We’re doing eight French wines – six white and two rose, all costing less than $11. And who said wine prices were going up?
You can follow the tasting on Twitter at the #PlanetBordeaux hash tag or follow me at @wine_curmudgeon. (And, in one of those bits of irony that I appreciate, Moet & Chandon -- yes, that Moet -- follows me on Twitter now. Guess someone there needs a solid $8 bottle of wine when they're tired of all that $100 Champage.)
The event starts at 6 p.m. central. The Other Wine Guy, who recently celebrated the birth of his first granddaughter, will be on hand to help taste the wines, but he’ll probably make me do all the tweeting.
Those of you who prefer wine reviews that are longer than 140 characters can check out the blog on Monday, when I’ll post a more traditional account of the tasting.
