Wine Tasting in the Trapp Family Lodge Wine Cellar: French Red Bordeaux Stowe Vermont

We will be tasting new releases of French Red Bordeaux, for inclusion on our list. Bill O'Connor of Baker Distributing, will be on hand to discuss the wines and answer any questions. A Bordeaux wine is any wine produced in the Bordeaux region of France.
Average vintages produce over 700 million bottles of Bordeaux wine, ranging from large quantities of everyday table wine, to some of the most expensive and prestigious wines in the world. Red Bordeaux, is generally made from a blend of grapes. Permitted grapes are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Carmene.
Today Malbec and Carmenere are rarely used, with Chateau Clerc Milon, a fifth growth Bordeaux, being one of the few to still retain the Carmenere vine. Bordeaux wine is made by more than 8,500 producers or Chateau. There are 60 appellations of Bordeaux wine. In Bordeaux the concept of terroir plays a pivotal role in wine production with the top estates aiming to make terroir driven wines that reflect the place they are from, often from grapes collected from a single vineyard.
The soil of Bordeaux is composed of gravel,sandy stone, and clay. The region's best vineyards are located on the well drained gravel soils that are frequently found near the Gironde river. An old adage in Bordeaux is the best estates can "see the river" from their vineyard and the majority of land that face the riverside are occupied by classified estates. The format will be casual, walk around with cheese and bread.
The wines featured will be:
Chateau Saint-Sulpice, Bordeaux 2006
Chateau Clos Lavixon, Bordeaux 2006
Chateau Greysac, Medoc 2005
Chateau Larose-Trintaudon, Haut Medoc 2005
Chateau Simard, Saint-Emilion 1998
A sign-up sheet will be available at the front desk (253-5742 or 800-826-7000) and there will be a $15.00 fee per person.
