Bordeaux – a Holiday Destination

Bordeaux and Burgundy: the very words have a rich and well-rounded ring to them. Partly, it’s those initial bulbous Bs. Mainly, though, it’s that for centuries they have lent a civilised, even spiritual, texture to fleshly pleasures.

Lots of places furnish good wine and food. No others do so in the presence of quite so many chateaux and world-class abbeys. Nowhere else is good living so stamped into the DNA, both a product and a locomotive of the past. Nowhere else do you feel that being plump is a duty imposed by history.

30th Annual AGM 2015 – Bordeaux 10 YEARS on 2005 – 22 Apr 2015

Dear friends,

On the 22nd April after our AGM we will be proceed to our annual decade retrospective theme dinner. This year we will revisit the much hyped vintage 2005 which when released in summer 2006, prices were among the highest offered at the time. The vintage saw nature giving high quality fruit across appellations resulting in rich, concentrated wines and high tannin level.

For the night we will provide a selection of wine representing some of the key appellations in Bordeaux.

At a recent tasting in London on the left bank, the appellation of Meraux had some charming wines with attractive sweet fruits and bright acidity. In northern Medoc, St. Julien and Pauillac the wines showed freshness and definition, with hefty layers of tannin. Right Bank was still young with fruits masked by tannin requiring time.

We look forward to hear members’ comments on the 2005s with our own tasting experience on the coming 22nd April dinner at Hyatt hotel.

Bordeaux, Toujours Bordeaux!

Yours Sincerely,
David Ong
Maitre,
Commanderie de Bordeaux
