Event Description

Bordeaux is probably the World's most famous wine region - renowned for cult wines such as Chateau Margaux, & Mouton-Rothschild which can retail for £1000s a bottle. But there is much more to this warm, south-westerly part of France. It is here that the climate & soils are perfectly suited to Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot, and deliciously vibrant & complex whites from Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon. If you thought that Bordeaux was just expensive red wines, this tasting will show you how much more than that it is; delicious food-friendly reds & whites to suit every budget.

South West France includes some of the best hidden treasures of France. Including Cahors; the original home of Malbec, which is now more famous in Argentina. It is also the home of Tannat from Madiran, thesse days more widely planted in Uruguay. Last, but not least the region of Jurançon, famous for sweet wines but now becoming more widely known for refreshing dry whites.

The evening will take a close look at the wines of both Bordeaux and the hidden treasures of the South West. De-coding the wine laws in Bordeaux, vintage variation, climate issues of the region and what the future holds.

All tastings include: minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, tasting sheet and use of professional tastings glasses.
