Bring Your Own Bordeaux BY JEFF KWARSICK, Vice Chargé de Presse THE FORT WORTH Chapter's most recent annual "Bring Your Own Bordeaux" dinner was held at the Fort Worth Club on November 11. One of the chapter's most popular events, the evening exceeded all expectations. Members dug into the far reaches of their personal cel- lars to find remarkable offerings from one of the world's most cel- ebrated wine regions. Acclaimed Executive Chef Tim Prefontaine, in consultation with Vice Conseiller Gastronomique Jean Eason Moore, designed an exceptional meal to complement the stellar bordeaux that dotted the tables and slaked thirst throughout the evening. The braised short ribs were so per- fectly prepared that they melted even before reaching their intended target! The wines included vin- tages from the 1980s to the 2010s, first growth to fourth growth, Left Bank and Right Bank. As occurs every year, attendees eagerly moved among the tables, sharing their offerings and sampling those of fellow confrères in hopes of broadening their palates (and earning tasting bragging rights at the next wine event)! Everyone who attends this event finds it a great opportunity to challenge the taste buds by discern- ing the unique characteristics of the many châteaux and blends of the region.
