Chateau Reignac v. The First Growths:
A Blind Tasting Challenge

Sometimes Bordeaux Superieur is SUPERIOR!

Join us for a (blind) tasting of 2006 Chateau Reignac, Chateau Latour, Chateau Margaux, and Chateau Haut Brion! This is an exciting opportunity to come taste three of the First Growths and Chateau Reignac with Proprietor Yves Vatelot and Chuck Hayward of JJ Buckley. Together, we’ll put our palates to the test and find out if we can identify each of the wines and discuss the results.

Chateau Reignac proprietor Yves Vatelot will put his artisan wine—a Bordeaux Superieur—up against three of the most hallowed names in Bordeaux. This blind tasting has been conducted among professional wine tasters, critics and members of the trade to stunning results, and now Mr. Vatelot has graciously extended the opportunity to experience this challenge to customers of JJ Buckley!

This extraordinary tasting will begin at 6pm with a reception, followed by a seated tasting from 6.30pm to approximately 8pm. Space is very limited for this event, so please purchase your tickets as soon as possible (details below).
