BORDEAUX – ARE THE WINES READY TO DRINK?

Dorianne and I are in Bordeaux for eleven nights, both to enjoy this Mecca of great wine, and to begin the process of setting up some wine tours here to begin in November.

After a couple of nights, I am surprised that there is a similar issue with restaurant wine lists here that I have found in the US – many of the Bordeaux’s listed are not ready to drink! Note that we have not been to any top of the line restaurants, but still, we are IN Bordeaux!

We will be researching this further, beginning at lunch today at Le Noailles, a favorite spot. More later!

  1. The world needs more people like Jim–the epitome of selfless service. Our faithful paladin roaming about Bordeaux at the height of Spring, moving fearlessly from one French restaurant to another in a quest to answer, for all of us faithful readers, the question of the moment–is the wine being served drinkable?!
    Thank you Jim, a tough assignment that few but you would be up to–please do keep us posted on your quest.
