Showdown: Bordeaux Wine vs. Bordeaux-Style Wine from Around the World

Enjoying a glass of Bordeaux wine means drinking in the subtlety of blends with uniqueness, balance, harmony and aromatic richness. Bordeaux producers fashion some of the most prestigious wines in the world today, but what about other producers who use the traditional grapes of Bordeaux from their own unique regions with their own unique wine-making skills. Are these wines as good, better of just different?

This is a unique opportunity to answer that question with a head-to-head wine challenge. Guild Director Robert White has assembled four flights of premium wines from Vintages releases and Vintages Online Exclusives selections. Each flight will have a top-ranked Bordeaux, which will be tasted against two Bordeaux-style wines from elsewhere in the same price bracket. Included will be one flight of premium white wines. Wines from producers in six other countries, including an Italian super Tuscan, will take on the wines of Bordeaux. The wines will be tasted blind to help prevent bias.

This is a tasting not to be missed!
