Grands Crus Classés dinner at Château Mouton Rothschild
Day 1 of Vinexpo 2013 in Bordeaux ended with a fabulous evening at Château Mouton Rothschild. For almost 30 years, the CONSEIL DES GRANDS CRUS CLASSÉS EN 1855 (Médoc & Sauternes) has hosted a dinner at one of the Premier Grand Cru Classés honoring the International Press on the opening night of the world’s premier wine and spirits exhibition, VINEXPO Bordeaux. This year, the tradition continued as more than 600 people gathered at Château Mouton Rothschild.
Following a tasting of Sauternes & Barsac Grand Cru Classé wines from 2006 through 2009, Médoc Grand Cru Classé wines from the 2005 vintage were served. Then the 1996 to 1982 vintages were served with the main course, followed by Mouton Rothschild 1975 poured from Imperial-sized bottles. To conclude, the guests enjoyed a Château Coutet 1989.
