If you’ve ever dreamed of tasting hundreds of 90-plus-point wines reviewed by Wine Spectator magazine in one place on one night, then your dream just came true. Wine Spectator’s 2017 Grand Tour of three cities kicks off at The Mirage May 6. Taste Old World benchmarks such as Château La Mission Haut-Brion’s La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion 2010 and New World rising stars such as Mollydooker’s Shiraz

McLaren Vale Carnival of Love 2014, or new classics such as Heitz’s Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Martha’s Vineyard 2005—more than 240 wines in all. And oh, yes, bubbles will be flowing, as the tour features Champagne from Perrier-Jouët and Louis Roederer to Henriot and Besserat de Bellefon.

These award-winning wines are a testimony to the high quality and extraordinary diversity of today’s wine world. The Grand Tour gives oenophiles an opportunity to revisit old favorites, discover new tastes and enjoy delectable nibbles. The Mirage, May 6, 7–10 p.m.,
