Speaker: Harriet Lembeck, President Wine & Spirits Program

We tasted 10 Bordeaux from 1990, 1995 and 2005 including 3 first growths.

Prices are medium NY area prices found on the web. We asked for one vote for favorite for Flight I, Flight II, and two votes for Flight III. Château Haut-Brion 1995 was the favorite for Flight I. Château Clerc Milon 1995 was the favorite for Flight II. Château Latour 1995 was the favorite for Flight III and Chateau Lynch Bages 1990 placed second favorite for Flight III. All but two wines showed well. It was an amazing tasting of great wines.

The monteray jack cheese was provided by Cabot Cheese of Vermont.
