I echoed that same sentiment to the hosts of the event. Unfortunately, they couldn't see the rationale of spending a few bucks for some very high paying customers. ($500 per person)
Also, I could have sworn that when we registered for the event, it was a "Grands Echezeaux" tasting, but somehow was changed later to a "Echezeaux" tasting.
Either way it was a fun event, although it could have been presented a bit better.
