 Bordeaux on a Budget


Fine Bordeaux Wines On A Budget?

It’s Not An Oxymoron!

The AWS Showcases Budget Bordeaux!


Sunday, June 24, 2018

4 p.m.

The Woodcroft Community Center

Durham, NC


Presenter: Ira Blumenthal, Triangle Chapter President


For our June tasting we will visit Bordeaux, arguably the premier wine region of France.  Over the years, and particularly in recent years, the prices of Bordeaux have risen to, in some cases, astronomical amounts.  Nevertheless, there are still some affordable wine “bargains” to be had.  In this tasting of Bordeaux wines, we will concentrate on affordable wines with prices such that most of us might consider buying them.

We will visit all the wine producing areas of Bordeaux including the left bank, right bank and Graves.  We will taste both red and white wines with an emphasis on the reds.  We will have a surprise welcome “wine” from Bordeaux that most of us will find new and different.

The wines will be selected by Thomas Thorne of Wine Fifty-Five who selected the wines for the December tasting of Washington State wines.  Thomas has traveled and tasted extensively in Bordeaux and knows the area and its wines.  Please join us on our tour of affordable Bordeaux.

Please bring a dish of your choice or a bottle of wine to share after the tasting.  Remember to label your dish if it contains any of the following ingredients: anchovies, coconut, mustard, cheese, garlic, onions, or gluten.
