Event Details

Taste Over 100 of Bordeaux Finest Wines at this
Official Grands Cru Tasting Event of the 2010 Vintage
"..2010 - An Exceptional Vintage"
*** Tickets Are Limited ***

There is only one word to express this tasting: Amazing! Bordeaux is probably the world's greatest wine region and you'll get to taste 100+ wines from one of the Greatest Vintages - Ever!
Robert Parker said 2010 may have been one of the greatest vintages in history from Bordeaux - and many of these wines were rated "exceptional" by other wine critics as well (see Quotes Below)

It has been over a decade since the Union des Grand Crus de Bordeaux (UGC) has been in Washington DC with this one of a kind tasting.
From Bordeaux connoisseurs to wine lovers we have a very exclusive and exciting evening with over 100 of the top Grand Crus Chateaux of Bordeaux.
This will be a rare opportunity to talk to the winemakers and owners of the top Grand Crus Chateaux, while being one of the first to taste the highly acclaimed 2010 vintage.

List of Wines Union des Grands Crus Bordeaux Tasting Washington, D.C.

    The 2010 Vintage is a classic and has received tremendous press from the world's most influential critics on Bordeaux wines:
     
    Robert Parker: " I have tasted enough wines from 2005, 2009 and 2010 to realize that these may be the three greatest Bordeaux vintages I have tasted in my career”.
     
    James Suckling:  "The 2010 vintage is clearly a great vintage, with dozens of exceptional wines. Some of the baby reds are chateaux's best ever, or best in decades. They will be must buys for Bordeaux lovers around the world."  
     
    Stephen Spurrier, Decanter Magazine:  “2010, the greatest Bordeaux vintage in modern times….”  and "Producers and critics are resisting saying 'best ever', but this focused, serious, age-worthy vintage ... is drawing comparisons to 1982 and even 1947."

    James Molesworth Wine Spectator: Gave the vintage 95-98 points and called it an "Exceptional Vintage"
     
    Neil Martin, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “There are grounds for the hype…2010 is a great vintage”

Special Valet Parking Available for Pre-purchase at $15/per vehicle (normally $31).
