Today was the second of three days of tastings for the 2011 vintage in Bordeaux. We started the day up in Saint Estephe at Cos d’Estournel. From there we visited Montrose, Lafite Rothschild, Mouton Rothschild, Pichon Lalande, Latour, Pontet Canet, Grand Puy Lacoste, Leoville Poyferre and Ducru Beaucaillou. We squeezed in a UGC tasting for Pauillac, St. Estephe & St. Julien as well.
Here are some pictures from a cocktail party at our host negociants home along with pictures from today’s adventures. Included are Doug with Philipe Cottin who ran Mouton Rothschild for 25 years, Silvie Cazes director of Pichon Lalande, Melanie & Alfred Tesseron of Pontet Canet and pictures from other stopsmalong the way. Bordeaux, toujours Bordeaux!
