The Fete du Bordeaux
Sunday, October 22nd
Mandarin Oriental Boston

The Fête is an annual travelling festival of food and Bordeaux, celebrating some of its greatest châteaux, and in particular the top ‘family run’ estates rather than those owned by big businesses. All are favourites of mine:
Château Ormes de Pez
In addition to getting a sneak peek at the vintage about to hit the market (in this instance, the spectacular and highly anticipated 2015s), the Châteaux will present a range of back vintage wines to pair with each course. Each family will have a representative present, so, as well as a chance to drink legendary wines and eat spectacular food in a magnificent setting, this will be an opportunity to hear from and meet some of the key players in Bordeaux today.
I’ve done a quick count and estimate that the value of a bottle each of the wines we’ll be drinking would cost not far short of $2,000 at retail. Consider normal restaurant wine markups and a tasting menu, and at $300 this is an opportunity for one of the greatest value food and drink experiences you’re ever likely to get.
We are very proud to be hosting these remarkable Châteaux in partnership with the Mandarin Oriental, even more so to be sharing the experience with all of you.
