La Commanderie’s first event of 2011 starts off with a tasting of exceptional pedigree.  Châteaux Lynch Bages is a 5th Growth in the 1855 Classification but is widely regarded as performing better than its 1855 classification, especially since coming under the direction of Jean-Michel Cazes.  Our Vinotechaire, Howard Bell, will be leading us through more background and history of this property, along with a tasting of three vintages, including 1995, 1997 and 1998.  A generous tasting pour of at least two ounces of each vintage will insure an in-depth examination of this superb Pauillac.

Following the tasting, we will enjoy Fine French Bistro food prepared by Chef Rob Young. Dinner will feature two excellent vintages of Ch. Lynch Moussas, a vineyard once owned by the same Irishman John Lynch, though not located adjacent to the Lynch Bages vineyard.

Initially this event will be limited to 24 attendees due to the availability of tasting wines, but should we reach an additional 12 (assigned to a waiting list) the total maximum for this exceptional event will be 36.  Please do not delay in sending your RSVP today.
