2014 Bordeaux Wine Release at Marquis Wine Cellars
This is your first chance to taste and buy wines from the highly touted 2014 vintage. Tickets are now on sale for the 2014 Bordeaux Tasting and Release to be held on Saturday, September 16th, 2017 at Marquis Wine Cellars.
The tasting and release event for ticket holders will run from 9:30am to 11am and after that time, the store will open as usual, and all remaining wines will be available to the public for purchase.
Neal Martin of The Wine Advocate states: “2014 Bordeaux is a very good to excellent vintage….The leitmotifs of 2014 are freshness, terroir expression, an erring towards red rather than black fruit, crisp and occasionally quite edgy tannins and vivacity. These are wines destined to sing in the wine glass, wines less concerned with impressing critics like me, more intent on pleasing consumers like you (and me).”
A total of 10 wines, representing most of the major region of Bordeaux, will be poured at the event. Among others, we will be pouring Château Calon Ségur, Château Léoville Poyferré and Château Pontet-Canet. This will be an excellent opportunity to taste a great selection of premium wines and to subsequently purchase them.

Drink Good Wine. That is my motto and I really want to help you drink good wine. What is good wine? That can be a different thing for each people. Some people prefer red wines. Some only like Cabernet Sauvignon.
