Tasting introduction:
With our 3rd and final Round Table Tasting of the year, we will examine the famous French region of Bordeaux and its diverse AOCs. Featuring 6 unique producers, the tasting will focus on 3 key elements of each wine in an attempt to identify and evaluate each. These criteria are:

1. Vintage - How old is the wine? Each wine we taste will be from a different vintage.
2. Location - What part of Bordeaux is the wine from? Bordeaux is home to many unique micro-climates or "terroir". They are identified as sub-regions called Appellations d'origine contrôlée or AOCs for short. Each wine we taste will be from a different AOC.
3. Varietal - What is the blend of grapes in the makeup of each wine? Each wine we taste will be a unique blend of grapes.

We will taste the following Wines:  Somer very impressive estates!

1998 Clos L'Eglise - Pomerol
2003 Chateau Calon Segur - St. Estephe
2005 Chateau Leoville Poyferre - St. Julien
