Announcing a 2009 Bordeaux Tasting

2009 Cru Classé Bordeaux Tasting

at the InterContinental Hotel

On January 19th, 2012, Spec’s will host over thirty Bordeaux chateau owners, directors, and/or winemakers presenting forty top-appellation Bordeaux wines all from the excellent 2009 vintage in a standup-and-walk-around tasting format. This is the first time Houston has ever hosted such a delegation from Bordeaux. The event will be held at the INTER-CONTINENTAL HOTEL. The list of well-known and highly regarded wineries has come together nicely.

The tasting will open at 4:30pm and run until 8:30pm, giving tasters ample time to taste the wines and visit with our guests from Bordeaux. The tasting will include a spread of artisanal cheeses and breads chosen to help absorb the wines and refresh the palate. We will be tasting from Riedel Degustazione glasses.
