We are pleased to announce our Annual Bordeaux Comparative Tasting which will be held at one of Chicago’s most historic private clubs, The Casino. Traditionally our most popular tasting event of the year, this “walk-around” tasting will offer unique insight into two of the most renowned of Bordeaux vintages.

We will explore twenty wines from the famous tandem vintages 1989 and 1990. Of the twenty Châteaux represented, we will pour all five of the First Growths: Haut-Brion, Lafite-Rothschild, Latour, Margaux and Mouton-Rothschild. In addition, traditional favorites such as La Mission-Haut-Brion, Pichon-Lalande, Lynch-Bages, Cheval-Blanc and Vieux Château Certan will be included, along with a host of other wines. We will be presenting wines that have earned perfect scores of 100, most notably the 1989 Haut-Brion and the 1990 Margaux.

A Champagne reception will begin the evening promptly at 6:00pm, and we will progress to the tasting at 6:30pm.
