In the ancient days, the Bordeaux region was famed for its white wine. The transition to red occurred in the 1970s, as Bordeaux’s signature red blend began to rise in popularity. The British were among the first consumers to appreciate red Bordeaux, which they called ‘claret’.

A Bordeaux Wine Dinner

With Monsieur Daniel Greathouse
Sunday, September 13, 2020 • 5:00 pm

Join us for one of the most anticipated wine dinners every year–our annual Bordeaux Dinner featuring the Wines of Bordeaux with an emphasis on the outstanding 2016 vintage and a few older treasures. Mr. Dan Greathouse, Heidelberg Distributing Company, Ohio’s largest importer of Bordeaux Wine, will co-host this event. We have selected 15 wines for this year’s dinner including 12 red wines from the outstanding 2015 & 2016 vintages.

“Some winemakers in Bordeaux are calling the 2016 vintage part of “the second coming of Bordeaux” due to the overall excellent quality of the wines and their unique character. And after tasting more than 1,300 wines from 2016 a few weeks ago in Bordeaux, I must agree. After the superb 2015, Bordeaux is showing great quality in the bottle once again with many outstanding 2016s. We were impressed with the freshness and structure of the reds and whites produced in 2016 as well as their purity and transparency.”

“The wines have a classicism that reminds me of the great wines of the 1980s, but they have much more precision and clarity due to advances in viticulture and winemaking since then.”
– James Suckling
