Bordeaux Education Seminar
Seated & guided tasting with Cheryl Ames
Thursday, February 22, 6:30-8pm, $10* (free for wine club members)
We’re super excited to spend an evening of education and tasting wines of Bordeaux with Cheryl Ames, Midwest Regional Manager, Luneau USA.
Cheryl is Chicago based and a self-proclaimed Francophile. After working for decades representing domestic wineries including St. Supery, Geyser Peak and Scharffenberger Sparkling Wines, she jumped to imported wines and hasn’t looked back. “European wines simply make me happy. The overall balance between fruit, acidity and terroir seem to translate into a well-defined sense of place that my taste buds definitively prefer.”
One of the world’s most sought-after wines, Bordeaux has earned a reputation as being inaccessible to anyone who doesn’t have hundreds or even thousands of dollars to spend or years to wait for the bottles to mature in the cellar. But not all Bordeaux comes with a steep price tag or has aggressive tannins that need a decade to mellow out. In fact, the wine has reached a new equilibrium, where drinkers can purchase Bordeaux that really tastes like Bordeaux for $30 and less.
