This Vintages release is showcasing Bordeaux. This release usually shows wines ranging from great values to some higher end products. If we find other interesting products don’t be surprised if we add a few other well made wines from the rest of the release to keep things interesting and challenging.
The tasting will be lead by Guild Vice President Marie France Champagne and Guild President Bill Ellis who have both spent time in Bordeaux during En Premieur week and can share some thoughts and insights into different vintages and producers with you.
