Celebrate Bastille Day on Tuesday, July 14th, 2009 by joining Blanchards in West Roxbury, MA for an "Affordable Bordeaux" seminar:

"We've enlisted the help of a Bordeaux expert for a seminar on this most famous of wine regions to mark Bastille Day. Learn about the vast diversity within the region, the difference between Right- and Left Bank reds, the less-known but equally wonderful whites and the famous sweet wines of Sauternes. Bordeaux has a reputation for being expensive, but all wines tasted will be low- to moderately-priced. Extraordinary artisan French cheeses from the Boston Cheese Cellar will accompany the wines."

I've attended sessions similar to this one at Blanchards previously (one featuring Riesling and the other Brunello). I thought they were fantastic. The events are presented in a sit-down format and offer a combination of wine tasting, light food, and education. Knowledgeable presenters, excellent wines, surprisingly good food, and best of all- I've met really nice people that I've kept in touch with since. A discount on the wines being tasted -and- on any wines purchased that night has been offered at past events.

I first discovered Blanchards while the much-heralded 2005 Bordeaux vintage was coming to market. My research at the time indicated that they had the best prices on the wines I was looking for from this category, and they have since had a high batting average when it comes to stocking wines I'm looking for at very competitive prices.
