Jun 7 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

WITH ERIC VOGT, MAÎTRE OF THE BOSTON CHAPTER OF THE COMMANDERIE DE BORDEAUX

What builds the various sensations brought by a sip of wine? Why do we fall in love instantly with some wines and viscerally hate others? How do these sensations translate to scientific chemical concepts?

Guests will enjoy a tasting of 10 wines, courtesy of eProvenance and The Spirited Gourmet.

About Eric Vogt and the Commanderie de Bordeaux

profile photo glass (3)

Eric Vogt is maître of the Boston chapter of the Commanderie de Bordeaux, and founder and CEO of e-Provenance. Vogt’s love of wine began during his senior year at Harvard. He and his roommate concluded that they knew “a lot about Chinese art and classical music and some of the aesthetics of life, but nothing about wines”—and asked Laurence W. Wylie, Dillon professor of the civilization of France, to teach them.

The Commanderie de Bordeaux is an international organization whose members gather for dinners, events, and trips focused on the enjoyment and promotion of wines of the various Bordeaux regions. Once an all-male bastion with a mysterious membership process, the Boston club has broadened its base under Eric Vogt’s leadership, reaching out to women and enthusiasts under the age of 40.

About The Spirited Gourmet

“We carry over 1,300 different wines. Unlike most other shops, we don’t depend on ratings and “best sellers” to make our selections. Each wine we carry has been tasted prior to its selection with only the best values (a wine that drinks better than its cost) making the cut. And while others may offer a wider selection we focus on quality, not quantity.”
