Giant Bordeaux Tasting Planned For London
Londoners with a hankering to get an early taste of the 2009 Bordeaux vintage can get the inside oenological track at Lords Cricket Ground, St John's Wood on April 21. That's when Bibendum, one of the leading premium wine merchants in the UK, will hold a one-night-only tasting. The capital's largest Bordeaux tasting is a chance to preview more than 150 wines en primeur and to meet the winemakers and chateaux owners who created them. Over 85 chateaux including Lynch Bages, Leoville Barton, Montrose, Angelus, Pontet Canet, Cheval Blanc, and Pichon Baron will be pouring the 2009 vintage alongside more mature vintages to add context. Tickets are available from Bibendum and cost £30 each.
