Event Description

PLEASE NOTE: TASTING KITS WILL BE POSTED OUT NEXT WORKING DAY FROM NOVEMBER 24TH. If you book after this date, we will do our best to get your kit to you as soon as possible. As a reminder, anyone registered for this tasting will also have access to the tasting recording so if you are worried about not receiving your kit in time, rest assured you will be able to watch the recording and taste along at any time that is convenient for you.

Join us to review the contest that has been in full-swing for the past four decades, Bordeaux versus the New World. At the forefront of the comparison lies the top first growths of Bordeaux against the boutique wineries of California, but the contest filters down throughout all the wines found in these two regions. In addition to comparing the Cabernet Sauvignons and Merlots of Bordeaux against the U.S we shall also look at Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. In addition we'll look at the Sauvignon Blancs and Semillons of Bordeaux against the New World. This echoes the famous Judgement of Paris Tasting in 1976...

Does the favoured climatic conditions of the New World suit these Bordeaux grape varieties more? Is it a triumph for the traditionalist or a victory for the modernist? Book now to explore this wonderful tasting!

The Wines:
