Are YOU ready to run a gustative Marathon? The 9th version of this wonderful tasting open to everyone takes place on Saturday 17th May. There are organised dinners that evening too at some of our most beautiful châteaux with a range of wines of older vintages from a good spread of top classed growths (not just the host château). Some are already sold out but some still have availability. Château Olivier is stunning and not far from Bordeaux. Transport is provided from central Bordeaux. The only problem is knowing how to pace yourself on this gustative Marathon with so many fine wines to appreciate!

Yes very difficult these days but there is a way! Come to central Bordeaux on the 18th May, and you will have the chance to taste many grand cru classé wines including the excellent 2010 vintage and an older vintage of each of the 100 properties present. Pinpoint your favorite properties for when you have won the loto. ttp://ugcb.net/en/wgc This is the 8th weekend organised by Bordeaux’s Union des Grand Crus open to wine-lovers around the world.
