Sigel’s Fête du Bordeaux Dinner at The Mansion on Turtle Creek

“2009 may turn out to be the finest vintage I have tasted in 32 years of covering Bordeaux…a magical vintage.” – Robert Parker

This man can afford this dinner.

If I were a rich man, I’d buy the last two seats to this spectacular dinner on October 26. Since I am neither rich nor a man, a subject that is oft debated amongst these cubicles, I will pass the opportunity on to those who have enough dough to go. The dinner looks to be bobbydazzler guaranteed to erase the reality of the brutal economy from your mind. If only for one night.

Hit it, Jasper:

Our [Sigel’s] 2009 Vintage Premier Fete de Bordeaux at The Mansion on Turtle Creek promises to be the most exciting dining event in Dallas this year. In addition to the wonderful white and red wines from Bordeaux we are proud to announce that Maison Ruinart will be our Champagne partner for the evening.

  1. Sounds amazing. Does the $225 per person include tax and gratuity?

    Is the guy in that picture really rich? If so, can I be his date?
