La Bergere Vintners make an impression in Tokyo

  • Featured

Having taken place on 1st and 2nd November in Tokyo, the La Bergere Team attended Vinexpo Nippon, along with some of the most prestigious wineries from around the world.

La Bergere Vintners created quite a buzz, being one of the only négociants to represent Bordeaux in Japan. Bringing the utmost positive attention to fine wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Champagne, a crowd gathered around the La Bergere stand to taste with our team of experts.

We offered tastings on a selection of various prestigious fine wines including Lynch Bages 1991, 1993, 1996, and 2003 as well as Pavillon Rouge de Chateau Margaux 1998, Chateau Lagrange 2003, Chateau Giscours 1988, Pommard Hospices de Beaunes 1989, Haut-Brion 1997, Dom Perignon 1999, Meursault Clos de la Barre from Comtes Lafon 1988, Puligny Montrachet 2004 Les Folatieres from Etienne Sauzet, and a Meursault 2004 from Henri Boillot.

We were pleased to have so much positive feedback from the Japanese importers.  It was an excellent opportunity for La Bergere to solidify our presence in Japan, and we would like to thank our visitors.

Other events at the tasting included Japanese speakers, sommelier Hisao Morigami, a member of the Association de la Somellerie Internationale, who presented food and wine pairings while “Best Sommelier of Japan 2005”, Yochi Sato, presented “great” wines from the Rhône Valley.

Other master classes included tastings of Mouton-Rothschild, Clerc Milon, Almaviva and Opus One as well as wines from Portugal, Germany and spirits.

Fifteen countries were represented at the event and alongside well-known brands such as Graham’s, Grey Goose, Codorniu, Kendall Jackson and Vega Sicilia, were products and companies being introduced to Japan for the first time such as Ceylon Arrack from Sri Lanka and the Escapades range of South African wines.
