Margaux Tasting Rumours

Nothing is confirmed, but rumour has it that the winemakers from Chateau Margaux, the iconic French Bordeaux wine, will be visiting Toronto this spring, and are set to do a tasting of their wares June 1st at the Summerhill LCBO (10 Scrivener Square, in the old train station).

I havn't heard any details as of yet, but if it goes the way the Chateau Latour tasting did last year, expect it to involve a couple of vintages of the main label, as well as a few more of their second wine, Pavillon Rouge (and the ultra-rare Pavillon Blanc, if we're lucky). The Latour tasting was free, and I believe the plan is for the Margaux tasting to be the same, although I havn't been able to confirm that yet.

Ever wanted to know how the rich drink? Now's your chance.
