Join Hart Davis Hart Wine Co. in New York City for an exciting walk-around tasting featuring the highly-regarded tandem vintages 1989 and 1990. The tasting will include ten exceptional properties from each vintage with examples from both the Right and Left Banks, including three First Growths - Haut-Brion, Latour, and Margaux - as well as traditional favorites such as La Mission Haut-Brion, Lynch-Bages, and Cos d’Estournel. We will be presenting several wines that have earned perfect scores of 100, most notably the 1989 Haut-Brion, 1990 Margaux and 1990 Montrose.
Our venue for the evening will be David Bouley’s Test Kitchen in Tribeca. Chef Bouley’s team will prepare a variety of delicious canapés to pair with the wines. We hope you can join us as we taste and explore the these great vintages.
Please contact Marc Smoler at 312.482.9766 for reservations.

It's a fascinating line-up, and the price is very fair. Wish i could go, but i'll be in New Zealand.

Yeah, I'd go, too, if in NYC, but no chance.
Where in Kiwiland?

Very stunning indeed...good cost cutting move to have La Conseillante represent Pomerol, though St. Emilion is ignored.

That's a stunning line-up indeed. Now how do I justify the trip to NYC? Maybe JD and I can come back and guest edit while GdP is in NZ? I'm pretty good at ranting ;-)
That's a chance at major education in Bords, and therefore awfully tempting--unlikely I'll have a better shot at tasting 100 point first growths with such (presumably) good provenance.

Hello Every one. What is the best way to find out the wine merchants that have these type of wines in their portfolio? I would like to ad them to my wine shop but in all honesty, I am not educated in this area and would very much like to learn it. I know the very best way to learn it is by tasting the wines which is easy enough, I am sure I can find some great examples to buy for myself but when it comes to buying them wholesale, is a different story. If you have any leads, I would appreciate them, I am in the state of Misouri.
