Vinothèque Bordeaux organises wine tastings on a regular basis. This week we could discover the wines from the Dubourdieu family.
Jean-Jacques DUBOURDIEU (pic.) who headed the conference. He is one of Denis Dubourdieu’s sons. Actually he has a brother (Fabrice) who used to be in my classroom….about 20 years ago !! Doesn’t make me feel any younger..
Clos Floridène red wine. Château Doisy Daëne white wine
L’extravagant de Doisy Daëne – Sauternes
Three years in a row, when I was a student, I worked as a grape picker for Carbonnieux. The harvest lasted about 2 months (end of August till end October/early November)
To sum it up : Come at the Vinothèque if you wish to buy a few bottles and be advised on a great selection ! Regarding wines from Bordeaux I think they really have a good choice. As far as the international selection is concerned I would go somewhere else to be honest.
