BORDEAUX WINE DINNER

Bordeaux wine has a track record for aging and evolving in the bottle. Bordeaux wine also enjoys a long aging curve. As a general example, the following rule of 3 works for most Bordeaux wine. If a Bordeaux wine takes 10 years to age, it will remain at its peak for 10 years before taking 10 years to fully decline.

Join the Greater Lansing Vintners Club for an evening of unparalleled 2000 vintage wines from the best regions in Bordeaux.

Pomerol …. St. Emilion …. Margaux …. St. Julien … St. Estephe … Sauternes
