Burgundy and Bordeaux with Ben

Wed Dec 20, 5-7pm, sale all day (20% off)


Ben represents a small importer/distributor that specializes in Burgundy and Bordeaux, and you can taste a line-up crafter for the holidays. Great for presents, feasts and yourself, these wines are some of the best. Ben is very knowledgeable and can tell you all about these four iconic wines. First is a gorgeous Puligny-Montrachet White Burgundy, followed by a Red Burgundy from the Cote de Nuits (the best area for Red Burgundy). Then is on to Bordeaux, with both a “right-bank” and “left-bank” styles. The Bouscaut Grand Cru is dominated by Merlot and the Echo Lynch Bages by Cabernet Sauvignon. Come and enjoy this present-worth wines!
