  • Product Description

    Please join Bern’s Fine Wines & Spirits on Friday, September 28th, from 6:30-8:30p.m. for a Crush Hour featuring wines from Bordeaux.

    Bordeaux is the undisputed king of red wine. This region has been cultivating vines for more than 2,000 years and has perhaps the highest reputation for fine wines in the entire world.  With its many chateaux and the renowned 1855 Classification, it is a leading destination for wine lovers, as well as the bedrock of the fine wine market and a benchmark for winemakers around the world.

    Five cheeses from the Bern’s Cave du Fromage will be paired with the wines, along with house-made breads. The price is $25.00 per person. Please click the ‘Reservation’ button to make purchase your ticket.

    NOTE: We would like to accommodate everyone, but without a reservation, admission is not guaranteed.

    Featured Wines

    2016 Beau-Rivage, Bordeaux Blanc -$10.95
    Brilliant light yellow color with greenish reflections, Beau-Rivage Blanc strikes the nose as fresh and fruity, with bright lemongrass aromas vibrant notes of citrus. Light-bodied and refreshing on the palate, Beau-Rivage is pleasantly fruity with balanced acidity and good minerality.  -Winery Notes

    2016 Chateau Peyrat, Graves Blanc -$23.95
    Straw and green reflections with a very mineral nose.  Dominated by Sémillon, the wine displays toasted almonds, yellow flowers, quince and mango. -Winery Notes

    2015 Ch Alexandre Bordeaux rouge  -$13.95
    Deep ruby-red colour with a bright purple rim. The nose is intense with ripe berry fruit and spicy eucalyptus aromas. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with a good length and mature fruit. Round tannins on the end. A perfect accompaniment to red meats and all types of cheeses. -Winery Notes

    2014 Ch Batailley Lions de Batailley Pauillac  -$35.67
    Lions de Batailley is produced from a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon, a grape varietal which grows well on Batailley's gravel soil. Balanced, silky tannins with acidity and length. It is a wine that drinks easily young, but will also age well.  -Winery Notes

    2014 Branaire Ducru st Julien  -$74.95
    Very pure and expressive, featuring lovely violet and cassis aromas and flavors that stream forth, backed by light anise and graphite hints. Maintains a fresh feel through the finish, with light minerality engaging with the fruit. Best from 2019 through 2028. -93 points Wine Spectator

    2012 Ch Brane Cantenac Margaux  -$99.95
    It is hard not to give kudos to proprietor Henri Lurton, as he’s done such a great job at this famous estate in Margaux. The 2012 has an opaque ruby/purple color and beautifully sweet, velvety tannins. It had to be more difficult achieving this level in the Médoc in 2012 than in Graves or the Right Bank sectors of Pomerol and St.-Emilion. With a lush, supple texture, medium to full body, and beautiful flowery blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, this opaque wine is pure and impressively endowed. Another beauty from Lurton, it is soft enough to be drunk early on, but promises to age well for 15-20 years. -91 points Robert Parker

    Ch Aiguilhe Cote de Castillon  -$29.95
    Stephan von Neipperg of Château Canon la Gaffelière was an early proponent of Castillon vineyard potential and chose this property which is on the same ridge as Saint-Emilion. Fruity and ripe, this is a generous wine. Finely structured tannins back up the black-currant fruits and give the wine a texture that bodes well for the future. Drink from 2019. -91 points Wine Enthusiast
