Elaine from VINO Las Vegas attends a private tasting of the Right Bank of Bordeaux
One of the highlights of attending
Showcase 2008 was attending the
private wine tasting organized by
Regency Wines and Sopexa.
The Right Bank wines from Saint Emilion , Fronsac and Pomerol
were all featured as well as many of the winemakers themselves.
Charlie Palmer's Stirling Club at Turnberry Place provided the
class and sophistication that this event required.
When we arrived that the event we could not help but be impressed by the large marble staircase and a Grand Piano at the entrance to the club. We walked into the ballroom and our eyes were intimidately drawn to the wines lined up at a table in front of us.
As we walked over to the table we started
to read the labels. Chataeu Cotes De Puyblanquet , Chateau Franc Grace-Dieu,
Chateau La Valade Canon Fronsac ,
Chateau Lagrange , Chateau La Gravette De Certan Pomerol 04 which happens to
be the 2nd label of Vieux Chateau Certan.
We continued to walk down the line of these great wines of Bordeaux and
noticed Chateau Moulin de Lavaud and Clos des Menuts Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.
The name Bordeaux derives from au bord de l' eau meaning " along the waters" The food , wine and venue provided all that were invited a very special evening with some very special wines.
