La SOIREE des GRANDE CRUS....Meet, Drink and Join BORDEAUX'S NEW GENERATION of Winemakers and Chateaux Owners...A MUST ATTEND EVENT in New York City..

In less than a week, the BORDEAUX WINE JOURNEY of a LIFETIME begins.

This MUST ATTEND event is like none other.....On the evening of Thursday, January 27th,
82 MERCER Street in SOHO, will be transformed into a MODERN BORDEAUX WINE CELLAR, complete with GRAND CRUS CLASSE de BORDEAUX's New Generation of Winemakers and Estate owners, showcasing wines from both the Left and Right Bank.


The JOURNEY begins at 6pm for Early Access Tickets ($250) and 7:30pm for General Admission Tickets ($185) ...DON'T LET THE PRICE SCARE YOU!!!

for GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS at 7:30pm...TICKETS, for readers only cost $135++

What you get is a SPECIAL and certainly UNIQUE BORDEAUX JOURNEY, wine cellar style, with the opportunity to meet and speak directly with SEVENTEEN Chateau owners and Winemakers, while drinking and discussing their wines. The fabled 2000 and 2005 vintages will be part of this Exceptional Wine tasting, which includes illustious Estates, such as Chateau Grand Mayne (St. Emilion Grand Cru Classe) ; Chateau Dassault (St. Emilion Grand Cru Classe); Chateau Lafon-Rochet (Saint Estephe Grand Cru Classe); Chateau de Fieuzal (Pessac Leognan);
Chateau la Conseillante (Pomerol) and Chateau Malartic Lagraviere (Grand Cru Class de Graves). The wineries make up about 5% of the total Bordeaux production. Wines representing SAUTERNES, SAINT JULIEN, PAUILLAC, POMEROL, MARGAUX, SAINT EMILION and PESSAC-LEOGNAN will be poured.

Hors d'oeuvres , cheese and chocolates created just for the evening by Third Generation Chocolatier Francois Payard, will be passed around. Francois Payard has made chocolates to pair with the six Boredeaux Appellations. This should be quite a treat.

To top the evening and a chance to take home a BREITLING CHRONOMAT B01 or Exceptional bottles of wine (Magnums and Double Magnums) donated by the Chateau's, ENTER the BREITLING WINE CHALLENGE.

Test your knowledge of Bordeaux wines by answering FIVE questions correctly. ELEVEN guests with the highest scores will be selected for a BLIND TASTING of SIX wines. The WINNER will be awarded a BREITLING CHRONOMAT B01 worth $7690 or a Rare Magnum or Double Magnum bottle of Bordeaux wine.

This BLIND TASTING easily justifies the ticket price and should encourage everyone to attend.
