On March 8th, 2012, 35 of the most prestigious wineries of Le Cercle Rive Droite de Grands Vins de Bordeaux will be sampling the outstanding 2009 vintage and previous vintages at the French Consulate in New York.

Wines will be paired with a selection of wine-friendly hors d'oeuvres and French pastries, including authentic Bordeaux canelés by Patissiere Céline Legros, recently described as the "new sweet addiction” by Bon Appetit. To further underscore the authentic Gallic experience, live French music will be played throughout. During the tasting, Master of Wine Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan will challenge guests with a series of “wine games” including blind tastings, aroma quizzes, and vintage comparisons. 

The event will take place in the grand salons of the French Consulate, an imposing limestone mansion at 934 Fifth Avenue (between 74th and 75th Street), where guests will be able to admire a magnificent 18th century Gobelin tapestry and other important works of art. 

Founded in 2002, the Cercle Rive Droite www.cerclerivedroite.com is comprised of 139 chateaux and 19 appellations located on the right bank of the Gironde, an estuary in the Bordeaux region.

With their diverse soil types and maritime climate, the sub-regions of the Right Bank, including Saint-Emilion and Pomerol, are known to possess the ultimate Merlot-growing terroir.
