Our annual Comparative Bordeaux Tasting has become a fall tradition, and we're thrilled to announce that this year we will be revisiting the 1985 and 1986 vintages. Both vintages are revered by critics and consumers alike, and will create a truly memorable comparison.

The 1985s were beguiling and forthcoming from the very beginning while the 1986s were cloaked in tannins for a much longer period. Though differing in style, both vintages are considered to be among the greatest vintages of the 20th century.

Wines will be poured from twenty Châteaux, including all five First Growths. The venue for the evening will be the beautiful Arts Club of Chicago, and a delightful assortment of canapés and hors d'oeuvres will complement the affair.
