Fete de Bordeaux 2010 – Year Two

In 2010, the Fete dinner moved to the Rainier Club, where we tasted the new 2007 vintage releases.  While I have the list of wines served thanks to our friend Bill Schallert, unfortunately, I do not have anything to actually jog my memory about the wines we drank that night.

I do recall though, that this was the year that Chateau Montrose was substituted for Cos d’Estournel on the tour, and Nicolas Glumineau joined the dinners from Chateau Montrose.  It was the first time I’d literally ever heard anyone sing for his supper – his impromptu Opera singing was very impressive indeed.

In addition to Nicolas, we were joined by Jean-Charles Cazes of Chateau Lynch Bages and Ormes de Pez, as well as Anthony Barton of Chateau Leoville Barton and Langoa Barton.  Here were the wines served:

  • Nicolas Feuillatte Brut en Magnum
  • 2007 Blanc de Lynch Bages
  • 2007 Chateau Tronquoy Lalande
  • 2007 Ormes de Pez
  • 2007 Chateau Langoa Barton
  • 2007 Chateau Montrose
  • 2000 Chateau Langoa Barton
  • 2000 Chateau Lynch Bages
  • 2000 Chateau Montrose
  • 1990 Chateau Lynch Bages
  • 1990 Leoville Barton
  • 1975 Chateau Montrose
  • 1999 Chateau Suduiraut
