Spring has arrived in Europe, and as late March drifts into April, thoughts turn to Bordeaux and the unveiling of the 2010 vintage.
I’m already packing my bags for Bordeaux. From 10th-17th April. I will be down on the left and right banks of Gironde for a busy week of tastings. Oh yes, this year both the Cork Brothers will be tasting the Bordeaux 2010.
We actually arrive Bordeaux one week later of the official UGC Primeur tasting. So that we can tasting ala carte, concentrate and focus on the IGW.
Below is the preview of what are the Chateaux that we will be going. The Cork brothers will try the best to post our tasting notes and our thoughts of Bordeaux 2010.
