Hart Davis Hart Wine Co. is thrilled to invite you to an exciting Comparative Bordeaux Tasting in Los Angeles featuring the outstanding 1995 and 1996 vintages. During this walk-around tasting, we’ll compare wines from 20 top Châteaux including La Mission Haut-Brion, Cheval Blanc, and all five First Growths.

The weather for the 1995 vintage consisted of a mild winter and early spring followed by a dry, hot summer. The best wines are very ripe and display good concentration and structure. The weather patterns for the 1996 vintage were unusual for a great year - warm and dry in June and July and then cool and damp throughout much of August. The wines from ‘96 are rich, complex, and beautifully balanced, packed with ripe, pure fruit.

We hope you can join us as we taste and explore these great vintages.
