Your Title (be descriptive but brief)...First Day in Bordeaux

Posted by Gregory Dal Piaz, Jun 4, 2010.

Well I've been in Bordeaux for a day, mostly just getting set with the time, and have not had much in the way of wine but have tacken some killer pictures of this beautiful city.


I'm going on a walking tour in a few minutes, and will no doubt be taking even more photos so look for a video essay email in the near future!


Tomorrow it will be all about the wine though. Hopefully I'll be able to get some good notes, and maybe a few videos, on many wines and Chateaux.


Do you have an favorites?

Are you at some specific event, or just visiting the chateaux you desire...?

I'm going to be there in a couple weeks.  How long are you there?

Visiting specific properties and here for a big tasting today.

Not for a couple of weeks!

Too bad as it would be interesting to travel with you.

tasted 100 2007 Bordeaux today, I think we expect too mch frm Bordeaux if this is a "bad" vintage. It is simply not a grand vintage but I don't want or need anymore "grand vin"!

So, tasting any of the 2009s?

And 2007 was liked by most for the southern Rhone and even California. What did you like from Bordeaux? Top 10 out of your 100 were...?

Hmmm.  Any 2007 recommendations for the hard-working souls moiling for this site as enthusiastic (but unpaid) contributors?  I'm particularly interested in the lesser growths and Cru Bourgeois...

Just a few suggestions would do admirably.

Greg, you never answered exactly how long you're going to be there, whether you're doing any barrel tasting on the most recent vintage, and what your favorite 2007s are....
