Tasting - Spotlight Right Bank Bordeaux 2017

Pomerol, St. Emilion, and Satellites:  Exploring Bordeaux’s Right Bank
Thursday, March 16 @ 7pm
Course Fee $50


No, we won’t be pouring extravagant wines like Petrus or nearly mythical bottlings like Le Pin.  But during this trip along the west bank of the River Gironde – Bordeaux’s “Right Bank” – you will gain a new appreciation for the power of Merlot when grown on Bordeaux’s gravel, clay, and limestone soils.

Because wines from Bordeaux’s Right Bank traditionally ended up in Paris and the Low Countries instead of England, these wines were long seen as inferior to their Cabernet-dominant neighbors to the west.  While the elite wines have now caught up (or, in many cases, surpassed) Right Bank wines in terms of price and global demand, there is still more fine value to be found here than in any great wine region of the world.

Join us as we get to know the velvety wines of Fronsac, the perfumed beauties of St.  Emilion, and the plush powerhouses of Pomerol.  And delight in the superb (and lovely young) values from Bourg & Blye and the regions called “Satellites” to Pomerol and St. Emilion.  Steven Schattman returns to help us understand the region and wines as we enjoy light snacks and plenty of great conversation.
