It's less of a glam event and more of a circle of friends tasting but always very good.mikulski, Lafon and co wines. This is part of James tour of burgundy tastings. If you are interested pls email vicky at vicky@handford.net We are def going. Best A Below is the BBR link for you but not much to show in October . http://www.bbr.com/Categories/Events/c/events?q=%3Aevents-eventDate-asc%3AinStockFlag%3Atrue%3AeventMonth%3AOctober+2016&text=&facetPrefix=&pageSize=30#

I haven't been to Bocuse in a long time so can't fairly compare, but Troisgros is my favorite restaurant so would highly recommend it. Plus they are moving in a year or two from their current location, so a visit before then is certainly worthwhile.

  • gsquireh says:

    2/6/2015 8:07:00 PM - Thanks you your message. My passion for wine and my early years teaching and writing allow me to have fun with the tasting notes. I love your notes - especially the 02 Leflaive BBM, "This is crystalline minerality from Poseidon's spear luxuriating in the mouth ". I think that is the best thing I have ever read.

    2/13/2014 11:54:00 PM - and we can open a bottle or two if you pass through Hong Kong.

  • cgrimes says:

    11/14/2013 6:29:00 PM - Sorry I didn't get back to you about coming to your tasting. I hope it went well. Life has been a bit crazy lately. Keep me in mind if you have any future CT gatherings.

  • Robbie K says:

    11/1/2013 2:28:00 AM - Took your advice Englishman's Claret and picked up a couple of the '09's. The '10's are due to arrive any day now. Interesting to hear that you found the '09 more typical in style. I will have to pop the corks on them both in the coming weeks to compare notes.

  • Robbie K says:

    10/23/2013 4:04:00 AM - I see you have a number of different vintages of Talbot. I have a couple of bottles of the 2010 on order. I've heard good things about it. Let me know your thoughts on it when you have tasted it.

    9/4/2013 2:53:00 PM - Looks like you are having a great 2013 on your mission to drink good old Bordeaux. I would like to try and put together a Boston area offline this fall/winter. Would you like to help? I have a couple of folks I can recruit but need a group of 8 or so for a proper tasting event.
