Tonight is the annual Fete du Bordeaux dinner and tasting in Seattle. This is the sixth time we’ve attended the dinner – but the first time I’ve had to go alone! I remember the first one we went to, actually, Bob had to talk me into going for some reason…but never again. It’s a great dinner and a great opportunity to try some very nice wines.
Alas, they moved the standing date this year, and Bob is out of town in Tucson for his annual gem show which is a bummer for both of us (diamonds or wine, diamonds or wine – such a dilemma!). I suspect he’d rather be at the dinner though. Frankly, I’d rather have him here!
While I certainly have my opinions about what wine I like, the reason we can write up such detailed reviews on this blog is all Bob – the most you’ll likely get from me is a vote about my wine of the night (and perhaps an amusing story or two). I guess we’ll see!
In the meantime – here are links to the line-ups from years past:
Tonight we’ll taste the 2011’s. It’ll be interesting to see how they compare to the 09 and 10’s that have gotten so much acclaim. Must’ve been a hard act to follow for the winemakers – though my guess is, the wine will be more than just fine.
More soon! Well, some pictures maybe – we’ll see what I can come up with…!
