The wines of Bordeaux have enjoyed prestige for centuries thanks to the quality associated with the vintages, in an earlier era called clarets.
Today this prestige is still present. A chateau wine from Pomerol adds luster to any dining experience, not least since they are famous for their aroma and flavors.
So it made a perfect combination to conduct a tasting called 'Grand Cercle des vins de Bordeaux with location at the highly rated Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills.
We attended this elegant affair which included chateau wineries from both the right and left bank of the Gironol River.
Wines from such famous districts as Fronsac, Saint Emilion, Pomerol, Medoc, Margaux and Saint Estepe were all represented at this tasting which was well attended by the media, restaurateurs, and beverage retailers.
Served al fresco on the patio was a buffet with both sandwiches and French cheeses as well as tasty pasta entrees.
