Top Vintage: 1990 Bordeaux Tasting
August 21, 2021 @ 1:30 pmSOLD OUT
When it comes to a Bordeaux tasting, is there a group you’d trust more to put together the perfect lineup than the Commanderie de Bordeaux?
Ten guests will gather at 360 Bistro for a Bordeaux tasting from the brightest minds of the Nashville Commanderie.
The theme of the evening is 1990, one of the top vintages of the 20th century. The second hottest year of the century, second only to 1947, it was also the second wettest on record, surpassed only by 1989 in terms of rainfall. It also claims the record for the earliest start date of any vintage during that decade. And the wines only get better and better with age!
If you’ve had a 1990 from really any producer, you know it’s going to be rich, velvety, and one of the most sensual expressions of a Bordeaux wine. Starting with 1990 Dom Pérignon and moving through the best of Bordeaux to the Yquem finish line this lineup is as deep and focused as the wines themselves.

Château Cheval Blanc
Château Cos d’Estournel
