I attended an LCBO tasting last week, Bordeaux Meets Burgundy, held at the Le Méridien King Edward Hotel in downtown Toronto. It showcased 2005/2006 Bordeaux and Burgundy, and included a silent auction for various lots from both wine regions. I was excited - of the wines being poured, I was only going for the Burgundy. The plan was to focus on those first, while the palate and mind were still fresh. Any Bordeaux I had the chance to taste would have been a bonus - I was getting all my money's worth on Burgundy.
It was a great event. Met some interesting people, the wines showed well. Tasting notes to follow.DF
