Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux Come to DC!

I don't post a lot of weekday events and I don't post a lot of events that are more than $25, but this is an incredible opportunity and something you should all attend

It has been over a decade since the Union des Grand Crus de Bordeaux (UGC) has been in Washington DC. We are happy to announce that we will be hosting this one of a kind Grand Bordeaux Tasting.

From Bordeaux connoisseurs to wine lovers we have a very exclusive and exciting evening with over 100 of the top Grand Crus Chateaux of Bordeaux. This will be a rare opportunity to talk to the winemakers and owners of the top Grand Crus Chateaux, while being one of the first to taste the highly acclaimed 2010 vintage. The event date is Thursday, January 24, 2013 from 5-8pm and it will be held at the Willard Intercontinental Grand Ballroom

I have had a number of opportunities to try the 2010 vintage and it is as good as all the hype. This is a chance to try the 2010 vintage from more than 100 of the best producers in Bordeaux.

You can find more about the event on my blog: http://www.cellarblog.org/2012/12/the-union-des-grand-crus-de-bordeaux.html

You can buy tickets (VERY IMPORTANT: You must by tickets in advance) at Pearsons Wine (http://www.pearsonswine.com). This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity for wine lovers (even if they come back it will be with the 2011 vintage ;)).

Come! Join us!

    Looking forward to next year--if the 2011 vintage proves to be tasteworthy!

    This was fantastic! Even my girlfriend who is not much into wine enjoyed. Also, nice to taste the Rausan Segla, which was the very first good wine (1971; $43/case) that I ever had.

    Shall we all agree to meet someplace (perhaps at Pichon Lalande), say at 5:30?

    The meetup says will have to pay there - already have a ticket. Sounds like an amazing list of wines.

    Good morning everyone! I was wondering if the meetup participants meet and greet at this event? Just bought my ticket and looking forward to a great evening.

    Hello everyone, Really interested in this one. Two questions: 1) Is it fair to say that these are not inexpensive wines? 2) Any suggestions for spending the night in DC? Thanks,
