summer and into autumn, 2010 Merlot and Cabernet grapes had a flavor quality that has rarely been as good,” observed Bordeaux-based oenologist Michel Rolland who was able to take some of the first sips of the vineyard offerings. “The aromatic characteristics are excellent, encouraged by pH levels that bestow firm acidity, accentuating freshness. Here is a vintage we have dreamed of, given to us by nature.”
