The Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux Weekend: 30 May 2015

For the third consecutive year Milessima has partnered with the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux for their annual Weekend des Grands Amateurs.


The Program

IMG_0348BDThe Weekend  des Grands Amateurs is a unique opportunity to taste more than 100 wines in the heart of the Bordeaux city center, a UNESCO World Heritage site. For its 10th Edition, this popular Bordeaux wine event will be held Saturday May 30, 2015 at Hangar 14 perched the banks of the Garonne River.  In addition to meeting producers, you will have the chance to taste two different vintages, including the 2012.

The Millesima team will be on site to welcome you to our stand. Fine Wine advisors, with a strong knowledge about the wines available at the tasting, will be available to assist you in a wide variety of languages. At our stand you will be able to order the 2012 Bordeaux wines poured at the tasting as well as participate in a blind tasting.

If you discover the mystery wine from our blind tasting, you will be entered in a drawing for an opportunity to win a mystery case.

The 2012 Grands Crus de Bordeaux

IMG_0165BDThe 2012 vintage was subject to complicated climatic conditions that favored the development of fungal diseases and forced growers to increase their vigilance. However, a lovely September was conducive to ripening and upheld the hope of a good vintage. Careful sorting was important in the vineyards but the healthy grapes were able to achieve their full maturity. The wines thus have beautiful balance and great charm.
