Annual Comparative Bordeaux Tasting
Vintages 1990 and 2000

Friday, September 20, 2013

980 N. Michigan Ave,
Chicago, Illinois

$500 per person


Please join us for our annual Comparative Bordeaux Tasting as we celebrate the benchmark 1990 and 2000 vintages. Revered by critics and consumers alike, these vintages are considered two of the best in the last 30 years. The tasting will feature 40 wines from 20 top Châteaux.

The 2000 Bordeaux vintage has often been cited as the greatest since 1990, and comparing the two side-by-side will provide a unique tasting experience. With 13 and 23 years of maturity respectively, the wines have developed to express the complexity, fruit and balance of these great clarets.

Of the twenty Châteaux represented, we will pour all five of the First Growths: Haut-Brion, Lafite Rothschild, Latour, Margaux and Mouton Rothschild. They will be joined by traditional favorites La Mission Haut-Brion, Cheval Blanc, Pichon-Lalande, Lynch-Bages, and Léoville-Las-Cases. The 1990 & 2000 Margaux, 1990 Montrose and 2000 La Mission Haut-Brion have all earned the elusive 100-point score.
