On Tuesday, October 24 at 7pm, please join me, Spec’s fine wine buyer Bear Dalton, in welcoming Diane Flamand, winemaker for DBR (Domaine Baron Rothschild – Latite), to the Wine School at l’Alliance Française for a tasting of DBR’s excellent wines. The net proceeds will benefit The Houston Area Women’s Center (see below).
Diane makes the wines sold under the Domaine Baron Rothschild label for the Ch. Lafite branch of the Rothschild family. She is an entertaining and informative speaker with in depth knowledge of the high quality commodity business of Bordeaux who has elevated these wines she is responsible for. I have heard her speak to groups so I can assure that both she and the wines will be well received.
We will taste:
Champagne Barons de Rothschild Brut NV
DBR Reserve Speciale Bordeaux Blanc
DBR Reserve Speciale Bordeaux Rouge
DBR Reserve Speciale Medoc
DBR Reserve Speciale St. Emilion
DBR Reserve Speciale Pauillac
Moulin de Duhart, Pauillac
Château de Cosse, Sauternes
To buy your ticket, please contact Susan at 713-854-7855 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost of this class is a $20 donation (cash or check only please) to the Houston Area Women’s Center.
